What Love Does?


The word love always trends on twitter. It is used every second of the day. A word that has been abused more than any word in the English language. Everyone uses the word. Whether you believe in its origin in God or not, people use the word and for many, its so fluid, that its weight has little value when said. Love has been reduced in many cases to lust.

People use the word to manipulate people. People use the word out of a genuine heart felt response based upon how someone makes them feel. No matter why you are using the word its power is not absolute.

While love is powerful and the very essence of God, it is not sufficient enough to make the most evil person repent and give their life to Jesus. The hearts of many are so cold that love or fear will not save them. They are simply doomed. Never forget that Jesus was the epitome of love and yet he was stilled murdered by people He asked God the Father to forgive. It is this understanding that I want you to keep, when you hear people try to use Jesus loves you as a tactic to bring someone into fellowship with Jesus.

Love doesn’t bring a person in. Its revelation. The ability to have the self awareness of ones sin will bring them into fellowship with Jesus, when they seek an answer for it. Jesus will always become the only solution for the dilemma. Christians are called to be salt and light. Not love and love. The salt means we are delightful people. Good people that may be trusted and the light is the revelation.

He who wins souls is wise. Fear is the beginning, but love is the sustainer. What does a person fear? There soul lost because of sin. When they believe, love will carry them through the trials and the tribulation. Fear is the beginning of wisdom. Fear is the beginning of knowledge. Love is afterward. It is the everlasting sustainer.

 

WHO IS GOD?

Gods-Spirit-Is-In-You
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth (Psalm 145:18). The LORD is far from the wicked but he hears the prayer of the righteous (Proverbs 15:29). God creates and God destroys. He loves and is angry at the wicked everyday. God sends judgment and shows mercy. He controls everything and is the creator of all that is seen.

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).

Communication

Only let your conversation be worthy of the gospel of Christ; Philippians 1:27

You may or may not be aware that the PG-13 ratings, on movies, continue to slip downward with more and more curse words allowed. You may have seen Donald Trump use the F-word in his speeches and the crowd goes wild. You may have heard that the Brooklyn Public Library allows porn to be viewed on the computers, allowing those who pass by the ability to view it. You may have seen the increase of bleeps on regular cable TV, not including specialty channels like Showtime or HBO. This may or may not bother you, but if you love Jesus and desire peace and salvation for the lost it will.

Decay is a process over time that removes the integrity of its object. Christians can decay when we allow the decay to contact us. We allow the decay to contact us when our conversation reflects the world around us and not the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you call yourself a Christian and use curse words how do you justify the verse above? If you call yourself a Christian and tear others down and do not edify your family, friends, neighbor and enemies how do you justify the verse above? If this verse does not affect you at all why do you call yourself a Christian?

The world often accuses Christians of being hypocrites, but are those who are lost (Bible is not their guide), hypocrites calling themselves Christians when they are not?
