Love is....never giving up on others. Think about it. In our self-centered society, how refreshing it is when someone refuses to give up on someone. Isn't that what Jesus did for us? He went the distance because He loves us- we can do the same for others.
One thing we can do in those dark times when we're tempted to give up on someone, is to speak positive words over them. That's exactly what my mother and sister did in one of the darkest moments of my life. They refused to be moved by my rebellion and kept saying, "Dino will preach the gospel!" It looks like their words worked! Yours will too!
Join us this month in our love is series. Let's take love to a whole new level. Let's have the reputation as a church that flat out refuses to give up on people!
Pastor Dino is the Lead Pastor at Life Christian Church Troy Campus and has been in ministry since the mid 1990's. He is married to Jeanne and they have three amazing daughters: Victoria, Alyssa, and Andreya.
During our prayer and fasting in January, Pastor Marie asked us to make a list what was lacking and what was debt. On my list was: To get my drivers license, pay back my loan, find a place to live, and buy a car.
7 days later, I got my driver’s license, and one week later, I had the money to pay back my loan for my plane ticket. (My loan was $1000.00) Two months later, a friend and I found a place to live, and the best part is that we didn’t need the co- signer to lease our apartment. Then, I bought my car, I paid six months of my car insurance, and I also paid $650.00 for my school.
In less than five months I got everything that was on my list. Sometimes things look like impossible for us, but with God everything is possible. So, declare the word of God, have a relationship with Jesus, be strong in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.
