Do any one thing that any one person might consider proof of Christ in me but have not loved then what ever that may be is a lie.
It does not matter how well versed I am in the Bible, how much I pray, how well I understand God, how much God may speak to me, How right I am , How wrong I am, How I look, How smart I am, How dumb I am...............
If I do not love I have no part of God because God is love
God saves us from ourselves and tears apart what He wants. All powerful and all knowing. Jesus Christ will forever be the only one who struck a perfect balance between showing kindness and mercy and still making the consequences clear. No person other then Jesus Christ can have that perfect balance because they are not God. Often what you see is one who is all about hell and God's judgments and another who is all about God's grace and acceptance. This are not the images of God. The one sidedness is an image of man. Maybe everyone knows this already but I don't see how with some of the finger pointing going on.
Truth will never need to be defended or be justified. It will never need our help. If God is big enough to save one like me He is big enough to get done what He needs all we have to do is be willing to say yes to be taught by Him and keep ourselves out of the way.
Be loved you are
