What does it look like when a person has lost Love? Not that the Love left, as it is Always steadily there. But what we are going through in this new short devotional and video series is what it looks like when a person or a people or a country try to substitute some thing or idea for The Love from Above.
“I saw the Lord standing by the altar, and he said: “Strike the tops of the pillars so that the thresholds shake. Bring them down on the heads of all the people; those who are left I will kill with the sword. Not one will get away,none will escape.” – Amos 9:1
When we focus on building instead of Loving we will be brought down. When our desire is for MORE instead of desiring to help others we will be destroyed. When our attention is taken by seeking personal or group gain instead of seeking only to “Love one another” we will fall and things will end badly!
The reason we can’t focus on Love is because we are focused on law and self righteousness instead of Faith and The Righteousness of Christ already Freely given through the cross.
The law ends where Christ begins because Faith in Christ is the Only Righteousness there is – and yet a huge part of church services across America this weekend will be pointing out sins, blaming others for Americas decline and focusing on bigger pillars or larger crowds and how to increase the legal morality instead of Christ like Love for ALL!
