What Have You Done With Love

“We have found out that God is Love and so the New Birth is the impartation of this Nature of the Father. We become children of Love. It is a Love Family into which we have been born. Paul speaking in Rom. 5:5 says, “The love of God has flooded our spirits”; absorbed us; taken us over. (Weymouth.) This Love Nature is the law of the New Creation.

John 13:34-35: A new commandment I give unto you that ye love (agapa) one another, even as I have loved (agapaed) you, that ye also love (agapa) one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love (agapa) one to another.

This Love Nature must be developed as you develop your faith life. As you give Love freedom to grow and act as it naturally should, it will gain control of your whole being. It must be fed by the Word of God; it must express itself in action.

Matt. 4:4: Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Instead of letting Love have its perfect sway and control, we have limited it. We have forgotten that Love will make a man a success. It will put him over where nothing else would make him a victor. Love never fails. It is the Master-ruler. It will lead a man out of selfishness, out of weakness and failure into the very strength and ability of Christ.

There is no force in the world that it cannot dominate. It makes us wanted. It makes us a blessing. It enables us to take Jesus’ place. I have sometimes wondered what would happen if a man dared to go the limit with Love. Some have neglected it, acting as though they did not have it; utterly ignoring -its very existence, and yet they want the Father’s help in time of need. Love must be enthroned in the heart. It must govern the life.

  1. A good post with some great thoughts! Thank you for sharing the fact that love is at the very essence of Christianity. This is how people know we belong to Jesus, that we love one another!

    1. Thanks Steve for reiterating those words of truth & wisdom.
      Many times we have mental knowledge of things but we don’t allow them to enter our hearts and transform our being.
      Anyway, this is a process/a journey: for those who haven’t started, we all just need to take steps and keep taking them.

      Many Blessings and thank you.

      1. The words you speak are so true. We may know what our Lord wants, but we don’t live it. We don’t take His commands into our hearts and apply them to life.

        Transformation is a process, but in order to get there, we do need to start making the effort. Another “gem” of a comment which you have made! Thank you,
        Steve 🙂

  2. “This Love Nature must be developed as you develop your faith life”

    Which seems to mean we have to do more than just sit around waiting for it. We have to develop it, work on it. even train our selves to do it. Love is action as much as it is feeling.

    We act, and our feelings may or may not follow, We are, nonetheless commanded to act. Whether we feel it or not. That’s tough and requires some discipline on our parts.

    Good post, friend.

    1. Exactly Wally!
      More than anything Love is action. It’s what we do – patient, kind, not boastful, not holding grudges, endures all things, etc.
      And as you said, most importantly, we have to do it whether we feel it or not.
      That’s exactly why we’re disciples. A disciple is a disciplined one; this doesn’t come without training one’s self. (See, I’m repeating all you’ve said).
      Thanks much and great comment.

    Love that. Well said!

    1. Thank you Julie. This righteousness, this love in action is beyond the capacity of the human mind to comprehend… and so we lay hold of it by our spirit.

      Stay Blessed.

    1. Such deep truths and wisdom in this comment David, thanks very much for sharing it.
      Absolutely love it – love is our greatest need and our greatest gift to others. It comes from God and flows to God and others.
      I’m blessed just re-writing it.
      Thanks much!
