Due Diligence

This was a comment at Z's.

When we find that we can not love someone (and we generally can’t love most people, yet are commanded to) we find that God has asked us to do something we can’t.
That’s when we ask Him to love others THROUGH us.
To make us the vessels of His mercy.
I wish I could remember to do this more often, but when I have, it’s been miraculous.

I posted it on FB and had some encouraging response.

This stuff can change your life. It did mine.

Rom 7:21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!


  1. We are imperfect and fallen creatures. Well, you are more than me, but you know what I mean.


  2. Everything is relative.
    Are we related?

  3. Sorry I missed this post. A very good lesson Ed. I've been trying to live this way too: love others like Christ loves us. It's HIS love that carries me through. Thank you for this sweet reminder. Hope your day is blessed brother in Christ. ~:)

    1. Thank you my friend. Happy Easter to you and Mr. Sparky.
      I have a Good Friday post tomorrow.
