Sunday – 5/3/17

GOD keeps an eye on his friends, his ears pick up every moan and groan. (‭‭Psalm‬ ‭34:15‬) This brings to mind the love a mother has, particularly for a newborn baby. Whereas most new fathers just collapse and run around in ever decreasing circles at the smallest moan or groan, their mothers seem to work through an invisible bond that reassures and relives the child almost instantly. Add to that the almost instantaneous relief a child feels just by being picked up and hugged by its mother and we can get somewhere near to the truth of just how love is supposed to bless us. Some try and convince us that Christian love isn’t ‘soppy’ or ‘sloppy,’ – I’m not convinced. Because the Love I see that Jesus portrayed certainly was. He didn’t distance himself – he touched. He didn’t just quote instructions – he comforted. He didn’t put down the weak – he reassured. He even wanted children (with all their noise and fizz) to be able to come to him – and berated people for holding them back, thinking he was ‘too important’ or ‘too busy!’ He cried, groaned and sighed … He loved! “Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.” (‭‭John‬ ‭13:34). X

If we boast that we have no sin, we’re only fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we freely admit our sins when his light uncovers them, he will be faithful to forgive us every time
