God’s Amazing Love
“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.(Colossians 3:14)
Paul wrote Romans to give us direction, that we are to use love in our interactions with each other. “Agape” an unconditional “God” love.
Now imagine being locked in a room with twenty people. Unable to get out until all are of one mind together. Each person has their own idea of how to solve the situation. God asks us to be of one mind.
Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus. (Romans 15:5)
If you have twenty people who think they have the solution, that door will never open. This is very much how the world is today. Everyone has an opinion and thinks their opinion is right. When we take out us and place God in the equation things can change in a huge way. I call this the “G Factor” the God factor. Paul gave us a formula sent form God to become one with all in Him then laced it all with Love. One key factor is to be humble, something rare in the world today. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6)
In order to be of one mind we have to be humble and have a servant heart. This is love in action.
“But I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you.” (John 13:34)
If the world could put this into action, what a wonderful world this would be. In order to know this kind of love you need to know the Loving God. Asking Jesus in your life and He gives you many gifts all free and paid for by Jesus. The agape love is from God. Agape love is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love, the kind of love Jesus has for His Father and for His followers.
That is the key to how we serve one another. This love takes out the our judgement of others. It allows us to want to serve others, forgive, encourage, learn and enjoy the fruits of the Spirit in your life.
The Fruit of the Spirit is a term that the apostle Paul uses to sum up nine visible attributes of a true Christian life. They are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22).
My hope is that you have the Love of God. If not you might consider this wonderful gift, paid in full by the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. He offers this gift to you just for asking Him into your life. It’s the ultimate gift, forgiveness and eternal life in heaven.
“The shape of God’s true love (Agape Love) isn’t a heart. It’s a cross”
Dear Lord, Please forgive me for all the times I have forgotten Your love. Give me the power to overcome sin and to seek You with all my heart. Teach me through Your Word and guide me by Your Spirit to be able to love others as You love me. Thank You for the precious gift of salvation. Thank You for making a way for me to be cleansed of all my sins. Lord, if I have sinned against You today, forgive me and help me live for You in all I do. Father, I stand on Your Truth in 1 John 1:9 that says if I confess my sins, You will cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Wash me clean and use me for Your kingdom today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Please pray this prayer for Repentance, Salvation and Eternal Life with Jesus)
Father God, I am truly sorry. I repent and ask You to forgive me. I want to follow you and ask you (into) or (back into) my life. I acknowledge that Jesus Christ died on the cross for me all my sins are forgiven in His name. I repent and cancel all access to my life by evil spirits. I claim the blood of Jesus over me as my protection. I command all evil spirits that have entered my body or mind, to leave me now in Jesus’ name. I now make a new commitment to guard my eyes and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I will walk by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I will work to take control of my body and anew my mind, I will depend on the Holy Spirit to help me accomplish this, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
