No Culture Against Love
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law
All people are the same when it comes to love; they feel and react to love the same way. Love changes them. It brings everybody to the same plane, irrespective of the culture. There’s no culture against love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” If you walk in love towards people, they’ll be compelled to sooner or later respond the same way, because love begets love. When you understand the love of God, you’d realize that it’s the greatest power in the universe. It goes beyond cultural divides, religious barriers, ethic differences, and social stratifications. The love of God can reach anyone, and melt the hardest heart.
Train yourself to walk in love. It’s a conscious choice you have to make; it’ll transform your life. Tell yourself, “I’m going to walk in love, no matter what.” In John 13:34, Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” There shouldn’t be anybody you can’t love. The love-way is the way of victory; therefore, you must love everyone genuinely, even when their actions aren’t deserving of love.
The Bible tells us that God demonstrated His love for us, while we were undeserving of kindness: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Therefore, as His beloved children, we’re to love like Him: “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour” (Ephesians 5:1-2).
To walk with God you’d have to love like Him. 1 John 4:7-8 says, “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. Let your language be consistent with the God-kind of love; let your life be the out-shining of His love.
My life is the expression of the love of the Father in my heart in Christ Jesus. I abound in love today, towards those in my world, and beyond, and declare that my heart is established blameless and in holiness before the Lord, for His love is perfected in me,
in Jesus’ Name.
