How Committed Are You To Love?  By Karen Rowe

It is God who works in you that you will want to do God's will to love and forgive others, so that they too will be saved by His Grace. All glory to God! Thank you Jesus for this Revelation!

My Dear Friends In Christ,

I sincerely hope this finds you well; and with the strength to get through all things well.  Jesus tells us; and we can find it written in John 16:33, that He (Jesus) spoke these things to us that in Christ Jesus we might have peace, which means Jesus made Peace possible!  Jesus continues by saying to us that in the world, we will have tribulation:  but be of good cheer … Will you agree with Jesus and come into unity in Christ with me? … As I truly and completely believe you will agree with Jesus too, when He finishes up this statement about troubles with HOPE in Jesus!  “But be of good cheer; I (Christ Jesus) have overcome the world.”

It is God who works in you that you will want to do God’s will to love and forgive others, so that they too will be saved by His Grace. All glory to God! Thank you Jesus for this Revelation!

Can I share something about our coffee maker with you?  … that to me, I believe the Lord is showing us that Jesus can paint a picture anywhere for us to see how much God loves us.  And, with a message, God is not mad at you.  Don’t give up before you get there!

Where is there?  The Assurance of Peace & Blessed by the Sacrifice of Love for Love!

You see, when we 1st believe in Jesus, we are made to be God’s little children.  What does this mean to you?  Well, to me, if you will allow Jesus to talk through me, we believe!  And, like little children need to learn, so must we all be trained in how to proceed in this love God gave us through and by Jesus.  Love & Forgiveness is made possible through and by Jesus!  And, love and forgiveness work hand in hand with God!  And, we give because we are blessed with love and forgiveness to give by this same power of Love and Forgiveness; that is of God and by His Grace and through and by this great name, Jesus who is the Christ.

You may not even be aware of what God already knows that you may have some unforgiveness in your heart.  But God will help you; and keep you from stumbling!  He Promises! And, I testify for the glory of our Saviour!  The Bible says to work out your own Salvation … Now that Salvation has come!  Believe and keep Believing!  May all you do and say show to the world that you believe!  May we see the Salvation of the Lord working in your situations!!!!  Oh Thank you Jesus!!!   The Power of God’s Holy Spirit Love in the Name of Jesus!


Well, we have a new coffee maker too!  Coffee is possible, thru and by this new coffee maker, but goodness and mercy is required!  Who knew all the impossible troubles we would both experience just by learning how to work this new coffee maker!  We love coffee, so we keep on trying; but inevitably we have more and more to learn – – – about what NOT to do!


Friends, we love Jesus too; right?  And, God’s love for us is so great and rich in Goodness and Mercy, but what happens when we face troubles we never saw coming … and even though we may very well know about making coffee; there is just something going on that we need to know about this NEW WAY!  The same as with walking and abiding in the love God has for us!  We must learn what God is wanting us so much to know about what is this love God calls us to … To be free in and to love others in, just as Jesus has so well loved us!

The other thing about this new coffee maker, it is our only way to make coffee … our only coffee maker in the house.  Oh sure, we could go buy another coffee maker, but that would mess up this picture of Jesus is the ONLY Way; the ONLY TRUTH; and the ONLY LIFE!  LIfe is with God; and we are called to first come & also to Abide in this love when we come to know and believe in the love God has for us!   And, friends, when we see Jesus is our only Saviour in our heart, we will want to stick close to Jesus & exude God’s love too!  God does this work in our heart too!


Isn’t God good!!!


Go there With Jesus

give a hug of love in Jesus Name

and ask for forgiveness

*** Proactive LOVE!

Will pride get in your way?  Will time / busy schedules get in your way?  Will hurt feelings get in your way?   Is there anything you are not willing to sacrifice for the love of Jesus to do the will of God; and extend love and forgiveness to others God loves too?  We are talking PURE here.  There is absolutely Nothing impure about the love of Jesus!   Will you give a hug of love in Jesus Name and ask for forgiveness and say, IF …EVEN IF I HAVE DONE ANYTHING TO HURT YOU, PLEASE FORGIVE ME??? (even IF you might feel & think you were entitled to an apology)?  That’s your Soul (what you think, feel and want to) saved by Jesus to do God’s Will.  We are talking about the power of the Holy Spirit in us when Jesus enters our heart!  Dear Friends, this is it!!!!

