What's Love Got To Do with It??


Love has to do with everything when it comes to God.

His whole purpose of creating this earth and all that is in it - particularly man - was love. He loved us so much that even as He already knew that we would disobey Him and be removed from the Garden of Eden, He made a way through His Son, Jesus, to bring us back to intimate communion with Him.

As I have been reading in 1 John the commandment from Jesus to love one another - to love our brothers and sisters in the Lord - has been putting this resounding sound in my ear and spirit.

Why would the Lord put such an importance on loving each other? He even puts the important's of loving to men when instructing them to love their wives as Christ Loves the Church.


God is love.

Even in 1 Corinthians 13 - the Love chapter...(paraphrasing) I can do many great things for the Lord but if I do not love they are all nothing - I am nothing.

As I have been studying on love and working on this post love has been a repeating part of messages at church. God is wanting to show us His love and as we receive love from Him we love others. The Lord is pouring out an abundance of the Holy Spirit upon His people - those who are willing to sit and be in His presence.

God wants us to love one another because they (the world) will know we are Christians by our love for one another. Love in action toward your brothers and sisters in the Lord is what "speaks" out to the world. The world is not know for it's kindness to one another it's all about me, myself, and I. And sad to say the Church can be like that as well, but it's not how we are supose to be.

Dean Sykes came to my church today and talked about being a Son/Daughter and not an orphan to the Lord. If you feel like you are an orphan you are alway seeking for that approval and trying to work for the love that is freely given from the Lord. When you know that you are a son/daughter you know WHOSE you are and are free in recieving love from the Lord and giving love to others.

More on this soon, but I have to take care of my daughter who has a high fever still.

Be blessed!
