Are we even speaking the same language?

I only speak English so if someone were to speak Spanish to me I would possibly catch a few words of what they’re saying but ultimately wouldn’t truly understand what they were trying to tell me.

This is what happens when believers try speaking to those who don’t have ears to hear or a heart to understand. Therefore they hurl insults at you because you believe something that is foreign to them.

“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Matthew 5:11 NASB

Stand firm in your beliefs and resist responding to their insults knowing that they simply didn’t understand what you were saying.

When we get into an argument over our beliefs we both lose, when it’s done online, which we all know that’s when the powerful keyboarders come out with fingers flaring. Those who look on lose also.

Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness,
2 Timothy 2:14‭-‬16 NASB

Friends there will be a time for us to speak and there will be a time for us to remain silent. Pray diligently for discernment on which is which. Not everyone sees as we see nor do they wish to. 

Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. Matthew 7:6 NASB

Be blessed

Incorruptible Love

Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ with incorruptible love.

Ephesians 6:24 NASB

This morning this word stood out to me. I’ve read this text hundreds of times and yet today was the first time I noticed this specific word, incorruptible

Then I asked myself ‘do they love Him with incorruptible love‘ they being those who struggle with worldly things. Do they have TRUE undying, unbreakable, everlasting LOVE for our Lord Jesus Christ? 

Because I know when I doubted in His love for me my world would get so dark and lonely. But the moment I saw me as He sees me that’s when my love for HIM became incorruptible. Truly. That’s when the bad didn’t seem so bad and the dark wasn’t so dark. The pits of despair were no more and the thoughts of defeat never take root. 

My eyes are always set upon His Promises. I trust God. I believe God. I Know God. Therefore, my love truly is incorruptible. Never will anyone or anything, no matter how tragic and painful, make me doubt the GOODNESS of my Jesus Christ. He has promised to guard what is HIS. My flesh may suffer but that will return to dust, my Spirit will always be united with my Father who is in Heaven. 

The World today has become a puppet show from the puppet master Satan himself. Wars are created through words and hate and unforgiveness. They’re blind to the reality of the war raging against their spirits. Their love is corrupted, they have forgotten who has created them, who has sacrificed Himself for them. They have forgotten. 

Have you? Are you participating in the war of words? I have to wonder if you believe you have the power to create life with those words you hurl at others. Or if you’re participating in death, in our Fathers name. Because I assure you Jesus is LOVE and if your words are leaving them worse than when you met, you are under the wrong spirit my friend. 

Choose to trust in Him. Choose to Love as Him. 

If your love truly is incorruptible then Grace is with you. Share it with them. Shine His light by your actions. Be as He is. Choose Love.
