S.T.A.R.S. Don't Fit Into Circles

Remember that God's children are STARS (Servants To the Anointed Risen Savior) and STARS don't fit into circles. If that be the case, let the only "circle" you belong to be that of His never-ending extended love for all people. 
 
A FB friend posted something to the effect a few days ago (can't remember which friend it was :/... but I sure wish they had a Super-LIKE button, but anyway, it went something like this: "God likes (loves) the people you don't". OUCH!

So, let me get to the crux of my message without beating around any bushes. The best and quickest way to get rid of our prejudices and pride is to first acknowledge that it exists, then ask God to REMOVE it, AND THEN (this is the best part) … let others SEE IT by your example. TO KNOW GOD is to FLOW in what He moves in; and He doesn’t move in tainted LOVE.

Many say they "serve" the Lord, but you will find that the "many that are serving" are hypocritical in their "love and in their hearts", which isn't Christ's love at all because Christ's love has no "barriers" or "limitations" or "partialities". You may fool people some of the times but you can't fool God; and you can't fool His anointed because the secret things God reveals to His servants.

Another friend once posted many moons ago (again, I can't remember her name either :/...) but anyways, she gave an excellent interpretation of the God kind of love. It is found in this acronym: C.O.L.O.R. - Commandments Of Love Overcome Race. POW! Again, I wish there had been a SUPER-LIKE button.

So, in your journey with Christ (we all have to start somewhere), if you find along the way that you are struggling with the "spirit of prejudice", which is sinful, prideful, and hateful, ask the Lord to forgive you and then CHANGE! There is NO WAY that as a child of God you can ever STAY THE SAME, unless there is a spiritual leak somewhere in your gas tank and the Word of the Lord can never take root in your life long enough so that "CHANGE" can occur.

James 3:17 reads, "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, WITHOUT PARTIALITY, and WITHOUT HYPOCRISY." Wow ...

Finally, let us examine "our hearts", and when the light of the Holy Spirit shines upon a "fungus (sin)", don't DENY that it's there but CONFESS IT like you would any other sin, and then DEAL WITH IT. Change CANNOT OCCUR without your cooperation, and you sitting among the roses doesn’t make you flower anymore than a person going to church or saying they are Christians make them a Christian.

What defines real bona-fide Christianity is the lifestyle that we live ACCORDING to the Written Word, not our ideologies or the poor and weak excuse we make “that’s just how I was raised”. You’d be surprised at how much our parents (as good as they were or as bad as they were) and CULTURE have negatively influenced our behavior and mindsets. There’s a saying, “Somethings are TAUGHT and somethings are CAUGHT”. Well, many of us were “taught” how to be prejudice by the people we love and look up to. That’s why we are admonished to “PUT ON CHRIST” because doing so is like putting on NEW CLOTHES – Galatians 3:27

The word Christian means follower of Christ, disciple one; Christ-like. So, if we say that we are followers of Christ, then should not our walk and talk line up with that of Jesus? Remember this, Christ died for ALL mankind, not a “sect or group” of people or a certain “color” of people. John 3:16 says, “For God so LOVED THE WORLD (all inclusive) that He gave His only begotten Son; that WHOSOEVER (anybody) believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”

Oh, and one last thing, if this message pricks the heart, it’s a good sign. Our conscience is God's warning system - be happy when it bothers you, be worried when it doesn't. But if you REJECT this message, you are not rejecting me but the One who sent me. I don’t take things personal and am not easily offended. For I would rather be separated by TRUTH than united by LIES.

I’m always here to pray with you and for you. For I am a woman of many nations – I LOVE ALL LIKE MY JESUS!
 
Additional Scriptures:
1 John 2:11 But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.

1 John 3:15 Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.
