Love is defined as a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person. Love is not just a theory, a message or just a word you throw around. Love is something that can be seen and felt. It can be giving and it can be withheld. The real power of the gospel message is “The Love Message”. God gives us a free gift of acceptance by His grace. Christ wants you to love one another just as He loves you. You have to walk in the fruit of the spirit. Love is the most excellent thing we can do. We’re not called to in-reach, we’re called to outreach. Meaning we have to help others!! If love has no action then it’s not good. Anybody can converse about love but when it comes down to including it in our daily lives we tend to back off! Love doesn’t mean you have to let everyone walk over you. When people make you mad, don’t stay mad. Don’t try to get revenge. Revenge is a poison to your life. 1 Corinthians 13:4 says “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud”. God doesn’t give up on you and is patient with you non-stop. God wants us to continue to be good to those who hasn’t done anything for us. Love never gives up on people. One of the main reasons people don’t walk in love is because it’s an effort. It will cost you. No not cost as in money but it will cost you time, effort, & pride. Love is the highest form of spiritual warfare. Keep this in mind “show and tell” not only do we need to tell people about Christ love but we need to show people the love of Christ. If you have not loved then you cant gain anything. Before you actually begin to spread Gods Love, build a relationship with God, learn yourself & learn to accept you for who you are. If you feel like you don’t quite know how to love others ask God to teach you. We may not know how to do things naturally but we will learn from His teachings. Learn to impact someone else life. Rather it’s a good deed, a compliment, or even a smile. Confront when God shows you and wait on God when He tells you to wait on Him! Rejoice when right and truth prevails. Love bears up under any and everything. It will melt the hardest and coldest heart. Pursue love and go after it with all your might. Learn how to live with love. Pray that God makes you a blessing wherever you go. Leave the excuses!! Indifference makes excuses but true love always finds a way. Learn to love through God first. He will test us for awhile to sincerely see if we are actually practicing what we are learning. Yes it may be hard to abide by His words but remember you cant teach the love of God if you’re not loving like Him. Take care of God’s business and He will take care of yours. Everyday before you go out, receive God’s love and pray that He helps you to love more like Him.
