speak the truth in love

God loves us, most people dont dispute that, but recieving His love and reacting to it is intirely another thing. this is where the rubber meets the road. Paul wrote , to as many as recieved Him to them gave He power to become the children of God. There is a believing and there is also a recieving. these events can happen at the same time or at different times.. many people believe in Jesus they have faith in Jesus they are healed by that faith in Jesus, they have even done miraclous things in His name by faith, but they have never recieved Him,(the pearl of great value). in revelations John wrote about those who come to Him at the Judgement, saying Lord, Lord didnot we do these miraclous things in Your name, and Jesus replys depart from me ye workers of iniquity I Never New you. you see they never recieved they only believed and that not all the way for had they really believed they would have sold all and bought the field with the pearl of great value. We as recievers of Christ need the all consuming power of God in our lives, not for our own benefit but for those around us. for trully the love of God is a river, and He desires that the river of life flows out from us into a dieing world. the only way to get to where the Lord Jesus would have us to be is to die to our selves this is buying the field where the pearl abides. Jesus said that unless a kernal of wheat goes into the ground and dies it will not grow and produce fruit..Paul knew about this dieing for he wrote that he died daily....this exposing of truth is all foundainal it is a repairing of the weak foundations that most of us have recieved. For the Lord would have us to be built upon a sure foundation, the Rock that is Jesus..remember Jesus said that He is the way the truth and the life. and upon recieving Him and allowing His way which is through truth we will find life, eternal life....
