“The Greatest Love”
It imperative you know that you don’t need to die to express love because you are not Jesus Christ who expressed his love through death for the redemption of mankind. No other blood can be accepted, the work of redemption has been completed by the blood of the lamb who knew no sin. You don’t have to die to express love for the people you love; you need to live for them too.
We are already in that season were people fall victims out of ignorance, were they fall for lust in the name of love.
First, God the father demonstrated love that he gave his one and only begotten son for the redemption of mankind.
John 3:16″ for God so love the world that he gave out his only begotten son, that whosoever that beliveth on him should not perish but have everlasting life.
God did not just love the world, he loved the world so dearly that the gravity of his love for the world is evidential in relinquishing His one and most precious son to the world as sacrifice for the redemption of the world. Then Jesus who is the lamb for sacrifice came an demonstrated love by laying down his life without minding the cost or seeing the pain that goes with sacrifice.
Love kills pains. If you say you love someone and you still see the wrongs the person did to you, even the pains the person brought to you, such a love is inordinate. Love silence excesses, love is a coverer of flaws. Until you get to that point were you bear all things you are not loving. Your ability to conceive and endure the wounds of the person you love is called sacrifice. If your love for someone retrogress because of their inordinate actions to you then you have failed God who is love. Love fails not, it suffereth all things not one thing.
Romans 5:8 ” But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
True love is condition less, unconditional. If your love for someone is attached to a reason other than Christ is abnormal. When we show love to people, Christ should be the picture in view. Just as there should be no reason in loving someone, it is very important we also know that there should be no expectation of perfection to be seen in the one we love. Jesus Christ’s foundation must be inculcated when we express love. He gave to us when we are still in sin. We must not be a blessing to someone because of what they have done for us, Our expression of love in giving should not be attached to anything other than the sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross of Calvary in love.
Act your love today by being a blessing to someone. Give your time in prayers for the people you know and those you have not met in your life. Give help to someone and assist those who are indeed. Those we show love should not expect it or even ask for it before we give it to them. Everyone on earth has something to give, search it out and release it, by so doing you are expressing the love that Jesus showed and is still showing to the world. When we become committed in expressing the love of God to people soul winning will become easier and the blessings of God shall become evidential with us. Shalom!!.
I RECEIVE GRACE TO EXPRESS LOVE FREELY WITHOUT ATTACHING SELFISHNESS BUT WITH THE HEART WHICH FLOWS FROM THE LOVE OF GOD,🏼.
