Rock'em Sock'em Christians

Christians easily lose focus on how to love each other. We have a tendency to look upon each other as the enemy. Our intent changes from loving each other to inflicting emotional harm. Love is the most excellent way but hate has a more satisfying feeling to us. So we chose to hate never realizing the world looks at us like spoiled brats playing "Rock'em Sock'em Robots". But we profess the love of Christ with the same mouth we use to curse our brothers. We distort God's Word to our advantage and act as if God loves us more than the person we hate.

We have missed it Christians. God so loved the WORLD that His died for us all. It was the greatest extension of grace and mercy in all of history. So why do we fail to give it so often. Anger gets the best of us and causes to act out in fits of rage, when this happens we fail to promote the righteousness of God. But love leads others to see their faults, admit their sins, and change. God's Love for us lead us to acknowledge our wrongs, confront our sin, and follow after Him.

I am not speaking as a man who has no experience of learning to love those he is trying not to hate. I am speaking as a man who is fought the battle within himself to love through the power of Christ. Your Christian brother is not the enemy nor is the unbeliever who does not know God. They are just people who have accepted the lies of the enemy. Yes they speak ill of you, ruin your reputation, mock you, and use scriptures to hurt you. But God's grace outweighs sin and His loves conquers all. The fight is not with those we see, it is with the unseen enemy. It is with the one who has deceived us and deceptively gained control. But the God in us is stronger than our hate and the enemy's lies. We do not have the power to change others or but we do have the power to forgive and love.

We must stop playing the devil's game of hate boxing and start embracing each other with the love of Christ. The world will never taste and see the Lord is good if we as Christians keep putting a bad taste in their mouths with our hatred and ill-treatment towards one another. Stay focused you can do this.

I am not your enemy

If we regard another Christian as an enemy, we will never be able to love them as a brother.

Let your life speak for it's self, stop bragging about it.

We study God's Word not to brag about our knowledge of it but to grow in spiritual maturity and become closer to Christ.
Psalms 1:2-4, 119:27

Live like you know God

God beckons us by His Spirit to live a righteous life. He enables is through the power of His Spirit to do so and gives us His Word to show us how. Today let us boldly answer the call of living a life that pleases God instead of rejecting it as we have done in the past. You can do this.

Hebrews 12:25

"Shake -N- Bake"

God will shake up your life not to startle you but remove the things that will not last. He shakes us up to help us see the temporary things/people who are enticing us to walk away from God (because that is where you will find the devil) and to show us the eternal things/people He has given us to help us walk closer to Him (because that is where you will find Him). In the end the shaking is for our good, embrace it. Stay focused you can do this.
