“Driven by Love” pastor Loran Livingston, Central Church, February 4, 2018
God said it and it is done- it is the truth, and when we believe and obey God’s Word – we are blessed and favored by the Lord. Our Christian life in this World will never be comfortable, but it is always will be blessed and directed by the Mighty God’s hand. There is no such thing as a normal Christianity, but it is a fight, it’s a struggle every day of your life- because it is God Who is moving you from one place to another. Just like the ark had no sails but was moved by the wind and in their confusion God was still the Master of their journey.
Jesus didn’t save us to cruise comfortably through life, actually God can let you travel into a bad place so He can minister through you to others who are in need.
God didn’t call us to straighten out people, but to love them and show the love of Christ through our lives. Treat people the way you want to be treated, love them, pray for them and leave them along, and let God do His work in their lives. God is a better God then we were told. He loves and cares for us more then we were told, and God has the best in store for us because we are forgiven people!
