Choose and Choose Again: The Brave Act of Returning to God’s Love

Choose and Choose Again: The Brave Act of Returning to God’s Love

Coming Soon to A View From the Wall: Kevin Butcher

The most difficult part of being a Watchman is not the watching, or the warning, or even the choice to represent Christ and “finish well…” The most difficult and highest calling of a Watchman or Watchwoman is to love unconditionally; to view people – all people – as God views them. We watch, warn, and witness, but do we love?
The world is not desperate for more information. They have more of that than any generation in history. They are not dying for more apologetics, much as I am a fan of apologetics. The world doesn’t need our doctrinal statement or our list of denominational dos and don’ts. They can get plenty of lists and rigid requirements to fit in from the unsaved world. That’s not why Christ put us here and it’s not why He hasn’t returned.
What the world needs most is what it can only get from us. The world needs a Watchman like the Apostle John, who wrote several times, “By this, everyone will know that you are My disciples – if you love one another” (John 13:35). He also wrote “If we do not love our brother, whom we can see, how can we claim to love God whom we have never seen?” (1 John 4:20)
The world doesn’t need an airtight argument for the inerrancy of the Bible. They don’t need a perfect church, perfect answers, or a perfect worldview. They need something that the world cannot give them—love.
Love, genuine love, originates in God (Romans 5:8). They need someone to demonstrate that loving God. They need a Watchman who knows how to reflect the most important part of God—His love for humanity!
Coming soon to a View From the Wall: Join Joe and Dillon and guest Kevin Butcher as they discuss God’s love and why it is more necessary than any time in Church history.
