The Love of God III

by Tylos Jackson on March 7, 2018
Therefore, does God want believers to come to church as spiritual Stepford Christian walking around just smiling and shaking hands but not connecting, not feeling, not sharing, and not loving.  No, God wants us to refuse the temptation of mirroring the world from which we were redeemed.  God wants His children to love even in the midst of unlovable people persecuting and slandering.  God wants His children to love even when evil is done to them and count it all joy.  God wants His children to forgive quickly and love patiently for doing so will display that His presence rules their lives.  God wants His children to endure hardness as a good soldier and suffer like a Christian.  God wants His children to not be full anxiety over anything but through prayer and supplication allow the peace of God to cover their lives.

Yet the truth of the matter is that we ought to "let God be true, but every man a liar" (Romans 3:4).  If we as believers are not careful our opinions and disappointments with fellow professing Christians will cause us to call the Bible to be irrelevant, and in some cases our trust in God to be at best lukewarm.   

I believe that the people of God are surrendering their lives to display a sacrificial love life that is reciprocating His love and revealing His compassion toward each other.  Even though, like anyone that has a bird's-eye view of people that are in the Christian community there will be some individuals that are not walking in full maturity in their faith.  Yet according to the bible that is when the stronger believer helps the weaker brother in the faith (Rom. 15:1).  The New Testament mentions human frailties and immature believers yet the Word of God instructs followers of Jesus to love and usher fellow believers to a more intimate walk with God.
 
Refuse to bite the fruit of believing what God’s Word has not said about fellow believers and trust God for the best in each other.  Not backing away because some brothers and sisters are not waking in full maturity for we all need help from God through one another.  God’s word is true so let’s speak what God says concerning His people and not be led by emotions, physical sight, or conflicts, for God’s people are loving, gracious, and victorious people.    

Until my next blog, live life to reveal God’s presence, revive man’s soul, and rejoice in new life. 
 
Blessings,
Bishop Tylos Jackson, Jr.
