Scripture: Matthew 7
You cannot vanquish love.
What amazed people about Jesus’ teachings was the deep sense of authority He had in his teaching.
Christians are people and do fail other people, sometimes very badly. We mess up; we make mistakes; we fail in our mission.
It’s a problem when the world accuses Christians of not caring. If they cannot trust or believe in us and the love we share, how can they possibly believe in God.
We go out into the world and, when our actions belie our claim to Christianity, we can utterly fail in our testimony.
God wants to give us good things but we are often after the wrong stuff.
We are not known by our words; we are known by our actions.
Jesus was founded in love, born to love, lived and died for love. Love cannot be vanquished.
