Do you love me? Do you desire the best things in life to happen to me? Do you want to see me prosper? Are these questions making you uncomfortable? Why? When is the last time you put aside your pride and need to be above and not beneath to show love?
Not some anemic substandard love, the love that causes an inner movement. Not some ungodly lust, but your tongue filled with words that edify.
You have been hurt. I know. You have been lied to. You have been cast aside by someone in the church. You think because you have been hurt that closing the doors to love is the best policy. No, no. Not so.
There is nothing in life more precious than love. There is no greater power and motivation on earth. A man’s love for a woman can be so powerful that he will start a war with a nation. Ask Samson. So powerful that fear looks at it and fears. Love is relentless.
When executed properly it will destroy burdens and remove sickness. When executed properly, it will melt the hardest heart and break into tears the strong man.
God himself is love. You will never be more like God, then when you love your enemy as yourself. Remember, God rains on the just and unjust. The secret to having love is simple and hard. I have found that when I worship God in song DAILY, the anointing of God falls and empowers me to love others. It is only when God is the object of my affection that I will have the expression lived out in representation of my conversation.
