Cold and Calculated Hearts Dot the Landscape of This World
Matthew 24:12 (KJB) And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
This scripture verse was written primarily to the Jewish people. It is a description of how hard and cold their hearts will be in the end times. Though this verse was recorded in God’s Word in describing His own people in the last days, it can also apply to the stone filled hearts of lost men living in this world today.
It is a sad truth that there are many hard hearts present in this world who are shuttered from recognizing or following the truths of God. Not knowing God or having a desire to apply His truths cause many people to shun the truth and be cold and unresponsive to Him. Lost people lack a spiritual union with God, are spiritually desperate, and abound in sin and cling to the spiritual sourness of the god of this world.
Not only does this spiritual coldness affect his or her relationship with God, but lack of eternal warmth affects every relationship, now and forevermore.
It is true, you can tell a child of God apart from a lost child who chooses to be associated with the god of this world by his love, or lack thereof. Fervent love is the main ingredient of spiritual supernatural glue that makes a child of God stand apart from the lost and calculating cold hearts at work in this world.
