“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.- Galatians 5:22-23

James Madison, in 1778 wrote:

“We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it.  We have staked the future of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self- government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

Martin Niemoeller (1892-1984), a German citizen during the Nazi Regime, stated:

“In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.  Then  they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.  Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.  Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.  Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

Psalms 119:45-46 “And I will walk at liberty, for I seek Your precepts. I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings and shall not be ashamed.”

In his Book, The Great Evangelical DisasterFrancis Shaeffer warned:

“…Something has happened in the last sixty years (1920-1980’s).  The freedom that once was founded on a Biblical consensus and a Christian ethos has now become autonomous freedom, cut loose from all constraints.  Here we have the world spirit of our age – autonomous man setting himself up as God, in defiance of the knowledge and the moral and spiritual truth which God has given.  Here is the reason why we have a moral breakdown in every area of life.  The titanic freedoms which we once enjoyed have been cut loose from their  Christian restraints and are becoming a force of destruction leading to chaos.  And when this happens, there really are very few alternatives.  All morality becomes relative, law becomes arbitrary, and society moves toward disintegration.  In personal and social life, compassion is swallowed up by self-interest…when the memory of the Christian consensus which gave us freedom within the Biblical form is increasingly forgotten, a manipulating authoritarianism will tend to fill the vacuum.  At this point the words “right” and “left” will make little difference.  They are only roads to the same end; the results are the same.  An elite, an authoritarianism as such, will gradually force form on society so that it will not go into chaos – and most people would accept it.”

Galations 5:13 “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”

Psalm 1:1-6

“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the [fn] path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by [fn] streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its [fn] leaf does not wither; And [fn] in whatever he does, he prospers.

The wicked are not so, But they are like chaff whichthe wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wicked will perish.”

Matthew 22:37-39

“And He said to him,  ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’  This is the great and foremost commandment.  The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'”

Love to others - The more we believe, the more we love: faith is the root, and love is the flower that grows upon it.  “Faith working through love” (Gal. 5:6). ATFG p. 98

Love of God – Christ suffered more for His spouse than ever any husband did for a wife.  he suffered poverty and ignominy.  He who crowned the heavens with stars was Himself crowned with thorns.  He was called a companion of sinners, so that we might be made companions of angels.  He was regardless of His life; he leaped into the sea of his Father’s wrath to save His spouse from drowning.  GMP p. 245

Happy Valentines Day!

I Corinthians 13: 1-13

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have {the gift of} prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  And if I give all my possessions to feed {the poor,} and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

Love is patient,

love is kind {and}

(love) is not jealous;

love does not brag {and}

(love) is not arrogant,

(love) does not act unbecomingly;

(love) does not seek its own,

(love) is not provoked,

(love) does not take into account a wrong {suffered,}

(love) does not rejoice in unrighteousness,but

(love) rejoices with the truth;

(love) bears all things,

(love) believes all things,

(love) hopes all things,

(love) endures all things.

Love never fails; …

But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.


It is interesting to note that If you replace the word “love” with “Jesus”  in the above verses.  It fits perfectly.  Try it.

Now, try it again but this time replace it with your name.

If your like me not only does it not fit… it’s almost embarrassing to the point of being laughable.  Our goal as believers is to become more Christlike.  May the love of God shine in and through you each and every day!

“History has proved that a society based on loving it’s neighbor is more stable and productive than one that is based on killing it’s neighbor.” – James Teasdale, Christian Missionary, Kenya.

“Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed.  We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals; all the standards towards which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves.” – President Theodore Roosevelt

In early 1773, the men of Marlborough, Massachusetts declared unanimously:

“Death is more eligible then slavery.  A free-born people are not required by the religion of Jesus Christ to submit to tyranny, but may make use of such power as God has Given them to recover and support their laws and liberties… We implore the Ruler above the skies, that He would make bare and His arm in defense of His Church and people, and let Israel go.”
