Get out Stay out Is Love


Get out and stay out is a mindset of Love.

At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. But he said to them, ‘I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.’ So he continued proclaiming the message in the synagogues of Judea. Luke 4:42–44

Get out and stay out is spreading Love.

Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there. They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel — because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth. Genesis 1:1-9

Get out and stay out is Love.

As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matthew 9:9-13

Get out and stay out …

Is Love:

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-38

Is Love:

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbour. Therefore love is the fulfilment of the law. Romans 13:8-10

Is Love:

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. Galatians 5:13-15

Is Love:

If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbour as yourself,” you are doing right. But if you show favouritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. James 2:8-9

And how far away are we talking here?

A person living next door to or very near to the speaker or person referred to
A person or place in relation to others next or near to it
Any person in need of one’s help or kindness

  1. And it is only when we are in a close relationship with Get Out that we can get our pride out of the way long enough to love our neighbors. Including the guy with the yapping dog. Like the format. be blessed and have a wonderful day.

    Much love Tom

    • Tom – love you man! I am chuckling (well a lot louder than that!) at your comments about the yapping dog! You have one as well?? I have earplugs!! Serenity with earplugs!! 🙂

      ((hug))

  2. Ruminating on this one, Paul, though I must say, Tom’s comment directed my rumination to a terrific place! 🙂 Get out of myself, get out of my thoughts, get out of my pride, my desire to be right. Get out of my way, get out of others’ way to Him, get out of God’s way, so He can accomplish His purpose through me.

    • Hi Susan – the Incest and 2 x Get Out Stay Out’s rolled off like barrels down a chute. Tom is the man! Loved his words. And then you come along and add another dollop of wise love.

      You just brought back my picture of that strand of barbed wire again!

      Thank you!! 🙂
