03. Failing in Love

The Sleeping House
by Cool Hand Luke



 

Am I your enemy
If I speak truth? (Galatians 4:16)
And the whispers in my ear
I sing from roofs (Matthew 10:26-28)
No, Iím your enemy
if I donít say enough
Oh that you could see
This truth is love

I will fail you in love
We will all fail in love
But that doesnít mean that Iím your enemy
Comfort doesnít equal love
Sugar water isnít love
But the Truth will come and set us free (John 8:32, 36)

Would you tell me if you knew that I was dying?
Some sort of parasite that got into my brain
Would I tell you that I thought that you were lying?
Ignoring evidence, ignoring all the pain

Thereís too much sugar
Too much water
Too much sugar
Too much water

Jesus, set our hearts on fire
And let it burn our flesh down to the ground
Jesus, set our hearts on fire
And burn our flesh to the ground

Am I your enemy?
Am I your enemy?
Iím not your enemy?
Iím not the enemy!



Behind the Song:
"I have always liked Galatians 4:16, which says ďHave I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?Ē Itís tough, honest, and kind of sounds like a smooth line from a movie. Over the years I have become more and more convinced that loving people is not often related to making them feel comfortable. The gospel is hard, and it refines us. We all need it. We all need to be reminded of it even when we think weíve got it.

Iíve made poor decisions over the years, and I know I have felt the most loved when someone had the courage to call me out on it. Even though it is hard to swallow at the time, I always see the value of rebuke and reproof, and it sets apart those who really love me. Conversely, when someone says, ďI was really worried about you,Ē after Iíve made a huge mistake, I want to scream, ďThen why didnít you say something?!!Ē Loving people is the hardest thing to do, and yet itís the second greatest commandment. We will all fail in loving one another, and there is grace, but telling the Truth of the gospel will never be failure. It is far better than comfort and it will likely cost you that and more." - Mark Nicks (Cool Hand Luke)
