“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” – Colossians 3:23
If this then that.
Or if ? then?
For only with a moral law giver then there can be a moral law.
Working thru some things at the weekly men’s breakfast, the idea of God’s wrath came up. We were looking at the fact that God is unchanging, and a couple of the guys who are newer to being disciples of Christ were asking about the God of the Old Testament vs. the God of the New Testament. They had been given the idea that God pre the incarnation of Christ was mean, and punished and was full of wrath. But now, since the life of Jesus, God is love. Kind, loving, gentle, God is now different.
How can God be Loving and Wrathful?
Doesn’t seem to me God’s Wrath is gone
Who am I to expect more?
What is the right perspective?
Does God love man?
If you had it all, would you share freely?
I wonder if the Amish are on to something? Are they right to send the young men out into the world. By forcing them to make their beliefs system their own, nobody can then take it away from them. What they claim to believe isn’t just because of what their parents, friends, or family believe, but they are forced to make a choice. To either accept or reject the beliefs that they have been raised with.
Or is someone else’s belief enough?
Until it is your own it will not fit.
Unlike Jerry McGuire the only thing that completes me is God.
“We should not pray that God is on our side, but rather that we are on His.” Abraham Lincoln
neither for or against
Are we thinking God is on our side and forgetting that we need to be on his? Until we get on his side we are not doing it for his glory, but for ours.
I am wondering about having a longing for God. I want to want nothing more than God. And I know that there truly is nothing more. I intellectually want and desire nothing more than all of God. Mentally I desire to settle for nothing less. Physically I go to my knees, face to the ground and ask for the fullness of God.
