What Does Jesus Love and Hate
What Does Jesus Love and Hate?
Those who seek glory FROM men reveal they have NO eternal glory to give away TO men. (1 Thessalonians 2:1-12)
Paul is saying... we never made it about us. It's always been for God's glory and your benefit. (1 Thessalonians 2:6-7)
- We didn't butter you up. ("flatter")
- We didn't bait or bargain with you. ("cloak of covetousness")
- We didn't play the big shot or big show with you. ("seek glory or praise from you")
This is why he tells them we gave and poured into you... and never demanded you give to us. We gave and never took from you because we had an aim to bring Jesus to you. For without Him... you would perish. (1 Thessalonians 2:7-10)
Remember this: Those who seek glory and praise and affirmation and applauds FROM men reveal they have NOTHING significant from God to give away TO men. (1 Thessalonians 2:1-12)
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
1 John 4:7-8
Yes, the right kind of love, from the right source, for the right goal (Habakkuk 2:13-14).
Cain loved, the wrong way from a wrong heart (1 John 3). He said, "love not as Cain." I've studied all the essential dynamics of the kingdom and kingdom life — from love, grace, faith, wisdom the King, Himself, wisdom, fear of the Lord, joy of the Lord… and how they all hate lies, unrighteousness, iniquity, wickedness, falsehood.
Just a short list of truth to undergird it.
