"God, who is enthroned forever, will hear them and afflict them - men who never change their ways and have no fear of God."
In our relationship with Jesus, our failure to change to be obedient to His commands makes us quite unloving. In fact, stubbornness and selfishness are like spitting in God’s face and saying we have no need of Him. How does He respond to our failure to change? While never letting go of us, He may withhold blessings from us. We can pay lip service all we want, saying we love Him, but in following through and changing our ways, our relationship blossoms. We may feel it is not in our power to change. Don’t worry: it is in Jesus Christ that we have the strength to do so.
DO YOU LOVE THE LORD WITH YOUR ACTIONS? HOW IS FAILURE TO CHANGE THE SAME AS SELFISHNESS? WHAT'S THE CONNECTION BETWEEN LOVE AND CHANGE?
