A Message Of Appreciation To The Lord, For Sacrificing Himself, For Us, In Agony On The Cross

Dear Lord Jesus:

We come to You in thankfulness today
Appreciating what You did for us
In dying on the cross in our behalf.

We gratefully appreciate this gift
And pray that we may use it worthily
To follow You wherever You may lead.

And in Your holy Name we pray, Amen.






Blessings to you. May God help us all.

The Basic Principles Of Customer Care


Compiled And Edited By Bill McGinnis



FIRST SOME DEFINITIONS, AS USED HERE:

YOU - means you, yourself, the reader of this page, whoever you may be.
YOUR COMPANY - is any organization of which you are a part.
YOUR CUSTOMER - is any person who visits your company, either online
or in person, in order to obtain something from it.
CUSTOMER CARE - is how you treat your customers.


1. TREAT YOUR CUSTOMERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED IN THE SAME
SITUATION
This an application of the "The Golden Rule," our most important guideline
for dealing with other people, which is, "Treat Others As You Would Like
To Be Treated." This is the most important rule in all human
relationships, not just customer relationships. You can apply this rule to
almost any situation, and you will not be far wrong.


*******************************************************

2. LEARN TO SEE AND FEEL FROM YOUR CUSTOMER'S POINT OF VIEW.
You like it when the other person understands your point of view and can
see problems the way you see them. So do the same for your customer. Learn
to see and feel every situation from your customer's point of view. The
ability to do this is called "empathy," and it will help you in all kinds
of human relationships, not just customer relationships.

Learn to "laugh when they laugh and cry when they cry."

NOTE: For more about empathy, you can visit the free Christian Empathy
Training Website at =>
http://www.loveallpeople.org/empathytraininginstitute.html Please be
advised that this website does contain some religious content based on
Progressive Biblical Christianity. Employers should not require their
employees to use this link.


3. SMILE AND BE FRIENDLY.
You like it when people smile at you and behave in a friendly manner. So
do the same to your customers. It is an ancient Chinese proverb, that "the
shop owner must have a friendly face."


4. BE COURTEOUS AND RESPECTFUL
You like it when people are courteous and respectful to you. And you
dislike it when people are discourteous or rude to you. So be courteous
and respectful in all of your dealings with your customers.


5. IF POSSIBLE, LEARN AND REMEMBER YOUR CUSTOMER'S NAME, AND USE IT
FREQUENTLY.
You like it when other people remember and use your name. So do the same
for your customers.


6. DON'T ARGUE.
Arguments are very negative. They poison good human relationships. You
don't like it when someone argues with you. So don't argue with your
customers. And if you see an argument coming, take the appropriate steps
to avoid it before it causes any damage.


7. DON'T CRITICIZE OR EXPRESS DISSATISFACTION WITH YOUR CUSTOMER IN ANY
WAY.
Criticism builds hostility and bad attitudes. Criticism is poison to good
Customer Care. You don't like to be criticized; so don't criticize your
customers. They don't like it, either. And you won't help accomplish
anything good by criticizing. As your mother probably taught you, "If you
can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." But even better:
find something nice to say.



8. GIVE YOUR FULL ATTENTION TO YOUR CUSTOMERS WHEN THEY ARE TALKING.
You like it when people pay full attention to you when you are talking. So
do the same for your customers. Don't be half-trying to do something else,
or playing with your smartphone.


9. WHERE APPROPRIATE, TALK ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMER'S INTERESTS.
You like to have other people talk with you about your interests. So do
the same for them. Find out what things your customer is interested in,
and steer the conversation toward these things.


10. WHERE APPROPRIATE, ADMIT YOU MAY BE WRONG.
This idea is surprisingly powerful and useful!

Here's what to say, whenever there is a question as to a matter of fact:
"Now, I may be wrong about this. I frequently am wrong about things. But
this is the way it appears to me:" (And then state your beliefs.)

By admitting you may be wrong, and by admitting that you frequently are
wrong (You are, you know. We all are.), you encourage the other person to
admit that he, too, may be wrong! Then, with your egos out of the way, you
can both search objectively for the truth!

