Equipping Your Reimagine Journey
“The difference between duty and love is that the first represents Sinai and the second Calvary.”
- Richard Braunstein
Washed in the blood of the Lamb, the believer discards worldly garments and dons a heavenly wardrobe.
The old evil nature is exchanged for brand new clothes with the Lord Jesus Christ’s designer label—
tenderheartedness instead of steel-cold armor, humility rather than street-smart arrogance.
Slipping an engagement ring on our finger, we prove fidelity to the Lover of our soul.
Love is not the hottest fad with the people who are all wrapped up in themselves,
but it is high fashion and a stylish outfit for people suited up for worship.
Love is the most critical apparel, to be worn on every occasion.
Love for Christ is our response to a clear vision of Calvary.
Love for others is our response to Christ’s love for us.
Loving God and others is not a duty, but a delight.
Sinai points out our sin—Skull Hill our Savior.
Christ's love is the way to the truth of life.
“God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.”
1 John 4:16 NLT
