TOPIC: STOP DRAMATIC LOVE

*Read I John 4:20*

*MEMORISE*
He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me’”. (Mark. 7:6).

*EXPOSITION*
In films and drama, we see one person acting different roles other than their original personality. Those who have hatred for one profession have turned to be the best actors of that profession. That is drama for you. Drama is a PLAY for theatre, radio, or television. It is an exciting, emotional or unexpected event or circumstances; a specific mode of fiction.
It is very common to hear, most especially among the youths, - singles, “I love you.” What do you mean when you say a weighty word? Love should be demonstrated not defined. The following 6 Greek words with their renderings would help us: eros (sexual desire), philia (brotherly), ludu (playful), pragma (longstanding), philantia (of self), storge (of child), agape (of soul-unconditional love).
It is a pity today, many believers say they love God but never love their brothers, sisters, spouses, siblings, colleagues, etc. We are only acting drama when we fail to show love or compassion to others. Do you take actors in movies seriously, most times? You know they are probably lying about their true characters, or purely a cheat. Why would a Priest ignore his duty of caring for the sheep in the story of the Good Samaritan (Lk. 10:33ff)?
Why is divorce and battery rampant in families today? Christians say and teach what they are not. If we are sincere, let us first do what we want to teach people (cf. Ezra 7:10; Acts 1:1). Many believers are hypocrites, merely acting ‘dramas’. We must start to see God in our neighbours (Mk. 12:30, 31).

*PRAYER POINTS*
1. Lord, help me to be sincere with myself, my spouse, and You.
2. Father, plant agape love in the heart of every unit that makes up the family, in our churches and society.
3. Lord, remove the spirit of deception from our leaders, both in Church and politics.

*EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Leviticus. 4:21 – 6:30; Matt. 26:59 – 27:5*

Good morning and happy new day. May God's unfailing love usher us into our glorious goodness, in Jesus name Amen

The second coming of Jesus is around the corner. Be prepared!
