"And it shall come to pass at that time, that I WILL SEARCH Jerusalem with CANDLES, and punish the men that are SETTLED ON THEIR LEES: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil." Zeph.1:12
Shallowness, No Deep Affection, INDIFFERENCE!
God hates these things! God will search our hearts! His light will be like a candle...and will search out our innermost feelings....
Are we cold? Are we indifferent? Are we settled on our "lees"?
This makes me think of Ez. 33:31... "They hear thy words, but they will not DO them: for with their MOUTH they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their COVETEOUSNESS."
I want to take Barnabas' words to heart from Acts. 11:23... "That with PURPOSE OF HEART (I) would CLEAVE unto the Lord!" And you? Amen!
