LOVE INSTEAD OF HATE

Love is the only solution to hate, but if you are full of hate, then love cannot be manifested through you. Hatred is like a venomous snake full of poison, ready to pounce on a hopeless, and helpless victim. Hate is of the devil, and its only intention is to steal, kill, and destroy. Hatred is an infectious diseases that, if it goes unattended will totally destroy you and leads to death of some kind or another. Yes, you get temporary satisfaction for your ego, but you destroy your relationship with God and others.

In society we are so quick to hate, and seek revenge, to render an eye for an eye, when God distinctly tells us that vengeance is His, He will repay. This was why they crucified Jesus, His philosophy, and teachings, because He preached love; He told us to love our enemies, bless them who curse us, do good to them that hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use, and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).

Trust me, I know it’s not easy, because it cuts like a knife, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, it rips your heart out, and tears you apart. But God tells us to love, Jesus came and proved to us that it is possible, and do-able; look what they did to Him before He went to the cross, on His way to the cross, and while He was on the cross, yet His only response was a prayer, ‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do’ (Luke 23:34). That’s love that covers a multitude of sins (Proverbs 10:12, 1 Peter 4:8), Jesus’ demonstration of love to us and for us should propel us to love others (John 15:13); The only thing we should owe each other is love; Love worked no ill (Romans 13:8-10 KJV). God’s desire is for us to put on love (Colossians 3:14); Love will never fail, it’s the greatest thing ever (1 Corinthians 13:8). From the old to the new testament, God speaks of love (Leviticus 19:18, Matthew 5:38-45, 1 Peter 3:9), so if it possible let’s love and live at peace with everybody (Romans 12:17-18).

If you don’t know the God of love, go to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever do. I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to put His message out there. I pray it blesses you as it did me. In Jesus’ name, amen.

AGAPE LOVE

What am I living for, if not for God. If loving God  is wrong, then I don’t want to be right. People throw around this word(love) daily, as if they mean what the word dictates. Some people get married under the umbrella of love, for better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness or health, but as soon as worse, or poorer, or sickness comes they are the first to tell you it’s not going to work, or they didn’t sign up for this, the best is, when they say, I don’t love you anymore, or they fall out of love, or grow out of love, as if it’s a piece of clothes that doesn’t fit, or used furniture. But stop for a second, and think,who loves you unconditionally? and who should the love you are giving away so freely go to?

Let me explain something, that most people don’t get or understand, the origin of love is God, and it starts out with giving. ‘For God so loved the world, He gave, His only begotten son, Jesus the Christ, that whosoever believeth on Him will not perish, but have eternal life'(John 3:16), now that’s the epiphany, and essence of love ladies and gentlemen.

Gods whole character is love, and His love starts with giving of a gift. Can you imagine, if God decides to divorce us, or falls out of love with us. Gods love letter to the world (Corinthians 13), demonstrates to us what love is, not what it ought to be, and if you look at verse thirteen it tells us, ‘and now abides faith, hope, love….but the greatest of the three is love’. Friends if God, is not the focal part of the marriage, then you have problems, divorces, adultery, and the works. ‘He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love'(1 John 4:8). Most people fail to realize this scripture, ‘thou shalt love the lord thy God, with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all your mind…then thy neighbor as thyself'(Matthew 22:37-40) this places us in the third spot, or position.

Listen folks, grace be with all them that love the Lord(Ephesians 6:24),we love Him, because He first love us( 1 John 4:19), God has loved us with an everlasting love(Jeremiah 31:3), greater love hath no man, than Jesus who laid down His life for us(John 15:13), love covereth all sins(Proverbs 10:12,1 Peter 4:8)
