Welcome to the Greene Street Letters. It has become my venue for sharing what is going on at Vineyard Recovery Church. Don't let the word Church scare you. The Greene Street Letters is a daily posting to simply say that there is more to life than what you see. More to life than "stuff". My simple take of 60+ years of following Jesus. Some days were good days...some days I managed to get off in the ditch. He is worthy of the pursuit, so that is what I do........I pursue Jesus in everything I do. Not the Jesus of the church. Not the Jesus of the denomination. Nothing wrong with those things, but Jesus is so much more. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you return from time to time to stop and ponder your own relationship with Jesus. God on you....mb

I AM

John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend (Overpower) it.


How big is your God today?
Do you truly understand who it is you pray to?
Have you considered who it really is that has reached out to you with a love that is beyond comprehension on this side of heaven?
A being who character and nature is purer than pure. Who cannot look upon sin. Who cannot coexist with sin...has reached out to a species, of His own creation I might add, with a way....a plan....that opens the door for us to reach back to receive Him.

Crystal meth cannot stop His love....
Heroin cannot stop His mercy.....
Alcohol cannot stop His compassion...
No drug every prescribed can keep this God away from reaching out to you.

He is the Lord above everyone who would lay claim to the title of lord.
He is the King above every ruler, authority under heaven who would lay claim to the title of king.
The world is full of opposites.
Day and night...
Hot and cold....
Up and down...
Over and under...
Future and past....
Good and evil....
Sin and redemption....
But God stands alone with no equal...
They are none that are equal to God...His power...His presence...His purity...His plans.
No, my friend, not one....
The devil is not the opposite of God...
To say that the devil is the opposite of God is to say that the devil is equally as powerful as God.
That isn't true....

Understand who it is that has reached out to you...
Understand that you were created in His image...
You don't create God in your image...
Open you heart up today and tell Him..."I want to meet with you!"
God on you..
