🔸Have you ever heard the saying, "What the world needs now is love?" It is true. The world needs the love of God flowing through the hearts and lives of God's children. He therefore charges us through His Apostle John:
📖Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
I John 4:7 NKJV
🔸The truth is if you are saved or born of His Spirit, you know God and you are free to love and can love like God loves. You were made free to love and God will lead you into experiences to prove the power of His love in you.
This is because He shed His love abroad in your heart by the Holy Ghost in the same split second that he saved you. It is now your nature to love all the time.
❤ Because Love is now your nature, it is meant by God to be a lifestyle and as natural as breathing.
🔶Therefore if you find that you do not walk in love, you are either choosing not to release the Love of God in your heart for various reasons or you are not truly born again and lack the power to manifest the love of God.
🔶If there is ONE person you cannot and do not love, you need to stop and ask God sincerely to help you to love him/her, and then make a decision to love. The Holy Spirit in you is able to lead you into the truth about any situation you face and for example , He will show you that indifference is not love, and that God is teaching you to walk in the Love He defined in 1 Corinthians 13.
As you seek God about this, He is going to give you instructions, and if you obey Him, you will experience the freedom to love. Even if the person who is your offender or who you are offended with does not change you will feel differently about them.
👉The truth is that sometimes the most difficult relationships we have are meant for our greatest good. God's Love operation at work in you is meant to unveil this. He has made us free to love!
🔸If you are not born again you do not know God, and so your love is limited. God who created you and knows the purpose for which you were created is love. He wants you to receive His life and nature so you are able to love like He wants you to. He wants you to be made free to love.
Reflect & Respond
There may be someone you have felt indifferent or cautious about, do not love or even like. God knows this and so do you. Acknowledge this, choose to forgive if there is a need and begin to pray for them. Document what God says and obey Him.
It could also be someone God has been putting on your heart to reach out to. Do not hesitate.
If you do not have God's Holy Spirit. Seek Him today so He can release God's love in your heart.
