Who did the killing?
If you and I really believed that Christ died because of our sins would we ever purposefully sin again?
Does what I think matter?
Are you willing to work to become the man God made you to be, or are you just going to wish God was different?
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 6:1
Ever try reconciling the above? Seems, at least at first glance, that they contradict one another. The best I can figure out the first is about our lifestyle, the second is about our financial choice.
But those are my marching orders
What are you doing to make your light shine brighter?
You can give without loving, but not love without giving.
Who does that?
God’s love is radical, His generosity is incomprehensible so I must be generous, not just with other Christians but with
those that are hostile. After all His love was radical, so I need to be as well.
Saying I am going to and actually doing it are two different things
One of the guys at my church has a tendency to be a bit aggressive, at least for my taste, when it comes to talking about Jesus to people outside the church. Am I being overly sensitive? Too timid? Maybe his approach is needed more, but I think for me if I did not know Jesus I would be turned off by his way of doing things.
but I am wondering what you think.
I can barely fathom it.
Notice I didn’t say like.
Our command, our marching orders are to love. Not because it’s easy, or even fun, but that’s the Christian ethic. Sometimes we have to love people we may not even like very much. We are not told to revolt, rebelling against the rightfully, God established government. Neither are we to collaborate, trying to reach some weak-kneed compromise. And don’t even think about withdrawing, if Jesus wouldn’t pray that we be taken out of the world, then why would we ever think that’s the best answer.
Love isn’t compromise
Not easy doesn’t mean hard.
