God commands us to love one another as we love ourselves. The bible also tells us that love covers a multitude of sin. With these two statements directly from God and written in our manual for life, why do we as people, God’s people find it hard to do this? God came to me and dealt with me about none other but me, at a time I felt it was everybody else but me. God spoke to me about having the love of this world and not his agape love. See we can’t love in our own self as the world does, but it’s a fact that if we don’t allow God to saturate our hearts with his love then we will love today and not tomorrow. The worlds love comes with conditions. Love me and I will love you back, give me, make me feel good, say & do what I want and I will love you even more, when God’s love is unconditional and we should have this same love for each other. Agape love, loves those who despitefully uses us, don’t give us, lie to us, and say things that don’t make us feel good.
God loved us so much that he gave his only son that we might live and have a right to the tree of life. In turn, his son suffered for our sins, although we were and are not worthy of such a love. In our daily living we all sin and come short of the glory of God, but Jesus never fell short, and yet he gave his life as a common criminal, and shed his blood that our sins might be covered and washed away. When we walked away from God, he stood there waiting for our return while never losing the love he has for us. In our sinful state he loved us!
So, let this year bring you to your knees in repentance and a cry from your belly for God to take every stony place away in your heart and fill it with a fleshly heart filled with his love. When we walk in his love we can love past peoples faults and pray for their needs, be hit on the cheek and turn away still loving. Keeping God as the center of your being and be transformed into a God pleaser, knowing that God is the revenger of all we go through and he never allows anything bad to happen to us that he doesn’t come in and somehow work it out for our good.
God is a good god and he desires for us to sit in heavenly places while here on earth and without love for one another we can never experience God on that level. We can never go into our promises without love, and we will never enter into the gates of heaven. Purpose in your heart to love and go after the love of God so that it may fill your hearts and overflow to all manner of people.
I love you all with the love of God!
