Do we sometimes have words or concepts that mask who we love?
Have you ever wondered how God could seem so cruel to His own Son?
Please read Matthew 10:39
Has it ever occurred to you that the very thing you think of as life or accomplishment could be the very thing that keeps you from God?
Vs. 39 “Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”
There are many words that we use to describe a state or a position that would say has a certain amount of accomplishment. I am not here to judge any of those titles or positions but rather to ask this question?
Who does that title or position edify?
Who gets built up by that title or position?
I believe that it does harm and not good for anything that does not spread Love. GOD IS LOVE and as such if we are to spread Him our focus will not be on our own accomplishment our position attainment but instead our focus will be on others and LOVE will it not?
There are many titles and terms for this concept of self-love and self- adulation but they all share one common trait personal accomplishment instead of Love for others. It’s about the focus of the soul being outward as opposed to inward.
Life if lived by the Spirit is not about our wisdom, our enlightenment or our achievements but rather on a very simple lesson that Jesus showed and lived each and every moment-
“Not my will but your will be done.”
His will is that we “LOVE ONE ANOTHER” and Jesus showed us the ultimate picture of that on the cross. He didn’t have to be up there or stay up there but He did and even though He felt like His own Father had forsaken Him He stayed- Why?
He stayed because of Love for others not Love for self or some level He could attain by hanging up there.
“GOD IS LOVE”
The Love that He wants so very much to flow through you is Love for others- Please help with that and in so doing healing for you WILL happen.
Don’t Worry- Be Grace-Full!!
