Random Reflection

26 Nov

Two equally dangerous pitfalls to avoid:

1. Affection-less Christianity: Christianity that is devoid of any warm affections/emotions of love, joy, peace toward God and His people. This Affection-less Christianity leads to cold, dead, legalistic religion.

2. Search of Un-mediated Affections: This search is characterized by people searching for experiences of affections/emotions of love, joy, peace apart from God’s appointed means (e.g. the Word, sacraments, the proclamation of the Gospel, etc.).

Prayer:

Lord, grant me, by Your Spirit,  soul/love/joy-stirring affections for You and your people as I mediate on the blood-bought promises given to me in Your Word.
