Matthew 24:12

“Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.” (NASB)


“Because lawlessness (anomia: iniquity, unrighteousness, transgression of the law, wickedness) is increased, most people's love will grow cold (psucho: wax cold, wane).”


Because lawlessness and unrighteousness is increased, most people’s love will begin to wane.


It has been uncommonly cold over much of our area for the last few days. I am always amazed at the changes that take place when the temperatures drop to sub freezing. Things turn hard, they crack, they become immobile - life and fluidity are subdued. Is it not the same spiritually? In Ezekiel, the LORD referenced His ability to make a heart of stone become a heart of flesh. This is the same principle. I encourage you today to abstain from a life of lawlessness and be conscious enough to make sure that your love does not grow cold and fade in this hour. Now is the time to be filled with life, movement and purpose that is ultimately derived from the Father's love.
