I am most grateful to God for the privilege to always minister to you in words. It has always being an awesome experience and I believe you have been richly blessed. I also thank God for your life and your desire to know Him better. Indeed, your journey with God is the sweetest adventure you can ever have and it is my prayer that you will not live any day without Him in the name of Jesus Christ!
The month of February is worldly known as a month to celebrate love and relationships. It could be relationship between couples, friends, family etc., but this usually is not the case with this kind of celebrations. Love is one of the most sought after gift asides money. The world seeks for love, everyone around including children wants to be loved and respected. Some go to any length just to get a little of this feeling called love, but even though the world has an idea of what love is, it really doesn’t understand the nature of love because it has not known Who love is and so has no idea of what it is.
Therefore, this month, I will be exposing you to the true love nature as expressed from Scriptures. Firstly, we must know that “God is love.” It means that any love expressed outside of God is fake and temporal. More so, love founded in God is not based on what a person has or gives in return, but your innermost desire to render helpful services to someone without negative intentions. God’s love is naturally selfless. The Bible says:
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us(Romans 5:8).
No one can truly celebrate or experience love without knowing who the “True Love” is – God. Until the world realises that only the presence of God in a man’s life can give the true value of love, the search for it still continues. The Bible says:
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).
Without God, there cannot be an understanding or appreciation of love. You need to learn to love God first and this you do through knowing and obeying His Word and commandments to you. It is written:
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments (1 John 5:2)
Without this, your expression of love is valueless. It is your sound relationship with God that helps you become “love” and find love. You don’t have to do or give anything to warrant God’s love. He loved you from the very day you were created and that love has no limit. It is written of us: The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee(Jeremiah 31:3).
Thus, if you or someone give a reason before love can be expressed, then that love is questionable. There are no conditions to loving the-God-way.It is naturally expressed because you have the life of God in you.
However, you must understand that it is impossible to give or receive this kind of love without first having a relationship with God. The Bible says …The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us(Romans 5:5).
The Holy Spirit is only given to believers; those who have been sanctified by the blood of the Lamb. That means, without being born again, you cannot express the God-Kind of love.
To be born again means to accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour over your life, by confessing and forsaking your sins. Therefore, if you have not done that or you might have probably walked away from the vow you made to Him in the past. You must say this prayer in faith right away:
Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through firstname.lastname@example.org, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
