When is Love un-nice?
“One of the experts in the law answered him, “Teacher, when you say these things, you insult us also.” Jesus replied, “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them.” – Luke 11:45-46
Love is not always nice and in fact at times it’s downright insulting! So am I!
At times I feel led to apologize and at other times I don’t – I hope you will understand as I am not trying to be arrogant but the message of the gospel has been and continues to be raped by most and I cannot and must not stay silent!
What are some times when one might see me as insulting and rude:
1) When someone tries to make the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ about law instead of Grace! Law got me to Christ but Christ is the end of the law for all who believe! The law is good for those under it as it brings them to the One who can meet their need – but it is not for those “in Christ.”
2) When some arrogant fool tries to say that they know what I am teaching and yet they refuse to read 7 simple questions and scripture because they “know” – https://www.begracefull.com/let-the-journey-begin/
3) When I see followers of Christ being misled by “teachers of the law” – this angered Jesus, Paul, John and little ole me! I have buried friends because of legalism – but I will NOT bury anymore if I can help it!
Am I perfect? Yes and No – Christ in me is and His Love is perfecting me with regard to my relationships here even though I stand before the thrown of God right now in confidence NOT because of me but HIM in me!
I Love you and I Love Jesus – and I will share the Grace, Peace and Love of The Lord Jesus Christ with my dying breath God willing! Part of that Love is Not nice!
