It’s Just Work

  
FEARLESS FRIDAY presents- 

“LOVE without God is just works (work),” said Craig. The challenge is loving intentionally requires effort. Frankly I find myself fascinated by a lazy society who wants a drive in take out kind of love. Instead of a love worth dying for, we are faced with love that’s short and sweet – kind of like a text. The effort of a face to face moment looking into the eyes of another person has been dumbed down to an effortless minuscule moment created in between reading a tweet or post. Have we forgotten what it means to hold the hand of someone whose spouse is dying? Hug the woman who miscarried again? Sit beside the elderly man or woman who raised you? What IS love? If you think love is showing up for an hour service then you are probably famished for a real relationship. If you call church your family but find them mysteriously absent from your life when pain and heartbreak appear then it’s probably more your hiding place instead of family. Love is beyond meetings and money. If your family is Facebook then chances are you are a shut in or have chosen isolation with your computer as your life partner. A computer only requires updates – not a face to face. If you truly have no other way to get out and know others then it’s understandable that you live in front of your computer. However if you are able to physically step out among the living then I challenge you to love – on purpose. Start with you. Look yourself in the mirror and hear the words from your Creator – I LOVE YOU AND I’M FOR YOU AND I’VE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU. Then, say that to someone else. With purpose step out today to love God’s way. God’s way is encouraging, without condemnation, and will leave you stronger than you started. Gods LOVE will take you from your comfort zone into a zone of trust and inner peace. God’s love will allow you to like you while drawing you into changing to be more LOVEly, LOVEable and LOVEing.GOD’S LOVE devastates you with MISSION POSSIBILITIES!!! When face to face with Him, you find loving is not work – it’s who you are and who you will become.
