WALK IN LOVE


WALK IN LOVE

John 15:12 (NKJV) This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.

When Jesus says that something is a commandment, we know that He is not just suggesting it, but it is something that He wants us to do.  The commands of God are not to hurt us, but to bless us.  Wherever we see that God tells us something as a command, He is looking to get a window open in our lives, so that He can pour us out a blessing.

In this verse, the Bible teaches us that love is not something that we can choose to do if we would like, but that it is a command for us to live by.  God wants Christians to be different than the people of the world.  He does not want us being a bunch of gossipers and backbiters, but people that believe the best of one another.  He wants us to go the extra mile in love for each other.

If we choose to live by God’s command of love, it will protect us from what the enemy wants to bring against us.  Satan has no power over a person of love.  The great Apostle John could not be killed, and that is why they ended up sending him to the island of Patmos.  They tried to end his life in every way they could think of, but he would not die.

The Apostle John is known as the apostle of love.  You just cannot kill love!  Love will give you victories in your marriage.  It will give you a family that is second to none.  It will lift you up, and develop within you the staying and overcoming power that you need.

Do not look at love as some weak thing.  See it for what it is, or should I say, Who He is, for GOD IS LOVE.  Everything that God does He does in love.  He does not do anything unless it is flooded with His love.  

Today, let us imitate our Father.  He is love, and so we should be also.  Let us let this fruit of love flow in us, and through us.  When we do, it will change us like nothing ever has.

CONFESSION:  Today, I make a quality decision to walk in love.  Love is not something I can do if I feel like it.  It is a command of God, and I want to always do what He wants me to do.
