Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Thought For the Day

Do we love the Lord with passion from a deep wellspring? Is it love to be tolerant of those committing evil? Or is it instead a apathy? How do we stand before God a say”I loved my neighbor” and yet bridled our passion in order to not offend man? Our God is not a shallow god! His passions run deep! To feel His love is almost indescribable!  “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” – Revelation 3:14-22
Oh Lord, please do not let me forget that fire of your love and presence, in Jesus name I pray! I Love you Lord!
