Today we read:
-Food for thought day 93-
• Romans 5:5
• Ephesians 4:32
• Romans 5:8
Walking in love towards one another is a practice, not a confession. We can love everyone by accepting them for who they are and not the way we love or want them to be. Making people to be like us before we love them is manipulation and control, which is a form of witchcraft. Actually, we are here to be conformed to the image of Christ, not to the image of another human being.
We should not expect the man who is not born again to walk in God’s love, because they don’t have it; but as for us believers in Christ, that should be our lifestyle.
“Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5 AMPC
The Holy Spirit is the embodiment of God’s love in us. That means our hearts are encompassed with the love of God. Gifts are given for the purpose of solving a problem or meeting a need of someone.
Whenever we pray to walk in love, God will give to us an unlovable person to demonstrate His love to. It’s our practice of love that makes us grow in it. We are not called to love only the people that love us, but to love our enemies. We are not called to love carnally, but to love like Jesus Christ.
“And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you.”
Ephesians 4:32 AMPC
The question is: ”When did Jesus demonstrate His love for us?”
The Answer is: “But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.”
Romans 5:8 AMPC
It’s possible to love that way because we have His Love in us in the person of the Holy Spirit.
Today practice the love of God to the unlovable in Jesus’ Name.
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
