Love

The Narrow Path

Christ_statue

John 15:12-13

“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

There are all kinds of rules we humans make up that we say are necessary to be a “good” follower of Christ. But Jesus basically boils it down to one thing: love. And He defines what love is with his very life. He pours out His life for the good of all. Author Ilia Delio calls Jesus a “whole-maker.” In her book, The Emergent Christ, she writes that “Jesus’ whole-making is self-surrender for a greater good, and anyone who makes whole by self-surrender for a greater good is following Jesus, whether or not they are conscious of doing so” (p. 69). Jesus shows God’s mercy and compassion to everyone. No one is left out. Jesus loves even those who persecute Him and He refuses to…

6 Steps to Getting Started as a Freelance Content Marketing Writer

Live to Write - Write to Live

You’re a writer. You dream of one day earning your living writing novels or screenplays or even (gasp!) short stories or poetry. But, in the meantime, you have bills to pay. (For some reason, landlords and banks don’t accept manuscripts in lieu of rent or mortgage payments.)

Then one day you hear about this thing called “content marketing.” Sounds like it’s all the rage in the marketing world. Consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) companies of all kinds and sizes are jumping on board, and they need content. Lots and lots of content – websites and blog posts, eBooks and special reports, case studies, white papers, and bylined articles for good, old-fashioned print publications. And you think, “I could do that.”

You’re right. Maybe you could.

The growth of content marketing has been a boon for a lot of writers. The demand for written content has skyrocketed over the last few…

Compassion In Action

The Narrow Path

Statue_St_Pedro

Acts 19:8

He entered the synagogue, and for three months debated boldly with persuasive arguments about the kingdom of God.

Paul understood that following Christ was about taking part in the building of the kingdom of God…right here…right now. But trying to “argue” someone into believing that will probably not be very fruitful. Arguments usually result in counter-arguments and resistance. From the very beginning…the followers of Jesus were already making Christianity into a left-brained, intellectual argument. In many ways we are still arguing over words and their meanings when it comes to religion. Funny…but Jesus never seemed to get into arguments with people over doctrines and dogmas. As far as we can gather from the gospels, Jesus spent His time living-out the Good News…extending love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion to all people…never seeming to care what their beliefs were. (The only people Jesus argued with…

Listen to Your Heart

The Narrow Path

Acts 20:22

But now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem. What will happen to me there I do not know.

Have you ever experienced a strong inner yearning that compelled you to carry out some mission or action of good will? The more you pray (as in listening in sacred silence and surrendering yourself to God’s Presence) the more I believe you will experience the Presence of God. Inner inclinations to take steps in new directions will begin to emerge. The same Holy Spirit who compelled St. Paul to preach “the gospel of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24) is ready to stir-up in you a desire to do the same…but in a unique way that fits your gifts, talents and situation. St. Paul was only able to tell people about the unconditional love and compassion of God because he himself experienced it. It came when he was…

The Last Wishes of Alexander the Great….

On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and
told them his three ultimate wishes:
1. The best doctors should carry his coffin …
2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious
stones) should be scattered along the procession to the
cemetery …
3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the
coffin for all to see !!
One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual
requests asked Alexander to explain .
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say :
1. “I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate
that in the face of death , even the best doctors in the world
have no power to heal ..”
2. “I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that
everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth , will
stay on earth..”
3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people
understand that we come to this world empty handed and we
leave this world empty handed after the most precious
treasure of all is exhausted, and that is : TIME.
We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is our
most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce
more wealth, but we cannot produce more time.
When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of
our life that we will never take back . Our time is our life !. Let
us use our time to share SALVATION in CHRIST JESUS.
The best present that you can give to your family and friends
is your TIME to talk about SALVATION. Let them know that
JESUS will come to judge humanity according to what we do
during our stay on earth. HEAVEN is real and hell is real.
Choose HEAVEN.
