Time and time again the scriptures talks about loving God, and loving others as we love ourself. Truly, the mark of Christ upon your life is the love you have for His creation. Loving your wife, your husband, kids, siblings, parents, friends, and family is easy enough. But loving people you don’t even know and wishing for them good as you wish for your self is a step further and it can only be of God!
I must say that love is an anchor, for Christ Jesus is love himself. If you are a believer and you don’t give a shoot about anyone other than those closest to you, check yourself. You may be deceiving yourself and far from being Christ’s
Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. This is Jesus and he is LOVE!
1 Corinthians 13:13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love of God in your heart will get you through any difficulty. You will overcome and triumph over all kinds of evil with love.
By this the world will know that you are my disciple if you love one another. John 13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love for one another, not only for those in your household, but for those from without, and even the so called gentiles and children of perdition.
The chaos we see in establishments here and there including the Church is because of lack of love. Ego, selfish desires, and ambitions can never reflect Christ’s love, rather it reflect the flesh in its unbrokenness, which is of the devil.
Hebrew 11:6 And withoutfaith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
To receive anything from God then, I need to develop and have a radical faith to take possession of all that heaven is bestowing this season. God has goodness stored up for me, and you, about to be delivered! Am I ready to receive? Are you ready to receive?
Hebrew 11:1 Now faithis confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so littlefaith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
You can only be in the light, the light of Christ through faith in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. You must let Christ word dwell richly within your heart for effective transformation and renewing of your mind from glory to glory.
Friends the Lord loves you and wants to do wonders in your heart and through you in overflowing measure. Will you yield yourself today?
When you learn to love yourself, imperfection and all as God loves you, you will learn to love others equally. You are who God created you to be, wonderful and beautifully made, packed with tonnes of treasure waiting to manifest God’s glory. Just be you and allow the Holy Spirit to have His way in your life. You are perfect in the sight of God for the purpose for which you are created. Everything God created is perfect as stated in Genesis 1:31.
You are perfect and I can’t help reiterating this fact. You are a vessel in God’s hand for His purpose and His glory. Therefor relax and flow with God’s purpose for your life. You are in very good hands. The hands that created heaven and earth, the Sun, Moon and Stars. He placed everything in order, so He knows all the way to the end here and the beginning in eternity every minute details of your existence and He has you covered.
Go therefor and be your courageous self. Go and make disciples of all nations. Yes, you and you! God does have a grand purpose for your life. Oh well you didn’t know way back then! Now you know so walk circumspectively fulfilling His purpose for your life. Thank you Lord for my friends and I. We love and honor you Lord. Be magnified !
Send your love to God as a sweet smelling aroma by loving those God has placed in your path. Lend a helping hand. We can only do this when we accept God’s unconditional love for ourselves first, only then are we able to love others like ourselves.
1 John 2:9He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. 10 He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 4:20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.
Ephesians 4:32 And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.
Friends, will you show God some love by been kind and tenderhearted towards someone today. Yes, you’ve praised and worshipped God, yet Christ commands that we love. When we love others we will share our faith with them so they know and share in the unconditional love of Christ so as to be saved from eternal damnation.
There is so much ahead of us friends. There is so much untapped territories, treasures undiscovered, jewels not seen.
We need to let go of the past so we can start afresh rediscovering the beauty that lays ahead within our reach.
We only have to look inward and act out with love. Just like faith, a mustard seed like faith can move mountains, so a little love and understanding can birth so much joy, peace and harmony regardless of the circumstances.
We are born of God, which means we have love written into our DNA. When I say love, I mean Christlike love, not the world like kind of love – lust, self centeredness and covetousness! We were all filled to overflowing with these vices until we met with the Lord Jesus, and now we are a new creation, old things have passed away and all things have become new.
I have chosen to be a pioneer of a future filled with kindness, love, and respect for all beings regardless of their status. I will strive to ease the pain of hurt, rejection, shame, hatred, and all negativity that my friends are going through. I will empathise and not judge or ridicule, revealing Christ Jesus in my conduct as a true ambassador of the Gospel of Love.
Will you join me friends? Let us in harmony showcase the grace of God upon our lives as believers. Let us make Daddy, Our Father in Heaven proud of us. It’s the least we could do anyways, for we have ourselves received so much unconditional, undeserving grace – love and compassion. As we have received freely, let us give also freely, no strings attached.
