Being away from American culture for three years now has given me the opportunity to reflect on many things. The constant judging/condemning/comparing yourselves among yourselves is so engrained in the American culture and takes place constantly on news shows, politics, high schools and now even in our churches. The gospel is such good news and freedom from this pride that is is robbing our entire culture of experiencing His peace, grace, and love. "By this all men will know". Leave God's job to Him to sort it all out. Our job is to love. There are only 2 commandments for us now. Are we being faithful in those 2 things and do we really know and understand His love? I pray for America and all of us that are different from the world to know and experience this love. For some reason our definition of love has been distorted through films and culture. "Fall in" "Fall out"...what is love, a hole? We need a reset in our core of what love is...If God is love and the world needs to see God through us...don't they need to see our love? or do we ourselves as Christians only know law, rules, and religion? I pray, we as Christians, draw in and lay aside the weight that so easily besets us, and know and experience His love.
