And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34 GNB
Romans 5:5 says, “This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God’s gift to us.”
Someone may ask now; how will I get this Love of God to love people?
The Love of God is not far-fetched. It has been poured and is continually being poured into our hearts till we love all people with this very love. When someone is giving you a hard time, your prayer shouldn’t be that God should punish them so that they see their offence. Your prayer should be that God should pour more of His Love for them into your heart. The truth is this: brotherly love, romantic love and parental love – they all get tired and wear out eventually. The Love of God is eternal and continually renews within you.
You can only love one another with the Love of God when you have experienced this Love of God for yourself. And no one in the world can say that nobody in this world loves them – though that’s the one of the commonest lies the enemy tells us – for we have all tasted of God’s sweet liquid Love. Oh how sweet! When He pours His liquid Love into my heart; that is the greatest pleasure in the world.
Whenever we love one another with the Love of God, the Love of God in their hearts reignite too. We cannot love without the Love of God. Whatever we genuinely love, even if it’s a career or hobby, or aircrafts or reading, we love it with the Love of God. That’s why regardless of what happens to us when we’re doing something we genuinely love with the Love of God, we’re not in despair.
So I want to you to be conscious of all good things. May your consciousness be filled with only thoughts that puts a smile on your face. Learn to worship God in your everyday life. Set your affections towards God. Every other thing wears us out, trust me. Loving is effortless. Whenever you find that you’re struggling with Love, pray to the LORD in you. Learn to go on your knees more. Cultivate that habit. It makes your life more refreshed and purposeful. Now you understand when I always end my message with this;
I love you ❤
