We live in the middle of chaos.
Happiness is the ultimate goal.
Truth is whatever makes us happy.
And love means simply never interfering with other’s happiness or their truth.
How on earth did we get here?
All too easily.
We allowed lust to redefine love.
And we watered down it to make whatever I want (or think I want) admirable.
So that’s where we are.
But how do we escape this mass confusion?
If we want to restore peace, we must relearn the truth about love.
True love is based on reality, not lies. And God is the only one who knows the Truth.
True love is bold. In defense, support, exhorting, correcting, and encouraging. It cannot be passive or permissive because it is based on truth. Thus, God’s love toward us is incisive and active.
True love is free, not a transaction. It loves at its own expense, forever. Because...
True love is self-sacrificing, not self-serving. It puts others first at all times.
True love is something that no one can understand or mimic apart from Jesus Christ – Love in the flesh. And this we must remember. It is illogical to expect love from those who do not know its source: Christ, our Lord and Savior. So if we want true love, we must introduce them to Jesus.
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
