Don’t Let Your Love Grow Cold
Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.Matthew 24:12-13
With the evil that is in the world today, it’s easy to have revenge in our minds. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. (Romans 12:19) Christians have no room in their hearts for hate, except hate for the deception that Satan has done to many people. We bring Christ to people and we do that with a heart of love, just as Jesus did when he went to the cross.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12) To keep our love from growing cold, we leave vengeance to the Lord, and we direct our hate toward Satan who deceives the people, including people close to us. As evil increases in the world, the love increases in the hearts of Christians. We are sad that so many people believe Satan’s lies because they don’t know God’s truth.
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. (Proverbs 3:3-4) The most powerful way to fight evil from Satan, is show love and our faithfulness to the Lord. We have the power of God within us to fight Satan and the evil he causes in this world; through prayer and reflecting God’s love and truth. It is important that we fight Satan and not people, because Satan has deceived people to pull them away from God, and away from Heaven.
Satan hates ever human on the planet because we are all created in the image of God, yet many people are serving Satan and they don’t even know it, because many don’t believe in Heaven or Hell. The following verse is what Jesus said to the Pharisees, who thought they doing right, yet they were full of pride and ignored God’s truth. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44) This verse can apply to many people today, because they don’t know God’s truth.
Today: Don’t let your love grow cold, as evil gets worse, fight Satan with prayer and with God’s love in your heart.
Prayer: Lord never the love in my hearts grow cold, buy let my hate for sin grow stronger, because Satan is the cause of all evil this world. In Jesus name, Amen
