"…to the praise of the glory of His grace…" Ephesians 1:6

As lawlessness increases most people’s love will grow cold

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”

I know God will keep His true bride but how long before He comes back? Come, Lord Jesus.

Lawlessness increases and we think that what once was unspeakable is now only “bothersome” or a “different approach” and what was bothersome is now readily embraced. As lawlessness increases we are all prone to this downgrade. If the Lord tarries, what men of my generation may have swallowed hard to tolerate will be comman fare and something unthinkable will be the new edginess of ministry. You can count on it: the next generation won’t think what Acts 29 is doing is cool enough or edgy enough. We are all prone to leave the God we love. All of us are in danger of our love growing cold. It certainly “can” grow cold while we talk of great pursuits.

May God raise up more courageous young men who pursue pure and undefiled religion that is both missional AND in pursuit of holiness. May God give us Christian leaders who cultivate a love relationship with the holy Lord of glory. May God give us pastors who fear dishonoring the pure and holy name of Jesus more than they long for anything else.
