Do you LOVE Me?

“A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep” John 21:17, NLT.

After Peter denied ever knowing Jesus, he was feeling really down and depressed. However, notice Jesus’ response. He didn’t shake Peter violently and say, “Don’t you know how much I love you!” Instead, He asked him three times, “Do you love Me?” Each time Peter responded with an emphatic, “Yes Lord, I love you!”


When a sister in Christ falls into sin, so often we try to remind her of how much God loves her. Maybe we assume she’s forgotten. Truth is, we know God loves us, what we have trouble remembering is how much we love Him—especially when we’ve fallen. The enemy speaks loudly in our ears, “If you really loved God you wouldn’t have done what you did! You don’t really love Him like you say you do! Look at you!” So imagine what happens when we follow the example of Jesus, and remind our sister that she does love God. It will silence the enemy and set her free to live again!

No matter what you did, deep in your heart there’s a love for God that still remains. And because you love Him, you will obey Him. Because you love Him, you will honor Him with your life.You’ll be just like Peter who was later used by God to win thousands of people to the Lord. You too will be used mightily by God and He will be glorified in your life!


Say from your heart today, “Jesus, I love you. I don’t care what the devil is saying, and I don’t care how I feel, I love you, and I’m sorry for everything. I receive your forgiveness, and I ask that you heal and restore me. Rescue me from this pit and use me for your glory. In your name I pray, Amen.”

The Deception

Adam sinned, got condemned, and was driven from the garden of Eden by God. The redemptive robe over him proved that (the issue of being naked).

Adam sinned wilfully. Eve was actually deceived. But Adam was not deceived. He deliberately sinned; knowing what he was doing, because of his wife. He took position with his wife.

Then they went before God and both of them was condemned.

And Jesus, not ignorant of what He was doing, came down, and took His place with the sinner, the Church, that He might redeem the Church back to Himself. It was a type.

Adam was first and Christ is the second Adam. Where through first Adam all die; through second Adam all live.

Adam did sin. But he did it with his eyes wide open.

In Timothy 3 it said that Adam was not deceived. But the woman, being deceived, was in the transgression.Serpent
Eve actually thought she was right. But Satan deceived her. But he didn’t deceive Adam. He knew it was wrong.

But because of the love for his wife, he represented himself with sin and was condemned by the same. And cast out of the garden of Eden.

And Christ represented Himself with the Church full of sin, and was condemned, and His soul went to hell. And God raised Him up on the third day.

God wouldn’t have sent Him to hell pure. He had to send Him to hell condemned (Do you see it?), because He took our sins.

And Christ died, not righteous; Christ died a sinner. Christ never sinned Himself, but He took our sins on Him.

Why Angry?

The man that was possessed by the legion of demons was so completely yielded to the devil, till the devil used his tongue to talk.

Someone can be so completely yielded to God till God can use his tongue to talk.

He was so possessed of that evil spirit, and that spirit had him so close till those demons knew their time had come, because they had met Perfect Love. And they said, “We’ll try him, We know who you are. Why you in that little bitty body like this, little frail-looking fella?” Said, “Why are you coming like that?” Said, “We know who you are. You’re the Holy One of Israel, and why do you…?” (Now watch! If you don’t believe that there’s a future torment for devils, listen to these confess it.) “Why comest thou to torment us before the time comes?” They know there’s a future torment. “Why comest thou to torment us before the time comes?” Do you see it?

And Jesus said, “What’s your name?” He knew; He wanted them to confess it.

Said, “We’re Legion, for there’s many of us.”


A little frail fellow like Jesus standing there, and a man that could whip almost an army; chains couldn’t even hold him. This proves that it isn’t physical strength. That isn’t what counts. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit that’s in your life that counts.

He said, “Don’t torment us before the time comes; but if you’ll cast us out (Look at the meaness of them, the wickedness.) If you are going to cast us out, don’t let us just go free out into the world, ’cause hard tell where we’ll get into somebody else. If you’ll cast us out - We want to be in somebody; we want to do something; we want to do some more meanness.” That’s the devil. “I’ll get back with him. Hmm!” That’s the devil. “I’ll get even with him.” Just remember, it’s your brother standing there, but the devil got on him. “Let us do something mean. We can make these Gadarenes over here suffer for this,” might have said the head, one of them. Said, “Let us go down in that herd of swine.”

Jesus said, “Take your leave. But come out of him!” Oh, my! Little bitty guy like that speaking to that big legion of devils. “Come out of him! You have your leave.” And they got into those hogs, and they had fits, run them hogs into fits.

And down the way they went to the river, and drowned in the river, choked themselves in the river.

