Love Is The Answer
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:16 (KJV)
God is Love.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8 (KJV)
and – Scripture teaches that if we don’t have His love we don’t know God.
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16 (KJV)
Love gives at it’s own expense. Its counterfeit, Lust, takes at the expense of others. God gave at great expense to extend His loving kindness to you and me.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only-begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish – come to destruction, be lost – but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16-AMP. see (Isa 9:6; 1Jn 2:12)
The undeserved, limitless love that God has given to us demands that we love others, even when they are our enemies, that we pray for them and intercede in their behalf. Love constrains us and causes us to be what we would not, nor could not, be without this grace of God. We are the joints that supply and love is that measure of the Spirit that we are to supply.
Love is the answer to everything. There is no situation, circumstance or problem that can not be solved as love’s power and efficiency is applied. Love is the only power that never fails.
Love never fails . . . 1 Corinthians 13:8 (KJV)
Many waters cannot quench love, Nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love All the wealth of his house, It would be utterly despised. Song 8:7 (KJV)
It is written that without faith it is impossible to please God. Is it any wonder, then, that faith draws it’s very essence from love? It is love that makes faith work. (Gal. 5:6) Think about it. If you do not believe the One you are looking to for help and support loves you, you will not have faith that He will come to your aid. If you don’t think that God loves you, your whole perspective will be faithless.
Allow yourself to become a lover. A lover of God, a lover of the brethren, a lover of those who despitefully use you, a lover of the lost and dying in this world. Be a demonstration of the resurrected Christ. Allow His love to flow through you.
Remember who you are. You are the salt and light of the world in this hour
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; 1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