If you are not willing?  To LOOK at your own heart? – God is about to set you FREE from something you weren’t fully aware of!  Forgiveness is in the Heart of God!!!  Are you willing to entertain excuses?  I hope not, because what ALL God has waiting for you, and the other person(s) surrounding you, is extraordinary and blessed FAR beyond human comprehension!

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom; and the knowledge of the Holy    IS  UNDERSTANDING!


of the Holy


The Holy Spirit is impressing on my heart, as it is He who is writing to you that God doesn’t want you to give up!  Just because it is difficult, Jesus wants you to focus on HIM!

There is a love that is perfect and HE IS GOD!  We are imperfect, but God’s Perfect Love is the demonstration of how good God’s love is for us!   His love for, with & in us is Patient and Kind; and flawless in reality!  Yet, you may think, “what next?”  Or, you may be tempted to give up?  Or, perhaps you just feel pressure to do what you don’t want to do?

God gets that!  But God is willing to help us!  There is a higher place God is calling us to know about!  This is the Place of God’s unconditional love!

This is the Place

of God’s unconditional love!

Now, I turned my back for a minute making coffee this morning!  I seriously thought I had it figured out; as to how not to make any of the same mistakes we have been amazed with.  And, I am not kidding when I say, we have both been tempted to toss this coffee maker to the curb, but there is something bigger God wants us to see than just this silly coffee maker.

something bigger God wants us to see than just this silly coffee maker.

It has been teaching us the power of patience with human error!  The coffee maker remains the same!  In fact, it is so simple, we have made it to be ridiculously complicated!  Humm… am I painting this picture yet?  That nothing is simple until understanding comes?  Jesus loves us, but the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.  And, ever still, we need to continue growing in our knowledge of God’s grand love for the world, and as we continue to be abiding in the Name of Jesus!

It has been teaching us the power of patience with human error!

Drink and never thirst again, but at the well is where we need to dwell!

So, as the coffee overflowed today, when I saw it, I thought what now?  The Cup was full and moving the cup spilled over to burn my fingers; but just like God gives us a new method ….  Why did the coffee overflow today?  I couldn’t SEE what was already in the cup!


YUM!  God’s Word is so Good to me!  I couldn’t see what was already in the cup!  SEE!  God sees what is already in our heart!  We can’t see it until God reveals it!  Many times, it takes adversity to see …

Is this good for you?  It sure is good to me! Thank you Jesus for this revelation.


So God has presented to the world A new method?  LOVE in CHRIST.   Just like I had to have this new coffee maker, we must first be born again to have the New Spirit of LIFE in Christ.  And, sure, troubles will come, but it will be of a different kind & with a different method.

You see, God is showing me that we are meant to WIN!  We are meant to win.  The Bible even says to Press toward the Prize!   And, so God has given us  in Christ, A new method to love others well!!!

Oh friends, please get this!

When you receive this, you will never be the same!

Jesus makes Perfect Love Possible!

Forgiveness doesn’t work like we are taught by human standards!

Love covers a multitude of sins!

It is a MIRACLE!  It is a Gift!

Don’t wait for someone to repent to show them love and understanding; because I am sure you can name at least one thing, God loved you well, before understanding come to you to Repent.  Love covers a multitude of sins!  It is a MIRACLE!  It is a Gift!  Ask Jesus to Unwrap your heart to Hear God; and use the gift of Love that God has implanted (or is willing to plant) in your heart to flow to others … JUST like Jesus flowed (or will flow) love into your heart from God.  Love is from God.

Now, this final thing, I believe that the Lord wants me to tell you that you will perhaps just jump for joy in this deeper thing, God is doing in all our lives, because this is a brand new day!  God is teaching us deeper still!  We have only learned the basics of this love of Jesus!  Now, we can learn how to walk and talk in this love God has for the world!

You, my friend, are (can be in Christ), the Light OF the love of God, whom Jesus resides in!

the Light OF the love of God

Okay, like this!  Jesus was in the boat with them (Mark 4:36, KJV)!  Jesus is in you & with you too!  Glory be to God!  Are you getting this from God right now as even I am as I am typing as fast as I can hear from God speak to us all!

God for you!  God with you!  God in You!

