“Life without love is really worthless,” according to Rick Warren who is discussing a message from Paul.  My priorities often tend to take on the menial tasks that somehow must get done on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. However, these are never really my true priorities. Like many of us, I create sticky notes and task lists to cover my computers, desks, kitchen cabinets and refrigerator, and even the dashboard of our car. But nowhere on these lists do I ever write “Don’t forget to love thy neighbor tomorrow” or “Remember to love God before lunch today.” In the back of my mind, I hope that everything that I do will revolve around the act of love. However, unless I put it right in front of me, the important things often get pushed aside. My priority list becomes a list of what must be done according to someone else’s priority and timetable. Instead I would like my priority list to become what must be done according to God’s priority and timetable.

There are two important loves:

1)   You must love your God with all your heart.

2)   Love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22: 37-40)

The Praise Movement Radio show did 21 episodes covering the Book of Jonah. We would do a few verses then the next time we would do a few more, but not without Ron first recapping the previous verses. From the start of the program I was often saying, “How about we keep the recap shorter?” […]

We ended our last verse with: “so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” This, “obedience of one” is the obedience of Christ Himself, and not our obedience. This is an important point and one that can give us great assurance when we don’t ‘feel’ like were being very christian. It is […]