And if you really are wrong this time, it will be much less embarrassing
for you than if you had been stubbornly insisting that you were totally
right!


11. LET YOUR CUSTOMER DO MOST OF THE TALKING.
You like it when people let you do most of the talking. So do the same for
them. It won't hurt you, and you might learn something.


12. LET YOUR CUSTOMER TALK ABOUT HIMSELF.
You like to talk about yourself, don't you? We all like to talk about
ourselves! But restrain the urge, and let your customer talk about
himself, instead.


13. LET YOUR CUSTOMER TAKE THE CREDIT WHEN GOOD THINGS HAPPEN.
If something has worked out well, don't grab the credit for yourself, even
if you think you deserve it. Give it to your customer. Say, "It couldn't
have happened without you."


14. LET YOUR CUSTOMER SAVE FACE.
The expression "saving face" means to maintain dignity, or not to look
like an idiot or a worthless person. Sometimes people do things which make
them look like an idiot or a worthless person. If you can rescue your
customer in such a situation, and help him maintain his dignity, you have
done a very good thing.

And maybe someone will do the same for you some day, when you need it
most! "As you do, so shall it be done unto you."


15. REMEMBER: WHEN YOU ARE WITH A CUSTOMER, YOU ARE THE COMPANY TO HIM.
Your customer's opinion of your company may be based almost entirely on
his experience with you. So make that a good experience, to the best of
your ability.


16. HOLD YOURSELF TO HIGH AND NOBLE STANDARDS, AND EXPECT THE SAME FROM
OTHERS IN YOUR COMPANY.
People tend to live up to the expectations others have of them. If you
expect a lot from people, they tend to give what you expect. Likewise, if
you expect little from people, that is what they tend to give.
So act honestly yourself, and expect honesty from your co-workers; act
morally yourself, and expect morality from your co-workers; act fairly
yourself, and expect fairness from your co-workers. Be a good example to
them.


17. GO THE EXTRA MILE.
You are pleasantly surprised when other people do more for you than you
had asked or more than you had expected. So do the same for your customer:
"Go the extra mile," to be pleasant and helpful in all respects.

BLESSINGS TO YOU, AND BEST WISHES FOR YOU IN YOUR CUSTOMER CARE.

Yours, Rev. Bill McGinnis

PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIAN ADVISOR

Understanding God's Law

By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Director - Internet Church Of Christ -
LoveAllPeople.org
Search our pages => http://loveallpeople.org/searchallpages.html

The complete Law Of God demands total perfection from us, and it is
impossible for us to fulfill. No mere human has ever fulfilled it, and
none ever will.

The complete Law Of God is more demanding than even the strict Mosaic Law
the Jews tried to follow. One of the very first things Jesus did in His
ministry was to point out that the Law Of Moses was deficient in six
respects:


-------------------------------------------------------

1. He expanded the prohibition against killing (murder), to include a
general prohibition against anger. (See Exodus 20:13, compared to Matthew
5:21-26.)

2. He expanded the prohibition against forbidden acts, to include a
general prohibition against desire to commit forbidden acts. The example
He chose to use was the forbidden act of adultery, but the principle
applies to all forbidden acts: wanting to do it is the same as doing it,
under God's Law. (See Exodus 20:14, compared to Matthew 5:27-30). This is
an impossible standard for mere humans to meet: desiring to sin is the
same thing as actually committing the sin! Who is free of sinful desires?
Nobody!

3. He eliminated easy, non-consensual divorces, in which the husband "put
away" the wife for almost any reason (uncleanness) he wanted. And He
expanded the concept of adultery to include all divorced persons who
remarry. Yes, that's what He said. Read Luke 16:18. We can dance around it
all we like and pretend He said something else. Or we can go through a
phony "annullment" and pretend we weren't really married when we were. But
He said what He said. (See Deuteronomy 24:1, compared to Matthew 5:31-32
and Luke 16:18.)

4. He expanded the prohibition against false oaths, to include a general
prohibition against all oaths. (See Leviticus 19:12, compared to Matthew
5:33-37.)

