Things Vs. Love

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When two people are in love, they don’t really care about other things; just about each other. They are completely in love. But, if they fall out of love or choose divorce, suddenly things matter–the furniture, the card table–who owns what? So with church history. The first believers didn’t have much, but they possessed all things. They were in love with God. Things didn’t matter. They had so much more. But as church history went on, it changed. The church began to get wealth, power, status, and many other things. When you are in love, you don’t care much about things, but once things become important, you are not in love. So with us. When you first came to the Lord you didn’t care. You had Him and that was enough. Maybe now you’ve become wrapped up in things. When your heart is on these many things you fall out of love with God. Put away your things, clear out that space in your heart, get back to the love you had for Him, because those who are in love are free from things.
