Do I Desire to Love God? "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind."
Brother Don Currin has been a blessing to me the last few years since coming to know and follow him. His posts and preaching are always so edifying and encouraging me unto Christ. This message below is so timely.
Up to this point, everything I did was for my own narcissism and all attempts to easy my hopeless, dark, hell-bent state were a failure. No matter how I tried to numb the pain and bring light into my life, I was unable. My prison chains were real, forged of a damning, deceitful, and disturbing kind of steel. These binding serrated bars and chain-links of death were unable to be lifted and left me most inescapable. I was powerless, and none of my works, even my very best ones, nor any of my uses of self-help, could rescue.
In the later 1600’s John Flavel wrote this picture of God the Father talking with His dear Son regarding the hopeless and sinless state. This has come to be known as, “The Father’s Bargain.”
