Good afternoon grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Today we are discussing love and God tells us how He loves is how we are suppose to love.
John 15v12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
When we hear this statement from our Lord how has he shown His love for you?
Is it unconditional love, a love that no matter who a person is or what a person as done Jesus shows love with forgiveness and mercy?
Is it the love of truth, a love that does not hide His truth from you about your sin without finding fault or blame?
Is it the love that he died and laid down his life for you, so you could receive the gift of Himself that changes you into His image of who you truly are?
Is it the love that gives you a glorious and saving grace relationship with Him that conquers and separates you from the fallen world?
Is it the love that gives you all you need of Himself so you can have all you need for this life?
Is it the love that heals and gives life to your soul, body and Spirit?
Is it the love that opens the door to eternity so you can live for Him and with Him forever?
If this is how He has shown His love for us through the Spirit of God are we showing the same love for others by His Spirit proving Himself living through us?
Do we show unconditional love and mercy no matter who a person is or what a person as done when people ask for forgiveness from us or when they don't do we still show forgiveness?
Do we love people enough to tell them the truth of their sin without finding fault or blame?
Do we lay down our lives for our Father's will to be done by putting others before ourselves and give Him the glory of making us who we truly are?
Do we show His love by His love and faith changing our inner person by His saving grace that changes our lives that pours out to others changing theirs?
Do we show His love giving us all we need for this life by His healing power of grace he gives us every moment?
Do we show His love is powerful enough to give life to our bodies, soul and spirit to make them whole and complete?
Do we show that we are full of His gift of faith giving us full assurance that he has opened the door to eternity for us to live for Him and with Him forever!
Is the love in us self-seeking, finding fault, bitterness, self-pity, jealousy or accepting days of sorrow and depression?
If you do not have the desire in your heart to love as He loves then you need to ask yourself is His love in you?
Is His love changing you daily or are you staying the same? Does His love grow and prove itself daily? Ask yourself today, "Am I empowered by the Holy Spirit that gives us His love that compels us to let His love, love in us and through us? If the answer is no then turn to Him now and ask Him to show you His love and to empower you with His so you can be who you truly are made into His image daily showing and proving His love that lives in you. If you truly want to know His love then go to Him now and He will show you and keep proving His love every moment in everyday as you remain in it!! Don't let His love go because He never lets it go from you! We will thank Him and praise Him for His love everyday together from this day into eternity! If the answer is yes than praise Him and thank Him with me for His love shining through you since the day you received Him into eternity! I love you with all the love He gives me for you!
