What’s It Look Like To Love Another?

The world has a concept of love and it’s different than God’s love. A human’s love is based on what you can do for me. It’s traded and exchanged. Nothing means nothing. One can’t be loved until they are loved. Most people can love yet they love conditionally. God’s love is unconditional. The things that are hindering you are the things that still sting. We live in such a selfish world that we want what we want and when we want it.

Could you be hindering the will of God?
Are you showing favored grace to others? God didn’t tell us to judge folks but to love folks. We are to sow the seeds of love. There are people out there today that are fully capable of going shopping, vacations, etc, yet they are neglecting the house of God. Nowhere in the scripture does it say that God was going to send a plaque and He wanted people to stop attending church.

Bearing all things.
What happens when you get afraid? Usually one runs from it. If something comes against us like an illness we often try to run from it. David went through troubles but he didn’t run from it. He stood up and put on a garment of praise and began to worship and praise God. He then went and tried to show others to do the same in encouragement.

2 Corinthians 6:1-10
Christians are working with God even when the going get’s tough. We don’t receive his grace in vain but in great fulfillment. Today is the day of salvation. As in the prodigal son, he thought he was doing the right thing by running away from his father. The father never gave up on him and searched and watched for him daily. We should be like the father and tell those that God is out there wanting them to come home.

We need to experience the love of God in such a way that when we leave the church house others can see they want what we’ve got. The end of time is closing in faster than ever before. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. We should be giving them what they need and that is a love beyond understanding. A love that goes beyond our values and selfishness.

We need to be patient. The journey gets harder. If you’re in God’s will then you will always be under a strain. You should be constantly asking God, what next, what do You want me to do next. There will be some things that will make you look bad when you stand up with the love of God. Let go of yourself and don’t let these things bother you.

John 15:12-13
You would fight for your family. If someone came against one of your loved ones you would take a bullet for them. Would you do this for your neighbor?

God will do whatever He wants with or without you. Wouldn’t you want to be a part of Him instead of without Him?
