The Greatest Power!
“And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (Corinthians 13:13)
As Christians, we’ve been charged with the responsibility to change this world; and the only way we can do that is through the power of love. We’re going to have to understand the ministry of the Spirit in love. How important it is for us to understand the love of God, and walk in it, for love is the greatest power there is. No wonder, the Spirit of God, through the Apostle Paul prayed thus: “And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God”(Ephesians 3:19).
You can be a Christian for many years, or even a preacher and not know what the love of God is. Our calling is to know and express the love of God. You don’t understand the love of God until you walk in it, for the love of God when understood is lived. Just as God manifested His love towards us in sending Jesus to die for us, you’re to express the love of God to your world. Let love show through your eyes.
It reminds me of an incident at the Healing School, while ministering to a little girl who was completely paralyzed due to cerebral palsy. She’d been unable to walk and talk for years. When her mother brought her in, I didn’t have to touch her; I just looked lovingly into her eyes and she was healed. Demons can’t stand the love of God. They check out immediately. When people see the love of God demonstrated through you, it has a potent effect on their lives.
Let love be the hallmark of your life. There ought not to be anybody you don’t like; and there ought not to be anybody you can’t love. Everyone is loveable, especially when you choose to see them with the eyes of love. Think about it: The love of God transformed a previously injurious personality as Saul of Tarsus, into Paul the great Apostle to the Gentiles. That same love power is potent enough to transform anybody; no matter how aggressive, uncooperative, nagging or rebellious they may be!
I thank you for giving me a heart that loves at all times. Your love saturates my entire being today, and by your Spirit, I’m manifesting your love to everyone around me through my words and actions,
in Jesus’ Name.
John 3:16; 1 John 4:9
