Christianity in Its Purest Form

I’ve been recently struggling in my relationship with God. I feel like I’m running in place. But God spoke amazing revelation to me during work about what Christianity really is about.

Christianity in its purest form is all action being done out of God’s love.

And everything done outside of the revelation and power of God’s love is religiousness. Without that revelation, we are but paupers and slaves in the house of God, and not sons, daughters, or friends. All ministry is exhausting if it has not been fueled by love. Faithfulness is an aspect of love, but it is not love.

Where there is love, there is Christianity. Where there isn’t, Christianity isn’t.

It is because God is love. It is his very nature. And if our expression of Christianity, however zealous, however noble, however ressemblant of actions exemplified by biblical characters, is without the the power and expression of God’s love, we are off. And off by a mile.

We are always to be rooted in love. Without love, all that I do is naught. For its absence makes all that God has done naught.

  • Couldn’t agree more. I like to add to such commentaries the central importance of Truth as well. The heart can get pulled in different directions based on an un-ruddered love, and many questionable things have been permitted in the modern West under the rubric of love. Love and Truth (in my opinion) are interdependent, and have equal standing in my outlook. Truth is the wellspring of justice & right action, and love encompasses it all.