And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

Mark 4:36, KJV

They took Jesus even as He was …. Are you tired?  Exhausted?  Jesus was!  He had been teaching crowds all day.  They took Jesus as He was; and Jesus slept on the boat because He was tired!  Dear Friends, Jesus goes with you in your heart in this day; just as He was in that boat too in that day!  Is Jesus resting in your heart?  Are you tired like Jesus was?  Then, Go there!  Who is resting in you?  J E S U S !  Call on Jesus and DO whatever Jesus tells you to do!

J E S U S !

Call on Jesus

and DO

whatever Jesus tells you to do!

Glory Hallelujah!  Thank you Jesus for this Revelation!  And, To God be the Glory.

How Committed Are You To Love?  By Karen Rowe

God is certainly not mad at you! We are imperfect in love, but God is! + training us! We mess up & God picks us up! It all adds up! Who are the little children written about in Mt 18? The Spirit of the Lord opened my eyes to see that the little children Jesus is pointing out for us to understand is every Child of God! Including you & those who offend you! Those who believe in Jesus! Goodness! Listen to Mt 18 read aloud to you this day! Who did Jesus say is greatest? HUMBLE YOURSELF LIKE A LITTLE CHILD! Go there & dive deep into the well of forgiveness! It is not the will of God that one of these little children should perish! Vs 12 & 14! Jesus come to save that which WAS lost! Go there! Don't be offended! Dispise NOT little ones who believe in Jesus! This is not an age thing! This is a new life in Christ commandment! To love who? Enemy[Mt 5]?Conditioned on what? The Christ! Friends, living before the face of God, Make LOVE a priority THIS DAY! Refuse to set aside the love of the Father in Heaven for a dead idol. 🚶‍♂️ Walk away from death 💀 motivated by the flesh to win an argument. Walk 🚶‍♂️ to life in Christ motivated by love! Is it more important to be right? Or to seek to treat that person with love, no matter what is going on? Hold on! Go there to the servant who was forgiven of all debt & then violently cast his fellow in jail for a debt less than his own. Jesus paid it all my friends! That is the big one we can't repay! But that fellow servant? Goodness, he must have really disliked that 👦 guy! But what does Jesus teach us about love covering a multitude of sins? Love is the power to release others from what they can't control! See? The Spirit of control seems to be controlling the 🌎 world with deception, but God is really in control! They just think they are, but they are not. They are being controlled by the 😈 demon spirits. But God is love & THE Holy Spirit 😍 is more poweful than any demonic spirit. See why? The power of LOVE! Luke 4:18 & Is 61:1. Love is spiritual! God is Love! What can we learn from Mt 18? Everything about Jesus & forgiveness 🙏 & honor & what is Praise to God. Go also to Ps 119.

We need each other to get to where God calls us to go!





Jesus peers before us, so He already knows … Faith in Christ is where all blessings from God are discovered! Follow Jesus and Trust in God. There is no fear in Love, but perfect love drives out fear. That’s why there is a calm that comes over you when you hear the Word of God preached. And that is why fear creeps in AT you when you hear the media preach. JESUS calms the storms and there is no mountain Satan can build high enough that faith IN CHRIST can’t tear down. Jesus is the name above all names.



BUT LET a man EXAMINE himself,

AND SO LET him eat OF THAT bread,

and drink OF THAT cup.
1 Corinthians 11:28 KJV

FOR THIS CAUSE many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
1 Corinthians 11:30 KJV



And, Always Remember 2 Things!  No, Today, God gave me 3 things:

1.  When you receive this, you will never be the same!

2.  God for us.  God with us.  God in us. 

3.  Always Remember to come to ME (God, the Father, through and by Jesus) Before you go head on.

How do you find out How much God loves you?  How do you get from Point A to Point B?





Point A *Must Repent

Point B *Beginning of Being Born Again.

Step 1:  Being Born Again.

1st Step:  Repent.

1st Step to Being Born Again, Repent!  For the Kingdom of God is near to you!  Lord, I receive this!  I will never be the same!  The Kingdom of God is NOW!  Repent and Be Born Again to LIVE and Be set FREE from the law of sin and death (Pride and Selfish Ambition).

Believing on Jesus, 


After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)

Next articleHow many are your works, LORD!
Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
