Let love be the oars of our boat
Colossians 3:14 - And above all these things put on charity (love), which is the bond of perfectness.
Just of late I saw a whole ministry which the Lord bought together, just crumble down all because it was not based on love. The irony of it is the leader of the ministry mostly preached about love.
Everybody knows love in its second and third states but the root of love; its understanding has not been understood.
THE ROOT OF LOVE IS CHARITY - to prosper the other person or individual.
God created us only for one reason - to prosper us. He gave us his only Son also - to show us the path to prosperity. His Spirit dwells in us to help us prosper - walk on towards prosperity, the path Jesus showed.
We being God's children having the nature of God in us, therefore we should also imitate Him in all our doings. Everything we do from the least to the greatest should help others grow - firstly in spiritual and then in worldly areas.
Love does not mean to do one great thing and then forget. Love is in small and consistent things that one does over long periods.
If life is a river and we are traveling on it, our boat should be truth and the oars - love.
We should love one another but above all we should love God - promote or do all for glory of God.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are love. Everything You created and planned is based on love and You manifested this love in the living sacrifice of your only Son coming as mere man and showing is the path unto You. Lord, show us to show You in us unto others by operating in true love.
This we ask in Jesus' Name, Amen.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