Of course the devils went out of them, ’cause it killed the hogs. It just run them into a fit. They had a fit just like anyone. Did you ever see a person have a temper fit? Well, that’s just what it is. That’s just them devils. That’s what happened to them. You ever see one of them having a temper fit, you say, “Uh huh, I know what happened in Gadara now.” That’s just exactly. Just a few more come in there, run him completely insane; ’cause the medical doctor will tell you that temper is the first stage of insanity.

Identify your Target Audience

Finding the right customers for your business is crucial to its success. When you concentrate on the people who are most in need of or interested in your product or service, there is mutual benefit: You allocate your resources to the right efforts, and your customers spend their money on what they actually need. It is important to identify your target audience, so that you can maximize the effectiveness of your marketing. This post will go over the definition of a target audience, and provide some guidelines for identifying and understanding yours.

What is a Target Audience?
A target audience is a specific group of consumers that will be the most receptive to your products, services, and promotions. The specificity of the group is based on factors like age, location, income, and more. For example, if you are a physical therapist, your target audience might be athletes who are recovering from injury; senior citizens looking to maintain mobility; or middle-aged men and women with back pain.

Niche Market vs Target Audience
Niches are smaller and more specific groups within a target audience. While every business should have a target audience, not every business needs to have a niche market. Some businesses find their niche market by actively seeking one out; others stumble upon it naturally. Some niche markets are so lucrative that they become a business’s target audience. Others simply continue to be the group in which a business specializes while at the same time serving their larger target audience.

Why is a Target Audience Important
It is important to have a target audience because the language, channels, and information you use to communicate with and appeal to one demographic may not be as effective with another. Also, you are better off thoroughly meeting all of the needs of one specific group than meeting only some of the needs of a lot of different groups. Having a target audience gives you direction in your marketing, facilitates more consistency in your messaging, and allows you to deepen your connection with your customers.

How to Define Your Target Audience
Defining your target audience allows you to efficiently market to the people you know you can impact. Here are three steps to take that will help you define your target audience.

Identify Problems and Needs
The first step in defining your target audience is to put yourself in your customers’ shoes. Identify what problems and needs they have for which your business is the solution. Think specific needs. Do they need fast service or 24 hour customer support? Do they have kids and need special accommodations? What daily activities do they perform that you can make easier for them?

Profile Your Current Customers
To define your target audience, take a look at your current customers. What do they have in common? Repeat and loyal customers can give you great insight into the types of people you should target. Look at broad and narrow similarities. If your customer base is really diverse, you might need to give your business some more time for patterns to develop. Or, you can segment your customer base into a few different types of customers and do some experimentation to see if you can gather any information.

Observe Your Competition
Another way to define your target audience is to observe your competitors. Scroll through their business website, social media feeds, and identify their best selling products or services. Get a feel for who they are targeting, and see if that demographic fits your business. If it does, you may be able to learn a thing or two about your target audience. If it doesn’t, you can learn how to further distinguish your business from theirs.

Understanding your Target Audience
Identifying your target audience is not the same as understanding it. After all, being an expert in your field doesn’t exactly equate to being an expert on your target audience. It is important to learn as much as possible about your target audience—their lifestyle, habits, preferences, needs, dislikes, favorites, and more—and to constantly be updating that information so that you can provide superior service. Here are two ways to better understand your target audience.

Immerse Yourself
The best way to understand your target audience is to immerse yourself in it. Host and attend events where you can converse and interact with them. Use social media to engage with your customers and followers, familiarize with their jargon, and understand what’s important to them. You can learn a lot about your target audience members not just in how they interact with your business, but also in how they interact with each other and with other businesses.

Look at the Data
Consumers don’t always know what they like. In fact, we may think we have one preference, only to find that our actions are in line with a different preference. This is why you should use Google Analytics or other analytics platforms for your website and marketing activities. Data will identify behavior patterns of your customers and business website visitors. You can see which pages they frequent or which channels they’re coming in. This provides you with a solid understanding of your target audience, that you can preferences, that you can leverage for marketing success.

Identifying your target audience is an essential part of marketing your business. With this knowledge you can connect with the right people, and enhance the quality of those engagements. Start defining and understanding your target audience so that you can make the most of your precious time—and theirs.


Responsive Site Design - Improve Performance and User Experience

Performance is the best way to improve the user experience. Many things shape the experience of users. However, nothing is more likely to drive users away than a poorly performing website.
We like to think of ourselves as guardians of the user experience. Why then, when we talk to clients, do we tend to neglect the non-visual elements that have a profound effect on the experience. Clients love beautiful pictures, and as designers, we do nothing to dissuade them.

In many ways, developers have a greater impact on the user’s experience than we do as designers.
In fact, in many ways, developers have a greater impact on the experience than we do. Look at the role of performance in the user experience. Still, we do not tend to talk about that with clients. We know they will not be interested and we are not willing to put the hard work in to convince them to care. However, we should.

