BE GOVERNED BY LOVE

Nov 14, 2023

 Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love., [23] Against such there is no law.

The most excellent way to serve and practice every kingdom truth or reality must be founded on love. Your preaching, teaching, business, career, parenting as a husband or a wife, and even the way you treat your enemy must spring from a place of love.

Matthew 5:44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

This doesn’t make sense in the realm of men. It is until God takes you to His realm that this can be your reality. That is why we cry that God will overshadow our hearts with divine love.

What defeated Satan on the cross was not power but love. Wherever you release the love of God, you beat Satan’s hands down because he is filled with hatred, revenge, anger, and rage.

The greatest revelation of God that you can ever have is the revelation of His love. Any woman or man who grabs that revelation will never be moved at any one point, no matter what goes on around them because they know that Jesus loves them.

The kingdom of men celebrates power and authority, but in the kingdom of God, love is what binds everything together: the entire Kingdom of God is founded on love.

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these [is] love.

The only activity that will be rewarded on that day when we stand before Jesus to be given a reward according to what we have done is that which you did out of love.

Do you give because you love? Do you serve because you love? Or sacrifice because you love? What is the driving force behind your action? In this kingdom, if you want to receive your reward, the only intention that Heaven pays attention to is love.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His “only begotten Son”

The reason why Jesus came is because, the Father so loved the world that He gave. God is not in the business of showing off His power. When you see power at work, it is God using His power to love because God loves through His power and authority.

Why does God heal you? He loves you too much to be sick. Why does God prosper you? He loves you too much to be poor. For that reason, He does all those things because He loves you and likewise, love should be the reason why we do what we do.

1 Corinthians 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor,] and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

Love is the foundation of sacrifice. Any sacrifice or activity that you do in this kingdom that is not propelled from a place of love bears no weight in heaven. Men may clap for you and celebrate you but that is a very shallow living; don’t live your life before men but rather live it before God (Mark 10:30)

Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Don’t stay on the initial dosage, your love capacity must increase because there is more that the Father can allow to flow in your life, but there has to be a desire and a yearning for that.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED. WE LOVE YOU.
