Love needs a filter. What do I mean? I have seen many people, especially young people decide to have sex before marriage or shack up together and they feel it is okay because they “love each other”. I have seen people embrace the gay lifestyle and feel it is okay because they “love each other”. Your love for another person is not the top priority in any relationship. Are you surprised to read that? If having feelings of love for someone causes you to sin or live contrary to God’s Word that is a bad thing, not a good thing. Most are more “in lust” than they are “in love”, but even if they truly love each other, obeying and pleasing God comes first.

The filter for human love is God’s will. If you truly love God, all your other “love relationships” must submit to God’s plan for your life. Jesus said, if you love me you will obey my commandments, so if your love for someone else leads you into sin, you don’t love Jesus enough. When you wholly and completely fall in love with Jesus you will desire to please Him. Then and only then will you find the right kind of love for someone else, a relationship that will stand the test of time, bringing fulfillment and having God’s blessing.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.”

This Saturday!

At the café yesterday the topic of ringworm came up. We old guys cover topics from world news to ringworm. So one of the guys said someone took a pocket knife and was digging into the ringworm looking for the worm so he could kill it. As you may know, a worm does not cause ringworm, but it is a contagious fungal infection caused by common mold-like parasites that live on the cells in the outer layer of your skin. You can dig in there all you want, but you won’t find a worm. Sometimes having a little knowledge can save you a lot of pain.

As Christians, we must be careful not to spread misinformation that is inconsistent with God’s Word. Sometimes we are tempted to add our opinions or preferences to the Word and present them as fact. I remember once during a service when the local high school quarterback came forward and gave his life to the Lord. A lady in the church went to him at the close of the service and said, “Now that you are saved you can give up that ungodly football”. The young many left and never came back. Her opinion, which wasn’t God’s Word, did a lot of damage that day. Having Biblical knowledge can save a lot of pain. Let’s put aside our opinions and rely solely on the Word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.

Paul Heil was the very best of Southern Gospel broadcasting. When I first started my program, he was the one I looked up to for the standard. I never reached his level other than the quality of music I played. Paul was a genius at editing! He heard places in songs where he could remove a verse or chorus to cut a minute here, a minute there to make his program time out correctly. Later years, with digital editing it became easier to remove that, but especially during the cut & splice days of reel to reel tape, his skill level was HIGHLY professional!

Thank you Rodney Baucom for carrying on the great tradition that Paul started so many years ago….and thank you Paul Pitts for sharing this interview……
