Over at the blog “In His Courts,” Makesha has some great thoughts on the unity of power and love. How many times have we prayed for God’s power to intervene or for there to be miracles, and missed out on the part where actions without love are just disorderly noise.
Here’s the punch line after citing a portion of Ephesians 3:
“I think it’s extremely significant how often power and love are linked and how much this segment of scripture is referring to the power in the context of the unified body.”
The same could be said about truth. While the scriptures talk more about the joining of Spirit and truth, it’s a common experience that truth in the hands of people who do not share in the love of God can be divisive in the church.