5. He abolished the Law Of Retaliation, which entitled an offended person
to take vengeance on the offender, "Eye for eye, tooth for tooth . . . "
(See Exodus 21-23-25, compared to Matthew 5:38-40.)

6. He expanded the Law Of Love to include everyone, even enemies. (See
Leviticus 19:18, compared to Matthew 5:43-48.)


----------------------------------------------------

Jesus emphasized the insufficiency of Mosaic law by pointing out that the
Pharisees, who were meticulous keepers of the Law Of Moses, were not
righteous enough for God.


"For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the
scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of
heaven." (Matthew 5:20 RSV)

So what, then, are we to do? If we cannot keep God's Law, how are we ever
going to please Him enough to get into Heaven?
God, in His mercy towards us, has given us The Way to do this: JESUS
CHRIST.

_____________________________________________________________

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no
one comes to the Father, but by me." (John 14:6 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________


If you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord, you are saved from the penalty of
breaking God's Law, which all of us surely break,
_____________________________________________________________

"because, if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and
believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will
be saved." (Romans 10:9 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________


Under the Law, there is no forgiveness of sin without the shedding of
blood, and Jesus shed His blood for us so that we might live. He paid the
penalty of all our sins for us.

Hebrews 9:22 (RSV)

"Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with
blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no
forgiveness of sins."


1 John 1:7 (RSV)

"but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we
have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus
his Son cleanses us from all sin."

Romans 6:23 (RSV)

"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is
eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."


By accepting Jesus Christ as Lord, we have satisfied all the requirements
of God's Law, because Jesus Himself has paid all the penalties for us. We
are then clean and debt-free to God, thanks to Jesus.
From then on, we are bound not by the detailed requirements of God's Law,
which are impossible for us to keep, but by the Law Of Love, which God now
accepts as total fulfillment of His Law. And the Law Of Love is this:
"LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."

_____________________________________________________________

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, "You shall love your
neighbor as yourself." (Galatians 5:14 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________


And who is your neighbor? Your neighbor is everybody else, all other
people, not just people in your own group. This is the meaning of the
Parable Of The Good Samaritan. (See Luke 10:25-37.)
Are we then free to disregard all of the known details of God's Law? Is it
then permissible for us to murder and rape and steal? Of course not,
because all of these things are inconsistent with loving your neighbor as
yourself. Anything which is inconsistent with love is still opposed to
God's will and is thus still a sin for us.

But many details of God's Law no longer apply to us, as long as we have
accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and we love our neighbor (everybody
else) as we love ourselves. Jesus paid the price for our past sins; and
love for neighbor is accepted by God as fulfilling all of His law now and
in the future.

And even if we do sin, God will overlook it as long as we truly love
others as we love ourselves.


Romans 13:9 (RSV)
The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not
kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other
commandment, are summed up in this sentence, "You shall love your
neighbor as yourself."
Romans 13:10 (RSV)
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling
of the law.
James 2:8 (RSV)
If you really fulfil the royal law, according to the scripture,
"You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well.
Proverbs 10:12 (RSV)
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
1 Peter 4:8 (RSV)
Above all hold unfailing your love for one another, since love
covers a multitude of sins.

Some people might say that these teachings are "soft on sin;" that they
teach people to break God's commandments; that I will surely go to Hell
for teaching these things.
In reply, I will say that the Legalists themselves are guilty of throwing
stumbling blocks in the way of people who might otherwise become perfectly
good Christians. How many people are lost to Christ only because they are
taught (incorrectly) that merely thinking about sex is an unacceptable
sin? or that all sexual activity before marriage is a sin? or that
forbidden sexual desires, such as homosexuality, make them unacceptable to
God? How many people are lost to Christ only because they are taught
(incorrectly) that material possessions are evil? How many people are lost
to Christ only because they are taught (incorrectly) that Christ demands
self-denial and mortification of the flesh at all times? How many people
are lost to Christ only because they are taught (incorrectly) that Satan
is in charge of the world and that all worldly things must be avoided?

I rest my case on Galatians 5:14 which states it just as clearly as it can
ever be stated:

_____________________________________________________________

For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, "You shall love your
neighbor as yourself." (Galatians 5:14 RSV)
_____________________________________________________________

If you don't believe this, you don't believe the Bible.
Belief in Christ pays for all your past sins; then with His Holy Spirit in
you and guiding you, love for neighbor covers all sins in the future.

