Endless Compassion

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

GOD’S care for us extends to all the details of our lives. He knows when we are hurting and wants to offer comfort to us. His compassion is personal, continuous and always available! The Holy Spirit, who lives inside each and every believer in Yeshua, also comforts us. He is there to comfort and console us anytime, day and night. 

Consider how the actually immeasurable compassion of the FATHER was demonstrated through YESHUA’S life. YESHUA met Peter’s betrayal with forgiveness.  Thomas’s doubts were answered by YESHUA Himself (John 20:27). Our mistakes won’t stop YESHUA from loving us.  Know & Believe this!

2 Corinthians 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our MESSIAH YESHUA, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.

GOD’S comfort and care are adequate for anything we face (declining health, our finances, family troubles, etc.!) GOD’S Word tells us we are to comfort one another as we are comforted. In this troubled world we live in, there are people all around us who are in need of help. 

Sooo… to whom can you show compassion today in your corner of the world?

Saving Grace

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

FATHER GOD has predestined every believer to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, YESHUA. This process begins at salvation and will continue throughout your lifetime until you join Him in Heaven.                                 

The apostle Paul is a good example of the LORD’S power to transform an unrighteous man or woman into an image-bearer of YESHUA. Paul was deeply religious before his conversion! When he met the LORD on the road to Damascus, the future apostle learned that all his religious zeal meant nothing. The only way for people to be acceptable before GOD is to receive the saving grace of MESSIAH YESHUA—He replaces our sin nature with a righteous spirit!

Romans 8:30
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and who He justified, these He also glorified.

Paul was welcomed into the Kingdom in spite of his hostility toward the body of believers! (promoting blasphemy and punished believers). No one is beyond the LORD’S capacity to forgive. His grace is sufficient  (such amazing grace)!
