"For by your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned."
Ah yes words.
I was taught growing up that sticks and stones would hurt me but words never could.
What I was taught and what I learned were two different things.
It's important to tear down words and replace it with God's word.
Mindset is just as crucial.
That's why this person says Love God, Love People.
This person knows the power of words.
This person knows God.
After all every one is different.
This person says it again "Love God, Love People"
"Again he said, "what shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade."
Mark 4:30-32 (Parable of Mustard Seed) NIV
This person knows the power of words and the power that is found in mustard seed.
His faith makes mine seem weak.
Allow me to set the stage
He is in an area where there is not a Church every 5 miles.
Not everyone praises God.
Not everyone looks to God.
Many are not saved.
Many have not heard the Gospel for the first time.
He continues his walk and says once again "Love God, Love People."
This person has it.
He is in an area where over 95% of the population are unchurched.
In fact He is a Pastor in an area where they are not many churches.
He is in an area where people are thankful for a church.
I know your probably thinking that this is a remote area. Right? Wrong?
He is in an area that's closer than you might think.
He is in what people consider the greatest country in the World.
You guessed right. The USA.
There are other locations in USA that are like similiar to this.
His favorite saying is Love God, Love People.
Not only does he say it but He lives by it.
That's how the Gospel was spread and is spread today.
"Love God, Love People" is what he says.
I've been blessed to hear him preach.
Will you join me in lifting him up in prayer?

As one of my missionary friends says it will change if only you will pray.
Again he says "Love God, Love People."
My saying is "And Jesus Shed His Blood"
