“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” (I Peter 4:8 ).
The number one thing that promotes growth, development and maturation in the Lord is walking in the Love of the Lord.
+The MATURE Believer will always walk in the Love of God with Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith.
+The IMMATURE Believer many times walks on the works of the flesh and thinks they are walking in the Love of God.
+1 Corinthians 13:1-3 says if you have an extensive list of good things and have NOT Love we are NOTHING.
+It also says if we have done an extensive list of good things and have NOT Love it profits us nothing.
+In other words without God’s Love in us demonstrated towards God and others we are nothing.
+Loving God and each other brings God’s Value and Acceptance to all that we do.
Wearing Love as Your Garment
12 PUT ON therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, (Bowels of Mercies) compassion, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also must you do.
14 And ABOVE ALL THESE THINGS (PUT ON) LOVE, which is the BOND of PERFECTION (and COMPLETENESS).
+Love Solidifies, Perfects and Completes all that we do for the glory of God.
+May our hearts not only be filled with the LOVE of God, but may we wear the LOVE of God like a garment for the glory of God.
Loving is Ministering God to others.
1 John 4:20
If a man says, I LOVE God, and that man HATES his brother, he is a LIAR: for he that LOVES NOT his brother whom he has seen, how can he LOVE God whom he has NOT seen?
+Why MUST we LOVE one another? Because Love is ministering God to others.
A NEW COMMANDMENT I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved you…
+Loving one another is not an option. It’s a COMMANDMENT of God!
+No one has to pre-qualify for God’s Love.
+As Children of God Love is who we are and Loving is what we do.
+In the ACT of LOVE God reveals Himself to both the giver of Love and to the recipient of Love.
+When God reveals Himself in the ACT of LOVE, things will always change for the better because God is Love and Love never fails.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
