If you love me keep my commandments. This is often used as ram rod to guilt people into a legalistic obedience to many things but the goal of his text is that we would love one another as we have been loved and by doing so be a light in a dark world.
A humble walk with God is a life this is fully aware of our sinfulness and how we could not handle God’s judgement. Humility cries out for mercy because we are aware of how desperately we need mercy. Doing justly is not demanding justice. Loving mercy is not loving it only when I receive mercy. Do you want justice? Do you love mercy? Do you walk Humbly?
Today on In the Study we look at the call to ministry by Jesus. We are not called to do something but we are called to be with Him. When we rush to the "do's" of life and miss the "with" relationship we will find burnout and bitterness are not a possibility but a daily companion. I hope you will listen today as we talk about being "with" Him.
