Why Should Jesus Love Me?

Sitting at Jesus’ Feet
But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." (Luke 10:40)
*
Martha loved Jesus dearly and would have done anything for Him. Her struggle came in being still!****Martha spent so much time serving Jesus that she had no time to enjoy His company or to get to know Him better.**** The harder Martha worked, the more frustrated she became with her sister Mary. Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet while Martha scurried around the house to make sure everything was in perfect order for Jesus. Martha’s service, though it started out with gladness, deteriorated into resentment and envy.
*
It is good to want to serve Christ as an expression of love for what He has done for you.****Yet when your activity consumes your time and energies so that you have no time for Him, you have become too busy!**** You may think, as Martha did, that if you don’t do the work, it won’t get done. That may be true,**** but Jesus taught that your highest priority must be your relationship with Him.******** If anything detracts you from that relationship, that activity is not from God.******** God will not ask you to do something that hinders your relationship with Christ.**** At times, serving God and carrying out His mission is the best way to know and experience God. At other times,****it is more important to sit quietly at His feet and listen to what He is saying.****
*
We are not called to continually sit at the feet of Jesus, otherwise our service for Him would cease. Neither are we called to serve Him incessantly, without taking time to **** find restoration in His presence.**** Have you been serving God so diligently that you have not had time to spend with Him?

Matthew 7:15 ¶Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
*
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
*
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
*
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
*
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
*
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them
*
*
Matthew Henry’s Commentary:
15-20 Nothing so much prevents men from entering the strait gate, and becoming true followers of Christ, as the carnal, soothing, flattering doctrines of those who oppose the truth. They may be known by the drift and effects of their doctrines. Some part of their temper and conduct is contrary to the mind of Christ. Those opinions come not from God that lead to sin.

Homemade Coconut Milk Shampoo:

homemade coconut milk

1/4 cup coconut milk (Like I said, you can either make your own, or use store-bought)

1/3 cup liquid castile soap (like Dr. Bronner’s)

1 tsp vitamin E, olive or almond oil

10 to 20 drops your choice of essential oils (I used lavender. Next time I think I’ll do something citrusy just for fun.:-)

homemade coconut milk

Combine all ingredients in a shampoo bottle or jar and shake well to mix.(I bought the squeeze bottles above at the dollar store.) You can keep it in the shower for up to one month…just shake before use.

Use about a teaspoon every time you shampoo.(I used a little more, but my hair is pretty long right now!)

I loved pretty much everything about this shampoo. It smelled good…it lathered up nicely (which I feel strongly about)…and after washing, rinsing and drying…my hair felt soft and smooth. No fly-aways.

Oh, yes they are. They know you don't have a radio show, they know you're not a businessman, they know you're not an entrepreneur, and it's painfully obvious you're not a writer. They know you like to pretend. You're not fooling anyone but yourself.

Hang on. So, you're telling me that you're so unprecedentedly ignorant that you didn't know that there are over 2 Billion (and growing) Christians in the world???? You really didn't know that??? You might want to look that up. I'm a bit embarrassed for you. Apologies for interrupting your blind delirium of sheer, crushing callowness.........Carry on.
Aw. You flatter me. I approve.

I live in the 21st Century, in a country where religinuts are a minority. Thanks be to Superman!

On a further note, famous christians were and are just as indoctrinated as anyone else. A famous sheep is still just a sheep but famous.
Please provide historical evidence that the jesus actually existed.
No, a book of stories is not evidence.
There are more story books that could prove the existence of magical elves if evidence worked that way.
I see so much unbelievers on topix write some form of this question many times. And the last unbeliever I see write it I write this to them...but they can't give me an answer. so maybe you can.

I'm rather curious, since I always see this "prove it" claim from unbelievers on the billboard that want believers to prove to them God exist or Jesus is God or the bible true or Jesus exist etc, etc. Why do you think the believer in Jesus Christ has to prove anything to you---when that believer is not responsible for what you believe? Should it not be >>your<< responsibility to believe? and if you don't believe---why put the responsibility on someone else to convince you, when there is no consequence or harm to the believer for you not believing? A better response from you would be "you don't believe". Well then fine, don't believe. But why are you trying to >make< a believer >make< you believe? that's rather strange writer.

You don't believe Jesus existed....then don't believe Jesus existed. No one is responsible for what you believe except you and you can't make someone not believe in Jesus Christ.

Too late? Too late for what exactly? The only thing that's "too late" is for your quaking, little ass to have any credibility. I've proven two things beyond a reasonable doubt today, number one you're nothing but a chicken-shit little wimp, and number two you're illiterate. I've also proven that I literally control you........and I mean control you big time. Have fun looking up more high school scores, okay? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
SUCKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!
Like I said..........IT'S NICE TO HAVE YET ANOTHER JAILHOUSE BIT*H

OF YOU LIKE A GRAND PIANO. I PLAY RETARDED SIMIANS LIKE YOU, BETTER
THAN BEETHOVEN PLAYED HIS PIANO SONATAS.
Let's go over this again, shall we? You're an entrepreneur, a businessman, a writer, and you work in radio, and yet you spend the majority of your time on Topix. See how that doesn't work out. These are all time consuming jobs requiring long hours, and yet, here you are. Don't feel too badly, many Topix sociopaths make the same mistake. Talk to your therapist.

YEEEEEEEEAH!!!!!! Okay, I'm not a writer. This coming from a bona fide nincompoop, who cant' differentiate between "are" and "is". You pathetic little fool. Like I said, I'm a writer, I'm on the Radio, I'm a VERY successful businessman and entrepreneur (how many times did it take you to spell that word correctly......I'll bet 7) and a very happily married father of two. And I already told you I care more about African shitting habits, than I do about your opinion. You've been exposed you invertebrate little punk, and you've been outed for the illiterate Chimp that you are. Now tuck that little tail between your legs and go home to your little mommy. You lily-livered loony.
How many times must I tell you - you're none of these things - you're a loser. Write it down if that helps you remember.

There's not much in your life worth discussing, so yes, I don't have many options other than repeating you're a sociopathic loser who lives in his head.

Yet you care enough to provide several paragraphs that are completely devoid of evidence.

I dunno, not that well I suppose.

My kids seem pretty determined to worship Ben 10, as far as fictional characters go, I think they could do better, even with the added bonus of their grandmother thinking Ben 10 is the debil.

I want them to think for themselves though so don't push the issue too much.
