God is love. Jesus is love. Unfortunately, postmodernism has changed the very concept of love especially the love that Jesus offers. His love is defined in the Bible. You loving Jesus is not necessarily a list or set of rules but it is not the ignoring of the Bible. Redefining terms to meet your unwillingness to follow Jesus is not love. Jesus laid His life down at the request of the Father, can you/we lay ours down at His request?
What picture is your idea of love?
A baby, a crucified Savior, whip-carrying corrector,
a victorious healer, a
curser of fig trees, OR
a nice concept that lets you do what you want to do?
Solomon, Rehoboam, and Jeroboam left a legacy of confusion and syncretism of the worship of Jehovah that sentenced Israel/Judah to separation from God and the Land.
The truth is Jesus died on the cross and came out of the tomb in victory over SIN. He did all He did to show us that He is the Way and that our way will not work.
I believe that 2015 will be a time to Clean-up So We Can Celebrate. Jesus still stands at the door of your heart and is knocking but letting Him in means your way goes to the Cross so you can join Him outside of the empty TOMB!
I think I got all of the credits but if not let me know and I will find it. They should also be attached to the picture. I did take several of these.
