Moving Into The Future
If we are to move into the future and thrive we must walk in love. That’s why I pray you know that to walk in love is to walk in God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8 (KJV)
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)
God can never fail because Love never fails. You and I can never fail if we stay in the love of God.
“Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].” 1 Corinthians 13:8a (AMP)
Love among the believers is a big thing to God and should be a big thing to us:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca (air head), shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Matthew 5:22-24 (KJV)
Too often we have “Ought” against our brothers and sisters in Christ. We think that, “they ought to have done it this way,” or, “They ought not have done what they did,” or “They ought not to have said what they did.”
In reality we ought to forgive. We don’t know what they are going through.
Next time you are tempted to be offended and have “ought” against anyone, remember how much you have been forgiven by Christ Jesus and the Cross. Consider the sin in your life that the blood of Jesus has completely washed away. Look at everyone through the blood. It changes everything.
