I am seeking a new and shiny object. Innovation is cool. The new thing is the holy grail. I love it for sure.
It is a shock to know that the Word of God is eternal and there is nothing new about it. God’s goal for us to love. It always has been and always will be.
When we don’t know God’s love for us and how to love others, it does feel new though. We become new beings in Jesus the Messiah.
May we experience God’s love anew today.
My dear friends, I’m not writing anything new here. This is the oldest commandment in the book, and you’ve known it from day one. It’s always been implicit in the Message you’ve heard. On the other hand, perhaps it is new, freshly minted as it is in both the Messiah and you—the darkness on its way out and the True Light already blazing!
