The Great Christmas Scandal – 4
“Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them,and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,and your healing will quickly appear;then your righteousness will go before you,and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” – Isaiah 58:7-8
Here is Gods Big Secret, The Great Christmas Scandal is this – LOVE trumps law! LOVE IS ALL THAT MATTERS! God doesn’t want mindless robots following some structured existence He seeks Lovers who are on a journey to LOVE like Christ did and does – Unconditionally!
Christ came to set an example alright but it was Not then, now or ever an example of legalistic perfection – but instead of that it was and is a Beautiful and Brilliant example of Being made perfect in Love!
