Does God really technically save?

Before anyone shoots me in the foot, let me start by saying one thing up front. I have never ever in the past, nor will I now ever state that God is not merciful, nor will I state that Christ is not the answer to salvation. Let me be very clear about this fact.

We here at GSH Ministries believe this truth with all our hearts. So please do not read too much into the title of this blog post. Let me further explain my question in context.

OK, so, the act of saving... What more specifically is this? It's an action. Is it not? I think we all can agree on that.

Lifes Railway!

Life’s Railway!
There are so many roads that we can travel down, That it may seem daunting at times.
Life can take us on a ride through many different areas of our day, and or night that we just do not know which way to turn.
At some point in our ride through life we need to stop, and listen to what God has for us.
God is our conductor on Life’s Railway.
He knows what we need to do to get through the rough spots that we may be going through right at this moment in time.
I have been on a few rides through Life’s Railway; That is for sure.

Stop and Listen!

A few days ago, I finished a book called "P.S. You're Not Listening".
In this book, the author tells the true stories of five children that have been given a bad reputation and the trials and tribulations leading to a common goal.

The children acted out in class, and the teacher tried to help them through their problems. Each student kept on telling her that she was not listening. As Eleanor Craig helped her students , she noticed their respective progress.

What a beautiful illustration!

Tonight while at a church dinner we attended for us volunteers, my mother told our table a story which deeply touched my heart. I'd like to share it with all of you.

One thing you will quickly learn about my mom is, she loves nature, and loves animals. If she could have a full house of them, I think she would. But alas, I digress.

In Jesus's Name!

Have you ever felt down, confused, or just werry of life's little problems?
Not knowing which way to turn or what you should do?

I have felt this way at times. - Let me tell you what I have done to get through the places within my life which seem so hard to walk through without screaming at the top of my lungs.

The Holy Spirit Took Over

Last Saturday, I attended a concert at the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix of Mark Lowry, who I've been informed was part at one time of the Gaither Vocal Band. I don't know much about the guy, but he was very profound as well as being very good. Admittedly, Christian comedy is, like Christian music, a taste which I'm still in the long process of acquiring; but, Lowry as well as others have really proved that the Spirit can move through comedic performance. Here's the crux (pun intended) of the matter.

Brothers and Sisters

This last week has been a huge time of reflection for me regarding God's amazing love. Even more so however has been the thought of how we, as christians should love one another as Christ loves us.

The most important commandment in scripture says to love one another as Christ loves us. This really got me thinking...

The huge question which was risen in my mind was, "Who, and what are/is a family?" As christians, we all are part of the bigger picture, the family of God. One may ask more specifically what this means.

Praying for Perpetrators: Revelation 21:4 and the Parkland high school shooting

In this age of grievance, social media's blessings are often understated. If God is infinite, then it's due him to say that he makes no mistakes. Personally, I believe that God created social media as a very quick, very inimitable method for the propagation of ideas. The broken, fallen nature of this paradigm causes ideas which do not befit God's infinite, loving mercy.

A Love Hate Relationship

On 8 November, 2016, the United States of America saw a landmark presidential election, wherein a billionaire outsider took the rudder of the ship of state. Our forty-fifth president is a polarizing figure, eliciting one of two emotions, great fondness or great loathing.

Be Still and Know He is God!

Hurry, Hurry, scurry, worry! That is what we as christians do through out our day.
We rush around trying to get things done in a timely manner. - We think that we need to get things done faster and faster each day that we go to work, school, or even in our daily lives. That could work out; but We also could stress ourselves out to the point that we collapse and that is not a good thing.
