Ladies and Gentlemen, I have three pages plus worth of documentation of hacks into my WordPress account and password changes having been made, over just the last couple of months. I’m having to change my passwords daily, and sometimes twice or three times daily. The cowardly terrorists apparently have nothing better to do with their time or mine-or God’s, for that matter. And, this all at the local public libraries, and, I suspect with their help and facilitation. Today’s message fits perfectly here.
Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that Love is the only real conquering force. “Love is the power that can transform the world,” the message tells us. “Eject sin with love,” is the title of the message in the book.
As I think about these two statements, I think about yesterday’s post about stepping out under that banner of love, and deliberately choosing to know the Lord more and more, until it is what we become. When I read 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter, I think not only of patience, kindness, etc. I think also of discipline, chastisement, admonition, reproof, and education. All these are what Jesus came to do for us. God, who is a good Father, teaches us, chastises us when we need it, admonishes us with His wisdom and reproof, and not only disciplines us in love, but also brings us up to have a heart of discipline. By that I mean that He empowers us to become disciplined about our faith, our growth, our progress, our power and authority. I’ve spoken before about the importance of being disciplined to stick with it all, and to adhering to routine, etc.
Being disciplined about love means that I need allow God’s love for me and for others, and my love for God and for others, to help me measure and assess the situation I’m faced with, and to act accordingly, guided by God’s Word. Then, the sin within will be dealt with. That, in turn, empowers us to bring real change, positive change.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
