Path Of Pleasure Is Empty

Fornication is rampant.  Couples have sex before marriage.  They live together before marriage and think it is okay.  One can watch others have sex on television or movies whenever they want. Women can have their babies murdered and be protected under the law.  Pornography takes what is beautiful and makes it profane.  

 Emptiness always come from an indulgent life that lives far away from God's order and beauty.  Sin brings death.  Righteousness brings life.

Many bad things have been happening in our country for a long time.  It is getting worse and worse so what can we do?

Make your home a happy home.  Let the world see Jesus shining through you.  Make your marriage strong and love your husband dearly.  Raise your children to be well-disciplined walking with Jesus.  Dwell on the lovely and the good.

This isn't our home.  Satan is the prince of the power of the air and most people are listening to him.  He produces ugliness, immorality, and unpleasantness.  We listen to the King of Kings who He brings beauty, morality, and things that are pleasant and pure.  We know how the story ends.  Don't let the condition of our country take away your joy.  God is still on His throne.

We are strangers and aliens.  We must never forget this important fact.  We must be full of peace and joy or what will attract the world to us and Jesus?  We are the salt and light of this earth.  Live like salt and light.  Put your hope and trust in God, not in this country.

Love the homosexuals in your life.  Love the couples who are living together.  Love wins others, not hate and condemnation.  Remember, they don't live under biblical standards.  They don't know our God so why should we expect them to live like us?

Show them Jesus.  Love them.  Never be cruel to them.  They need Jesus as much as we did.  They are looking for meaning in life.  They are just looking in all the wrong places.  True meaning only comes from knowing Jesus and walking with Him.  Show them the way.

Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
 This is the first and great commandment.
 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Matthew 22:36-40