After all a poor website:

  • damages findability
  • increases the time to complete a task
  • reduces user satisfaction
  • endangers accessibility
  • undermines understanding of your products and services.

Improve your Website

Chances are that your website is the most effective sales and marketing tool at your disposal.

A “good” website (one that converts at an impressive rate), will mean more sales and greater brand recognition. If your site has a high bounce rate, where users leave your page after viewing only one page, not only is this costing you sales, but your competition is likely benefiting from it.

Website design is a critical element of any digital marketing strategy. Factors such as landing pages with the proper conversion funnels, a homepage with good messaging, and strong calls-to-action throughout your site is a must. When driving traffic to your website from other platforms, whether social media channels or search engines, you want to make sure that your bringing users to a site that is going to be optimized for a great user-experience, and one that encourages a conversion.

CRO for instance is a “must” for your brand. What is CRO?

Conversion rate optimization (CRO) is the process of making improvements to your website in order to increase the rate at which site visitors take a desired action, such as completing a purchase or filling out a contact form. Conversion optimization can include anything from changing the color of a button, to changing the message on a landing page, to redesigning the hierarchy of a homepage to better match the way a user approaches information-gathering.

Conversion optimization is individualized to every brand. What works and what doesn’t will, for the most part, be specific to each website. However, there are a few tried and true methods for improving conversions that have the potential to be effective for all brands. Let’s take a look at some of these elements, and some brands that truly exemplify these factors:

1. Responsive design

Implementing a responsive design, where the content of your website adapts to fit the device on which it’s viewed, is one of the most powerful changes you can make to your site to improve conversion rate. We all know how ubiquitous mobile phones have become; we’re more and more inseparable from our devices, and our time spent on mobile is growing too.

2. Clear value proposition

When a user comes to your site without knowing too much about your brand, your goal is to convince them quickly that you have the solution to whatever their problem is. It’s common for brands to feel the urge to list all the ways they’re unique and wonderful right there on the homepage. They end up cluttering up the homepage with competing value propositions or information that isn’t really critical for a user to have in the beginning phases of browsing. The problem is that when there are too many things to focus on the user will end up not being able to focus on any of them. Your company’s real value and message will be lost.

The better approach is to write a clear, focused value proposition and feature it front and center on your homepage or landing page. Make this message the hero of the page. If you pair it with a clutter-free design and an arresting image, you’ll stand a better chance of capturing the user’s attention and encouraging him to take the next step.

3. Simplified forms

Nothing is a tedious as filling out a form. This is equally true online as it is in the real world. People hate filling out paperwork, and forms on websites are essentially a form of paperwork. Your website needs to work hard to make sure forms are as simple and easy to complete as possible. Here are a few guidelines for designing forms that convert:

• As much as possible, limit the amount of fields of required information. Don’t lengthen your form needlessly by asking users to provide information that isn’t essential to transacting business with them.

• Use predictive text when it makes sense to do so. Often addresses or locations can be predicted and then auto-filled, limiting the burden on the user to continue typing.

• Provide clear error messages when users fill in fields improperly. Offer visual cues to indicate that an error has been made, and let the user know what they need to do in order to fix the error.

• Align forms vertically in single column layouts so that users can move easily from one field to the next, down the page rather than across.

4. Effective calls-to-action

The call-to-action is one of the most important steps in the path to conversion on your website. It helps guide a user from one step to the next, encouraging and reassuring them that they are on the right track.

Confusing CTAs are bad news for conversion rates. They risk alienating users who are suddenly unsure of what to expect at the next step, or who become convinced that whatever they’re going to find on the other side of that CTA is not what they’re seeking. Generic CTAs can also harm conversions. CTAs like “learn more” and “continue” are simple, but often don’t entice users as much as alternative language could. If it’s possible to be more specific, it’s a good idea to test CTAs that get at the point more directly.

The worst CTAs of all are the ones that users can’t locate because they’re too small or the button color doesn’t pop against the dominant colors of the website. Make sure your CTAs are clearly visible -- users should have no trouble locating them quickly and without searching.

5. Site speed

While not technically a design element, site speed is another factor that has an enormous impact on conversion rate, so it’s worth mentioning here. Users list site speed as the second most important website performance attribute, following ease of navigation:

Users on both desktop and mobile have very low patience for sites that don’t load quickly. You can be confident that they won’t wait around for a slow site to load -- they’ll simply abandon before it ever comes to that. Making your website experience more enjoyable by improving site speed is one of the best ways to guarantee an improvement in your conversion rate.

Improving conversion rates for your brand

Focusing on improving your website’s conversion rate is one of the best investments you can make in your brand’s online success. Small changes can make a huge difference in the way users behave on your site, so it’s important not to neglect the details.
