Can we Ever Love Enough?

We have the only message of hope, we have the only message of power, we have the only message of salvation, and we have the only message of transformation. Can we ever love enough? Are we willing to give our lives; our thing, what we enjoy and stop to tell that man, to tell that woman, to tell that kid: “Jesus loves you, you are not an accident, Jesus has a plan and a purpose for your life, I care about you, if you ever need someone to talk to, I am here for you?”


Can we ever love enough? I see a man standing at the door; he looks like he is ok; a beautiful wife, lovely kids, a nice car and a good eight to five job. He smile, but his smile is empty; is forceful, it is not natural. He looks, but he can’t see anything; he stares at nothing. Day after day he wakes up and follows his routine. He is at the church, sits on the back; he never says enough, never speaks about his life, never shares his insight. We were around him, but did not see him; could not see his pain, could not see that in the mix of such blessings this man was hopeless; the enemy darkened his thoughts and finally got him! The enemy convinced him that it was not worth it to stay. Can we ever love enough? He was among us, but we did not know, now he is gone, too late to ask, too late to care!

 

People of God, we must get personal, for we are in trouble; yes I know, we are busy, I find myself busy to; the kids, the job, the groceries, the bills, the church, the games, the rehearsal and so on. But people are dying and going to hell, people are hopeless all around us! We have the only message of hope, we have the only message of power, we have the only message of salvation, and we have the only message of transformation. Can we ever love enough? Are we willing to give our lives; our thing, what we enjoy and stop to tell that man, to tell that woman, to tell that kid: “Jesus loves you, you are not an accident, Jesus has a plan and a purpose for your life, I care about you, if you ever need someone to talk to, I am here for you?”

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot. In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona.

  1. Great reminder. Matthew 9:36 (NASB)says, “Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd.”

    We need the heart of Jesus! Come on people of God wake up!!!!
