A Word Made Flesh Chap Oscar's New Book

NASHVILLE,TN Chap Oscar's Holiday and Gratitude Message I have come to realize that Our Universe is keyed for love. We have not been promised a smooth voyage, but God does promise us a safe landing. In the Book of Ruth, Naomi says, ‘I went out full, and I’ve come back empty, that’s the story of life. It’s also the story of teaching and preaching in the real world; we must keep ourselves full so we can empty ourselves every single day. Love is the word of selfless kindliness, real love is nobler and higher than other concerns. It goes on, despite barriers, doing its work, bearing its load, climbing its hill, and carrying its cross. It does not look for what it can get but for what it can give. This kind of selfless, seeking goodwill is the essential element of good character. Love is the heartbeat of the Eternal. You know we can trust this kind of love because it is lasting, rugged, and endures the test. Love is tough, determined, discerning, and undiscourageable. Loves causes us to love anyhow! It can suffer a long time. Love is not competitive. It does not envy another. Love has no illusions and lives in no fool’s paradise. Love does not care about our past, but embraces us as we are. The love of which I speak is humble; it is not puffed up. This kind of love is not ugly and aggressive; it does not behave itself unseemly. You cannot upset it; it is not easily provoked. In sickness and sorrow, in pain and privations, love never fails. Love defines the basic structure of the universe. Doubtless, various levels of reality exist but at the bedrock of reality is this goodness; there is a mercy that is all based on love. Love is the essence of what holds creation together. Cast away the wonders, energies, and powers of this world at the bottom of things. At the heart of it all exists the great secret: Love. My New Book "A Word Made Flesh" shares from cover to cover 100% of the love John demonstrated so well in the Bible. It is this kind of love that must find expression in the world.. Love stays on when everything else has left. Love abides! It keeps its vigil around sickbeds and slips through the bars of prison cells. Love stays on! It defies shame and disdains disgrace and believes in us anyhow. It bears pain and endures sorrow, and climbs dark hills. Love lasts when death is passed and the night is come. Love abides, when life has fled and the pulse is stilled, and our homes are empty. This love is hard to march up to, but it demands that we come up to the hard, crippling facts of life, with deep confidence that this love will never let us go. Even beyond all other considerations we dare to believe that this kind of love is the test of life. I was sharing with Marsha last night at Starbucks in Hermitage, TN how precious the Staff is and how they actually greet everyone with a special willingness to serve each and every coffee with love. We love you Christine! Love: Our new-world optimism. Love is not the sugary, sentimental, soft thing of which we think when the word “ love” is uttered. Even when we accept the meaning of the word, we are likely to believe that our commitment to love one another is private and individual: a cup of cold water to those who thirst, and a piece of bread to those who hunger, one by one as we have opportunity. To love one another does involve our personal relations vitally and inescapably, for gift without the giver is bare. Love outlasts the acids of change and the corrosion of time. Love stands straight and secure midst the storms and floods in which other virtues have shaken and stopped and succumbed. Love is a great quality; it gives purpose to the lives of people and declares to them that there is a land where their worthiest beliefs are brought to pass. Love gives luster to tomorrow and fills the future with promise. Love will keep a person marching when strength is gone. Love is a stubborn thing. Love is perhaps the most persistent thing on Earth. Thank God for my wonderful Aunt Eunice and our families on both sides. This is truly Marsha's favorite time of year. Love shoulders up its load and keeps on climbing, though the ascent is steep and dizzying. I say this with an admiration for the believing stubborn quality of love. Congratulations Cousin Paul and Veronica and PJ on your new home in South Carolina. Congratulations Big Daddy Luke and Sweet Momma Becky on your new home and land for the horses in Illinois. Now we all know that the love of a mother will put tears of great sorrow in her eyes and immeasurable joy in her heart when she sees us come and when she sees us go. RIP to our Mothers and Fathers, and all the great Mothers and Fathers of our friends as well who have gone too soon. We must be able to see love on a human level. Love will make parents hold on to their children through all kinds of shame and rebuffs. EJ and Henry we love and pray for each of you every day. Love will propel busy and modern people out of graves where even the lettering on tombstones have been almost erased by the ravages of the passing years of storms and sun. Love gives in memory and abides in the hearts of those who are touched. May You Have a Peaceful Holiday, and a Awesome New Year Chap@ChapOscar.com Listen to Ted Ciuba www.ThinkRichRadio.com Chap Oscar, Co-Host every week. Thank you www.JoyceBarrieandFriends.com