You are free in Jesus Christ, our Lord!

IN SUMMARY:

"For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this:
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." - Galatians 5:14 (KJV)

And who is your neighbor? Everyone is your neighbor!
See => > http://www.loveallpeople.org/pearl-everyoneisyourneighbor.html

So . . . "Love your neighbor as yourself" means "Love all people as
yourself," since everyone is your neighbor.
Therefore, God's One Law for all Mankind must be, "Love All People As
Yourself." Nobody is excluded.


May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.

The Lord's Prayer


Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:9-13

Declaration Of Faith
The Apostles' Creed
This historic affirmation of faith comes to us from the early centuries of
the Christian church.
MP3 audio file at http://www.loveallpeople.org/binaries/apostlescreed.mp3
- free, Public Domain

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit;
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven
And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit;
The holy catholic church; *
The communion of saints;
The forgiveness of sins;
The resurrection of the body;
And the life everlasting.

Amen.


* Note: "catholic church" here means the entire body of
believers in Christ, not just one particular church.




A Blessing To You From St. Paul

EPHESIANS 3:14-21 (KJV)


14
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord
Jesus Christ,
15
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his
glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the
inner man;
17
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye,
being rooted and grounded in love,
18
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the
breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the power that
worketh in us,
21
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout
all ages, world without end. Amen.

Prayer For You
A Prayer To Banish Anger From The Earth
NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I
speak
it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it is the same
as if I were actually praying for you at that moment.
(Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch
them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)




NOTE: This prayer, today, is written as a collective prayer, for all of us
to pray whenever we are moved to do so. Recently on Family Radio,
I heard a missionary in Peru express his belief that the Lord
restrains Himself from acting in human affairs *unless* we pray
for Him to act. If true, this is a stunning concept, and it would
suggest that we should pray more actively for the Lord to intervene
in human affairs, confident that the Holy Spirit will lead us
to pray in a manner consistent with His will.


"A Prayer To Banish Anger From The Earth"

Perhaps there was a time when man did need
A way to pump adrenalin inside,
To get us ready fast to fight or flee,
From animals or enemies at hand.
And if so, maybe anger had its place.

But now it seems that anger is a curse,
Which causes far more harm than it does good.
For rarely do we need to flee from lions,
But often are we harmed by angry men.
And so we pray that You will hear us now,
And grant this new request that now we make:
Please banish, Lord, all anger from the earth:
Just dry it up, and make it blow away,
And let it nevermore come back to us.
We know that You can do this if You wish,
And now we pray You make it come to pass.
Forgive us if we seem to ask too much,
But we, Your children, need this help from You.
In Jesus' name we pray for this, Amen.

An online church is better than no church at all; but it is even better

Benediction

I pray the Lord that He will lead your path
Away from the temptations all around.
I pray that when temptation lingers near,
The Lord will lead you not into its reach.
But if temptation grabs you as you pass,
I pray the Lord that you will struggle free.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.


Blessings to you in Jesus Christ our Lord.

How To Enjoy Other People

By Rev. Bill McGinnis, Pastor - InternetChurchOfChrist.org
Director - LoveAllPeople.org

God Wants Us To Love One Another
http://www.internetchurchofchrist.org/wemustloveoneanother.html


Enjoying Other People Is A Big Part of Loving Them

The common experience of mankind is that if you enjoy someone, it is easy
to love them; but if you do not enjoy them, then it is hard to love them.
So we see that enjoying other people is a big part of loving them.
Therefore, if we want to love other people, it is very helpful -- maybe
necessary -- for us first to be able to enjoy them. So we need to seek and
find enjoyment in other people.

This is not really very difficult to do, once we start to think about it.
Here's how . . .

How To Enjoy Other people
Here are four things to do, which will help you enjoy other people . . .

1. First, set your mind on doing it. Recognize that God wants you to enjoy
other people, not only because He wants you to be able to love them, but
also because He loves you and wants you to have more enjoyment for
yourself! So you have God's complete permission to enjoy other people,
maybe far more than you ever imagined.

