It's time you learn how to love in a deeper way.

March 31, 2019

“For the whole Law [concerning human relationships] is fulfilled in one precept, β€œYou shall love your neighbor as yourself [that is, you shall have an unselfish concern for others and do things for their benefit].” Galatians 5:14, Amplified

One day while spending time with the Lord, I asked Him why is it important to read the Bible everyday if the whole law is fulfilled in one command to love? He responded, “There’s a difference between knowing what to do and knowing how to do it.” The Pharisees and the Sadducees of Jesus’ day knew what to do according to the Law, but they failed miserably in fulfilling God’s will. They didn’t recognize their ignorance, nor did they see their inability to love people the way Jesus did.

A car dealer hands over the keys to the new owner, and says, “Here’s your new car. Now, get regular maintenance and your car will last you a long time.” While the instructions are simple, carrying those instructions out for the life of the vehicle will require discipline.

My sister, God knows you love Him with all your heart, but it’s time you learn how to love people in a deeper way. The Lord doesn’t suggest it. He commands it, and with every command He gives us, He provides the grace and the ability to carry it out. Where He’s taking you, it’s going to require the discipline of unselfish concern for others, the discipline of allowing more love pouring in you and through you, but not just any love. You’re going to need the God-kind of love operating fully in your life. The love that looks past people’s flaws and sees their need. With the help of God, you’re going to need to discipline yourself to spend quality time regularly with the Lord so He can fill you completely with His love, and you can give it away freely. God doesn’t just want you to succeed in your walk with Him, He wants you to also succeed in your relationship with people.

Prayer: Yes Lord, I hear you. Thank you for caring so much for me and others. I come to you and ask you to fill me with your love. I come to you to learn how to deeply love others as I love myself. Teach me Lord to have an unselfish concern for others and to do things for other people’s benefit. Help me to discipline myself to come to you regularly because I truly need your help. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Study Matthew 22:36-40; Matthew 7:12; Romans 13:10; Matthew 10:8

    I’m so happy to see you back! I prayed the Lord would refresh you and give you all that you need! We, as the body of Christ, need to lift you up on a daily basis for you to be refreshed and refilled! Thank you for your love for all of the sisters in the Lord, but mostly for your love for Him and your sensitivity to know when to rest so you can hear His voice! Blessings on you, sister Kesha and your precious family! β€πŸ™πŸŒ·
