Mission of Love, Evening 3

Here’s how important it is to choose love.

“Beloved, let us love one another;

for love is of God:

 and every one that loveth is born of God,

 and knoweth God

.He that loveth not knoweth not God;

for God is love…

Beloved, if God so loved us,

we ought also to love one another…

We love him because he first loved us.

 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother,

 he is a liar:

for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen,

 how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

 And this commandment have we from him.

That he who loveth God love his brother also.”

 1 John 4:7-8,11,19-21.

 

Not loving others leaves a hole in your love for God. Your love for Him cannot be complete. It leaves you with three sides of a square and will not stand.

Prayer:

Father, you have loved me foursquare-to the heights, the depths, the breadth and length. Fill my heart with your love that I will love others just as completely. Make me a vessel to reveal your love to others.

When are you challenged in your love for others?

  1. Love isn’t always roses and sunshine. There are times when love means opening your home and family to provide a place of healing for a homeless teen that aged out of foster care and has no one to help them. This could also mean dealing with their painful past and the impact of it which can be addictions and habits that don’t align with your family, but you learn to give more than you take and to love more than you though was possible. Seeing through the lens of Love is to see the brokenness and the fragile hearts that need to be given unconditional love no matter how bad things might seem at times. In the end, everyone will have gained and lost. To lose the barriers and walls that lock people away, and keep them in fear and shame. God creates a beautiful family out of all the broken hearts
