What’s left?  In a world blinded by the gods of this age it would seem nothing but endless battles for who is right and who is wrong.  Left with just that we are all raging heathens each with our own tune of right and wrong playing so loudly we can’t hear each other we only just look and point fingers.

  1. What of hope and joy?

That would take faith….not just believing in something or someone but Truth that is tested, tried and proven true in any and every circumstance.  Not mere facts….good or bad but Truth, real Truth!

When He returns who will he find faithful?  Those hearing the Word of God and holding Him as the Substance and Evidence of all hoped for and not yet seen.  With so great a hope why do we have so much division where everything is black and white, male and female, blue and red…?  There is One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism Ephesians 4:5.   I believe the black and white, the male the female, the blue and red etc… can be distinct and not separate.  Can that be accomplished?  Can we agree? God says that whatever he joins (yokes) together let not man divide (put asunder, cleave into two parts).  So I guess the right question is how much of what we see joined together is of God and how much is just good and evil put together by man?

There are many members in the Lord’s body He calls the Church and that Church is the only True Church.  It was never about rules and regulations, buildings and money those all belong to the world’s system.  It’s about LOVE.  Now if we could all just understand the definition of love. 

God is love.  God looked and loved man.  He didn’t look at man in the beginning and say he was good he loved him as a creature created in His image God loved. This same God who is the Spirit put his Spirit in human flesh because he loved.  Love is a substance and an action. (a noun and a verb)  We should hope for Love.  The kind of love that laid his own life down for another is the same love that will come for his own.

The Father loved the World the whole world.

 I don’t think we need change..we need to show some love but a lack of knowing true love..that life-giving, self-sacrificing one true God love that never changes whether fiery hot or coldest cold you recognize it as true love.

A-gape take a look it’s out of this world.
