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,“
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!
