Dear God-tracker

GOD-TRACKING IS BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS UPON GOD’S PRECEPTS

Megan’s heart was breaking. She was being confronted the greatest decision of her young life. Megan had grown up in a church environment and had given her life to Jesus at a young age but, like most youngsters, she had drifted from her faith and had ceased attending church. But recently she’d had a fresh touch from Jesus. The Lord whom she had discovered as a child was indeed real and revealing his love to her in ways she would never had imagined. His love was so personal and so unconditional. Though she had rejected him and even ridiculed others who loved him, he had forgiven her and gently wrapped invisible arms around her with a promise of a new fulfilled life. Unfortunately, Megan had entered a compromising relationship with Clive five years earlier and was now faced with the dilemma of acknowledging God in the relationships. Sadly, Clive mocked her new found faith, after deciding that he didn't "do God." Megan knew what the scripture says about Christians being unequally yoked in relationships and needed to make a choice.

Love is the most powerful emotion we can know, but I have discovered there are two types of love: right love and wrong love. As a Believer I believe that right love honours the ethics of God’s word - his principles and purposes – while wrong love disrespects the precepts of our faith in Christ. For instance, a married man may fall in love with another woman. He may experience real and sincere love for the other woman but this love violates the principle: “You shall not commit adultery.” Therefore, though genuine, adulterous love is wrong. Sometimes we need to stand strong by God’s grace that empowers us to act upon and obey God’s precepts and crucify wrong love.

Megan broke up with Clive. He was her first love; she believed he would be her only love. However, Megan had discovered, as she drew closer to the God of love, that her love for Clive was wrong. This love was not based upon God’s principles and it violated the teachings of his word. The love she had for Clive was genuine but tainted by moral compromise and was not inspired of God. Megan had a new ambition in life. This ambition was to acknowledge God in all her ways and trust him to direct her paths. However, she was not able to do this in her walk with Clive. Megan never stopped loving him as a person but needed to move on in following the plans and purposes of God for her future.

God-tracking is building relationships upon God’s precepts

Every blessing

(NOTE:
The principle I am attempting to apply here involves un-married folk. If you became a Christian after marriage and now find yourself unequally yoked to an unbelieving spouse then do not seek separation. Please read 1 Corinthians 7:10-17 for guidance on this situation.)


It’s all in the Book…

Exodus 20:14

Verse of the Week

1 Corinthians 13:6
Love does not delight in evil14 but rejoices with the truth


Quote of the Week A Sample of Dudley’s Fave Quotes “Nothing can separate you from God's love, absolutely nothing. God is enough for time, God is enough for eternity. God is enough!” --- Hannah Smith


Don’t Give Up, Look Up! Look up and Fix Your Eyes on Jesus! Help me to become unyoked from the world so that I may take up your yoke, fully. I love you Jesus
Pray: “Heavenly Father, I realise now that there are some relationships in my life that do not honour you. Forgive me, Lord, for compromising the principles of your word. I repent of any wrong love that I may have and ask that you help me – by your grace – to undo this wrong love. Be my strength. Be my hope, my peace and my love, O Lord. Help me to become unyoked from the world so that I may take up your yoke, fully. I love you Jesus. Amen.”
