Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:7-8)
Today's Morsel: You know, when I was a kid and listened to the radio, all the music was about love. Most of the artists came out of some church. And because they had heard so much about God and His love, even though their songs were what today we classify as worldly music, their lyrics were pretty clean and spoke of the Word of God. I can remember that many of those artists even made mention of Jesus and God in their singing. For example, Don Mclean, in his song "American Pie", wrote, "Did you write the Book of Love and do you have faith in God, above? If the Bible tells you so." And then there were the Spinners, in their song, "Sadie", which spoke to a mother's love, they wrote these lyrics. "Early one Sunday morning, Breakfast was on the table, There was no time to eat, She said to me, "Boy, hurry to Sunday school; Filled with her load of glory, We learned the Holy story, She'll always have her dreams, Despite the things this troubled world can bring." But today, because most artists have no knowledge of God, because they have never stepped foot into a Sunday school, or read a Bible, their so called songs and song lyrics are all blaspheming God, oneself and degrading women. All because they have no knowledge of God. Do you know Him? When is the last time you've stood and sung an old love song to Jesus. "He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked" (1 John 2:6). He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
