We are Born Again With A Purpose In Christ!

We are Born Again To Forgive, By Karen Rowe


We are Born Again To Forgive!


In our learning, we are still learning.  It never gets stale; and we are eager to learn more and more about this extraordinary life that Jesus laid down His Life for us to Have and that He was raised up in this same Spirit of Life He gives!
We learn from each other, from our Friends and Loved Ones and from stories a long time ago.
We have a love for people.
I am a Christian.  You may be a Christian too?  Sometimes the saved wrong us too; just as the unsaved do things we would never do.
Why would we think about how to treat them?  When they wrong us?  And, when they don’t wrong us?
Why would my behavior change?
Regardless to how I am treated, my behavior won’t change toward you, because I am in Christ.  I have been taught how to act toward you, because I have been born-again.  Jesus has taught me this love!
Now, I have made my mistakes along my training journey, and so have you, but we have a Jesus whom has loved us, because He knew how much God SO loved the world!  Don’t get lost in the enormity of God’s love, because God has loved me and you and every person who has been or will ever be born.  God’s love is very personal and we have some good news for you! God loves you and He has your best interest at heart!
It is not a war to me now, because I know when I mistreat you, I mistreat Jesus.
I have to forgive, because if I don’t, Jesus won’t forgive me.
God loves people so much He gave His Only Begotten Son, because He loved us, while we were still sinners.  That’s a past, present and future love!  God loves you; and we are glad you are here!
We must go the extra mile!
Stop thinking [Stop holding a grudge]; Let it go – Be Blessed!
God’s people can’t hold un-forgiveness in them, because we know the power of His forgiveness!
I treat everyone sincere; our approach may be different, but no hold of bitterness, nor of hate.  I know the power of love.
We are different, because we are Born-Again.
We are Born to Forgive!
Before we can – We ask God, I am sorry for my sin and ask for His forgiveness.
Then, He entrusts us with His love and Forgiveness too!  He trusts us!
Then, we should trust him enough to know His work is not in vain.
Then, we are born-again!
The Christian life begins in forgiveness!
Jesus said, I am leaving you in charge.  You have been given forgiveness.  Forgive them Father they know not what they do.  So must we.
We have a Happy Easter Story!
Jesus is Alive!!!
Yet, Jesus didn’t take the stone away.  He could walk right through it!  The angels took the stone away!  The angels took the stone away SO THAT we could see *there was evidence that Jesus was there; and to see THAT He was not there … He is Risen!
But Jesus does take our stone away!  From our hearts and from our minds … So that we can see the love God has for us!  …to receive this amazing gift of God’s love and forgiveness! So our hearts can receive this life He died and rose again to give you!  God wants most for you to receive His free gift!  His Grace!  His Mercy!  His Love!  His Forgiveness!
This love God has for us is not like the world’s way of seeing things!  You may think you don’t deserve His love – Cancel that out, because Jesus died while you were still a sinner!
It is a Miracle!
We don’t die to be saved!  Jesus died for us to be saved!  We can’t make ourselves worthy of new life; or worthy of help to change.  Jesus makes us right with God!  We can’t change our human nature alone; and God knew that and Jesus knows that well.  Jesus asked the Father and God sent us the Holy Spirit to help us and keep us straight!
Don’t overthink.  Jesus is our Salvation; and we are to work out our own Salvation Daily with the help of God’s Holy Spirit in our new and reborn life in Jesus the Christ.  Jesus is the Resurrection; we simply believe, confess and receive.  See?  We are still learning day by day.  If God gave us all our understanding of his thoughts and love and devotion of all He knows we need to know at one time, it would blow us up.  Truly, it would blow our minds up.  God gives us all we need day by day and hour by hour and week by week, and month by month and year by year and suffering through suffering to see how much we can trust in our loving Father and God.
You see, Romans 5:8 says that God demonstrated his own love for us in this … while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!
There is a huge story to unfold, but by the time we get to tomorrow, we will be prepared in each Today!  Meanwhile, thank you for joining us and just believe in the love God has for you!
This is the Happy Easter Story!  Jesus is Alive!   Make it personal!  Make Jesus yours!  Jesus already chose you; just say yes, Lord, I am listening!  I am Yours!
Glory Hallelujah!   If you just confessed Jesus, as Your Lord!  I am shouting already before you even read this!  The angels are celebrating too!
This is the Verse Today!


We are Born Again To Forgive!

It wasn’t easy for Jesus, but it was vital!

It want’s easy for Jesus, but Jesus volunteered!

Resurrection means that God loved His Son; and Jesus volunteered, because God so loved the world – every sinner needs to come to Repentance.  Jesus made is possible for us!

There is so much to learn!  But we all begin with one simple word; Believe … confess; and nothing is simple until understanding comes!  That’s why the believe part is the 1st Miracle of Grace!   And the rest is up to our faith!

GROW in Grace.  And, always remember, we are Born Again to Forgive, because we have received God’s Forgiveness personally … God’s will is Done!

I had more, but really believe this is what God wants written to you Today.

It is not an accident you are reading this.  God placed his thoughts for you on my heart so much so, I had to stay and write this to you!

God loves you!  He wants to be your Father.  Jesus has restored that relationship.

Please tell God you believe; God already knows your heart wants to; will you just do this one thing for God after all Jesus has done for you?

Love in Christ,

Karen; God gave us a Ministry and named it Hope in Today.

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




Praise God – For we are ever-increasing in HIS power and in His knowledge that is of God!


” For God

hath not given us the spirit of fear;

but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. “


Thru and By Jesus,
God has given us the Holy Spirit OF His Mind … A Sound Mind is HIS Mind, which translates to Self-Control & Self-Disclipline!       .  .  .  .   Is this good for you Today?


Obedience to God IN Faith in & of The 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 a POWERFUL Name! & 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).”

Thank you Jesus for this Revelation?  I pray in Jesus Name for you to Receive in Christ the life Jesus was Risen to Give you!  Do you want to be made well?  what did Jesus say to the man who wanted to be made well?



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 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.



Repent is a beautiful word!  It means letting go of condemnation & turning to walk with God In Jesus Name.

*We can’t get to where God is taking us if we wont’ let go of what is in one hand to follow Jesus with both hands ready to receive the life and blessings that are found in our relationship with God the Father through and by Jesus, the Son of God:  Jesus truly is the Christ, the Son of the Living God!  This is my Testimony, but by me telling you what Jesus does for me, this gives God permission to do it again in your life!


Can I say give God permission?  Sure!  As a parent is waiting on a child to believe enought to obey … to come into a trusting obedience:  yes, this response to God in Believing in Whom God is activates our believing Faith for God to do it again!  God is waiting on us to move from point A to point B!


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)

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.
