The Truth in Love

leave a comment »

 Great love tells the truth no matter what the cost. The one who truly loves is not seeking to gain followers for themselves, but is seeking to firmly plant children of God into the house of their Father. The Word of truth pulls out dead roots, tears down strong holds, destroys the work of the Father of lies. It also builds up, plants, and establishes strongholds of refuge, for all who love the truth and shun the lie. Is love all roses and hearts? No, true love is an act of war against the kingdom of hell. And then you ask me what is kind? Well, what is kind? Is it kind to allow a dozen thugs to sit on emergency food that belongs to a million children starving to death? Or is it better to “remove evil” out-of-the-way to feed the dying innocent? Love in action is militant every way you look at it. Love that makes a difference loves the truth no matter what the cost. And greater love has no man than this, that he lays his life down for his brothers. Since when is any sacrifice considered lovely, except for the sacrifice of Christ, who truly loved?