2. For every person you encounter, try to find at least one thing about
them which you enjoy. Examples: beautiful face, sweet smile, pretty eyes,
sweet voice, pleasant mannerisms, graceful movements, nice hair,
intelligence, ability with words, ability to fix things, creative
personality, good personality, comforting presence, generosity, ability to
solve problems, personal leadership skills, good sense of style,
attractive body parts, good attitude with children, helpful personality,
good intentions, nice smell, attractive clothing, good attitude with other
people, sincerity, honesty, etc. If you find more enjoyable things about
them, go ahead and list them in your mind.

3. For each thing you enjoy about that person (above), please think of a
complete sentence which expresses your thought. For instance, "I enjoy
watching her smile," or "I enjoy the pleasing sound of his voice." Then
say that sentence out loud, to yourself. Or better yet, tell it to someone
else.

4. If there are things you do not enjoy about that person, do not express
those thoughts in words, because that would make you think about them even
more. But instead, think to yourself one of the following explanations:

"Maybe they can't help it." or

"Maybe they have their own good reasons for being that way." or

"Maybe they don't realize what they are doing."

In other words, give them a good excuse for whatever it is that you do not
enjoy.

If you will do these things, you will be well on your way to developing
your love for others, as well as increasing your own personal enjoyment in
your life.

8. - Practical Christian Life: Day-To-Day Living With The Lord

Exhortation For Today: "Willingly Embrace Whatever God Gives To You"

Excerpt From "Uniformity With God's Will,"
by St. Alphonsus de Ligouri, 1755
Public Domain
"Willingly Embrace Whatever God Gives To You"

Let us not lament if we suffer from some natural defect of body or
mind; from poor memory, slowness of understanding, little ability,
lameness or general bad health. What claim have we, or what obligation
is God under, to give us a more brilliant mind or a more robust body?
Who is ever offered a gift and then lays down the conditions upon
which he will accept it? Let us thank God for what, in his pure
goodness, he has given us and let us be content too with the manner in
which he has given it to us.

Who knows? Perhaps if God had given us greater talent, better health,
a more personable appearance, we might have lost our souls! Great
talent and knowledge have caused many to be puffed up with the idea of
their own importance and, in their pride, they have despised others.
How easily those who have these gifts fall into grave danger to their
salvation! How many on account of physical beauty or robust health
have plunged headlong into a life of debauchery! How many, on the
contrary, who, by reason of poverty, infirmity or physical deformity,
have become saints and have saved their souls, who, given health,
wealth or physical attractiveness had else lost their souls! Let us
then be content with what God has given us. "But one thing is
necessary," and it is not beauty, not health, not talent. It is the
salvation of our immortal souls.

It is especially necessary that we be resigned in corporal
infirmities. We should willingly embrace them in the manner and for
the length of time that God wills. We ought to make use of the
ordinary remedies in time of sickness -- such is God's will; but if
they are not effective, let us unite ourselves to God's will and this
will be better for us than would be our restoration to health. Let us
say: "Lord, I wish neither to be well nor to remain sick; I want only
what thou wilt." Certainly, it is more virtuous not to repine in times
of painful illness; still and all, when our sufferings are excessive,
it is not wrong to let our friends know what we are enduring, and also
to ask God to free us from our sufferings. Let it be understood,
however, that the sufferings here referred to are actually excessive.
It often happens that some, on the occasion of a slight illness, or
even a slight indisposition, want the whole world to stand still and
sympathize with them in their illnesses.

But where it is a case of real suffering, we have the example of our
Lord, who, at the approach of his bitter passion, made known his state
of soul to his disciples, saying: "My soul is sorrowful even unto
death" and besought his eternal Father to deliver him from it:
"Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from me." But our
Lord likewise taught us what we should do when we have made such a
petition, when he added: "Nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou
wilt."

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS - by Joseph M. Scriven, 1855
- Public Domain

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear;
What a privilege to carry
Ev'rything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear.
Just because we do not carry
Ev'rything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our ev'ry weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He'll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Amen.
