In the midst of a chaotic world.
Different ideologies, political correctness defying even human logic, different lifestyles, violence and money, sport and achievements being idealized as the most ‘desirable’ attainments even at the extent of character and pursuit of beauty and quality.
What have we been called to be and do?
When Jesus Christ died and cut a New Covenant at Calvary, He said:
‘A new commandment I now give to you. You must love the Lord your God with your whole heart, mind and spirit and you must love YOUR NEIGHBOUR as you love yourself.’
Who is our neighbour? The rest of humanity…….even if they are our enemies.
The Christian Church has failed much in past generations but NOW when the very fabric of society is becoming more and more chaotic and the Word (The bible is also viewed as being ‘fluid’ ie ……….able to be changed at the will of people to conform to their society’ not society conform to the Word…… this then means we must be”
LOVE TANGIBLE AND REAL IN ALL OUR LIFE.
Not OUR love BUT GOD’s Divine Love…..revealed in us.
We cannot compromise to societal ideologies and waxing and waning…….We must be free to HATE the things impinging on society but walk on knowing we must LOVE THE PEOPLE. LOVE and PRAY for ‘better’ in the lives of ALL.
Jesus also left a legacy,
My Peace I leave with you……..Not as this world can give. But, My PEACE.
Blessings this day. A-men.
