“The Greatest Generation” … thats what we call the generation that suffered through the Great Depression, fought World War 2 and came home to settle down. But how they got that way and why America began to become crazy rich after WW2 can be summed up in 3 words:
“GOD Is LOVE”
whoever is Loving is of GOD, whoever isnt is helping Create the fall we discussed in yesterdays devotional “Falling” (if you missed it link is below).
“This is your lot, the portion I have decreed for you,” declares the Lord, “because you have forgotten me and trusted in false gods.” … Jeremiah 13:25
The reason for the fall be it personal or national is:
“GOD Loves us”
and because He Loves us and made us He knows that the only way to have a Great life is for us to:
“LOVE each other as I have loved you”
Yes that was spoken by The One Who Loved us so much He died for us … each and every one of us, kind of like “The Greatest Generation” did … but then a terrible thing happened … America got filthy rich and made The GOD Who Is LOVE beyond human understanding, a god who was all about money, earthly prosperity and big followings Instead of BIGGER LOVE.
For me one of the worst parts of this is that leading the charge into this ATM god, who is stupid enough to make us think earthly and Heavenly treasure is the same, is the church! Yes the church in America for the most part left The GOD Who Is LOVE a while back and thats why the church is in decline.
We will dig deeper into this tomorrow but for now if you would like to Check out yesterdays devotional “Falling” the link is below:
