“I know that love, especially God’s love, is not on your working agenda. ” ~~Jesus
Jesus is direct with us. He can do nothing but say what He hears His Father say. He knows God’s agenda. His only desire is to do exactly what God wants Him to. He is speaking to us this way so that we will be saved.
He challenges us is to love. Completely and with our whole heart. This quote is actually from a very long rant that Jesus gave to the religious (Jews) in church (The Temple) one day. To get it in context read all of John 5.
We need to be careful. Going to church may make us feel good but it won’t “save us”. May Jesus never say this of us as he said to the religious people of His day.
“I know that love, especially God’s love, is not on your working agenda. ” ~~Jesus (John 5:41-44 The Message)
