The Night is Far Gone…

Love is the only thing that can destroy evil completely, so it is time for this nation to unite and do what is good and right by helping each other.

Does that mean that people should abandon the belief systems that have been passed down for centuries, or that people should ignore or overlook what society deems as good or evil?  Yes, I believe that it is time for all people to awaken to what is actually good and right, and to stop criticizing or condemning others for their shortcomings.  The truth is that no one, NOT ONE human being aside from Jesus Christ has ever been found to be perfect, and since the only perfect person was killed by all of the imperfect ones to prove to the world what LOVE is worth, maybe it is time we all turn our hearts toward love.  

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.  God is love.  When people say they know God, but have never known God, the world looks like chaos, confusion, strife, bitter, abusive and complacent mixed with greedy, angry, condemning, shameful, disrespectful, overachievers, doubters, haters and a few believers.  Even though people may not know God, He knows all of us. He longs to reveal himself to those that have been forgotten or overlooked by the world.  He wants everyone to know love, and He is love.

Romans 13: 1-14

1Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

Fulfilling the Law Through Love

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

The justice of God is that all forgive and receive forgiveness if we are expecting mercy and grace for our own lives through the blood of Jesus!
