He does not change

How do you define what is right and what is wrong?

      Is there an absolute standard of good?
      How do you reconcile Old Testament teachings
      … with the love Jesus taught?
      Does God change and are His commandments negotiable?

God’s standard is absolutely clear …

      “For I am the Lord, I do not change;
      Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
      Yet from the days of your fathers you have gone away
      from My ordinances and have not kept them.
      Return to Me, and I will return to you,

      Mal 3:6-7

Yet, when God said ‘I do NOT change’
… He was not merely referring to His commandments,
but that His plans and love towards us will never change,
… and therefore we are not consumed!
However it is up to us to return to Him, to His love for us!

      Returning to God means to get into a relationship with Him,
      … that is why God sent Jesus – to restore us to Him!
      Jesus, when asked what the greatest commandment is,
      … answered that firstly it is loving God,
      … and secondly it is loving others.

The way therefore seems clear, but how do I live that relationship,
… and how will that help me know what is right and what is wrong?

      Jesus showed us the way in John 15:7 saying …
      If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

So, how do I know what is right and what I should do?
      Study God’s Word, then go to Jesus, ask Him, He will tell you!
And, how will I get to truly love God and love others?
      Go to Jesus, ask Him, He will show you!

Let His love consume you!
