Text: 1 Corinthians 13: 4.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; 6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
The influence of the society on the church, has really pushed many believers away from God.
A Christian body without love is not different from a night club.
Love has become a leap service word that is never expressed.
Most believers practice lust in the name of love.
I love you brother, I love you sister, without real evidence of compassion, care, understanding, is just an empty word.
To understand the true meaning of love, we must see the life of Christ.
There’s no love greater than a man laying down his life for another. John 15:13.
When we encounter the true love of Christ, it empowers us to respond calmly to difficulties, demonstrate patience in seasons of waiting, and sacrifice without complaint.
The power of God’s love teaches us about forgiveness.
Examine yourself child of God,
Are you holding a grudge against someone?
You need to forgive.
Are you experiencing difficulties, turmoil in your marriage or relationship?
You need to let love have it’s full course.
Love never condemns, it never points out who’s wrong or right, it accommodates, covers all mistake and sin.
It’s time to make up child of God.
Show love to that poor fellow around you.
You can show love with your resources, your time, your smile, even your attention.
We’re warned not to be like that rich man in the Bible that ignored the poor Lazarus. Luke 16:19-31.
In conclusion, remember that whoever that has refused to love, does not know God. 1 John 4:8.
1.Father teach me to show love to every creature including those that hate and persecute me.
2. Dear Jesus, let my love for you, produce patience in all areas of my life.
1 Peter 4: 8. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
