 the need for a "new" Love



Mme. Guyon said That she loved God, not because of who He is, because of what He did for her, not because of any other reason, but she just simply loved Him. Oh and how do we need that love, one that not even what christ did for himself, but simply loves Him.

 Re: They are right

Brother,

I agree with your zeal for the glory of God but this generation does need the message of Jesus Christ given. The Apostle Paul over and over again stresses the need to speak, proclaim, testify and PREACH the gospel. But I do know what you are talking about to be able to preach the gospel of Jesus [b]fully[/b] with an demonstration of the power of God. Amen may those days come now and through us as we step out in obedience to the calling God has for us. Time is short brother.

EDIT: the brother totally changed his message and title above so my post doesn't make that much sense now to the viewer.

This is a good sentiment but our pilgrimage never BEGINS here but always with something we want 'from' God. As Paul quotes“There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.” (Rom. 3:11, KJVS)
It is illustrated by Jacob's two visits to Bethel. At the first (Gen. 28:20-21) he is striking a bargain, getting something 'from' God. At the second he is building his altar and pouring our his offering (Gen. 35:3); he is giving himself 'to' God. There were some traumatic experiences between the two.

1Jo 4:19 we--we love him, because He--He first loved us;-- Youngs

Sometimes we forget that we were dead and not capable of Loving God before salvation .

 Re:

Paris Reidhead says in his sermon 'Ten Shekels and a Shirt' that he'd like to see some Christians that came to know Christ for the right reasons.

He compares the popular message of "Come to Jesus so you can go to Heaven" to two men sitting in a coffee shop, deciding that they're gonna rob a bank and get something for nothing.

To reiterate what Ray Comfort is so known for preaching, you have to understand your sin before you can repent from it.

Back to Reidhead- it would be good to see some who serve God not because of what God can do for them, but because God is worthy.

Grace and Peace...
