1 Timothy 4-6
-Food for thought day 270-
• Songs 1:4
• Luke 2:49
• Luke 4:18-19
Loving someone is the same as making that person your priority and also developing interests in what the person is about. You can’t say that you love God even when He and His mandate for your life are not your priority.
You must learn to run after God and His business if you truly love Him.
“Draw me! We will run after you! The king brings me into his apartments! We will be glad and rejoice in you! We will recall [when we were favored with] your love, more fragrant than wine. The upright [are not offended at your choice, but sincerely] love you.”
Song of Solomon 1:4 AMPC
You can’t run after God without going after His business.
Jesus Christ’s love for the Father was expressed by Him going after His Father’s business.
“And He said to them, How is it that you had to look for Me? Did you not see and know that it is necessary [as a duty] for Me to be in My Father’s house and [occupied] about My Father’s business?”
Luke 2:49 AMPC
It’s the same with you; your love for Christ must be expressed by desiring to be with Him and going after His mandate for you. This mandate must be your principal business.
The question is: what is the mandate of Christ for your life?
Answer: “The Spirit of the Lord [is] upon Me, because He has anointed Me [the Anointed One, the Messiah] to preach the good news (the Gospel) to the poor; He has sent Me to announce release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send forth as delivered those who are oppressed [who are downtrodden, bruised, crushed, and broken down by calamity], To proclaim the accepted and acceptable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the free favors of God profusely abound]. [Isa. 61:1, 2.]”
Luke 4:18-19 AMPC
Remember: loving God is making Jesus Christ and His mandate your priority.
Be caught up with Jesus Christ and His mandate!
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
Think and act!!!!!
