Love isn't just a sappy emotion or only a thing for romantics. Love is a powerful force that has the potential and ability to change the world when released.
The bible says, 'Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.' (Song of Solomon 8:7)
Jesus demonstrated love's power when He walked the earth and revealed what love looks like. He openly embraced everyone who came near him—loving the unloving, the rejected, the rich, the poor, widows, prostitutes, both the sick and the healthy. He made time for women, children, the young and the old, for beggars, soldiers and community leaders. Nobody was excluded from His compassion and love.
Jesus taught something that many of us fail to realise. It's that "faith works by love". Love is like the on switch, the activation button to our believing, seeing our prayers answers, miracles happening and experiencing heaven on earth. Love makes all things come together and function as they should. Through love, Jesus healed the sick, raised the dead, opened blind eyes and deaf ears. He delivered people from the power of evil and restored life and hope to those who were broken.
If we are to live walking in the truth, we must not only seek to be people who believe; we also seek to be people who live a life of love.
Far too often, we can miss walking in love and wonder why things aren't working. But if we are going to build strong lives, we also need to build strong foundations. The foundation of trusting and believing what God says, is love.
"We can make all the confessions we want to. We can quote the Bible day and night. We can fast and pray, and we still won't get anything if we are not walking in love. The Word says faith works by love. But if we're not walking in love, our faith won't work!" (Kenneth Hagin)
When Jesus walked into the room or down a dusty street, love emanated out of Him. Love drew people; love healed people, love won. In the same way, Jesus' love in us is designed to flow out of us so much so that when we walk into a room, people will know we are living in love!
Love's capacity resides inside all of us, for we are created in the image of love. And when we get connected to God, all His love, ability, and compassion flow from Him into us—enabling us to love as He loves.
Jesus knows it. That's why He said to all those who follow Him, "Go, live the love life; tell everyone near and far the good news that they are loved, and that love's power always wins, and it will set them free". (Mark 16:15)
"If you live in me and what I say lives in you, then ask for anything you want, and it will be yours". (John 15:7)
"There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love". (1 John 4:18)
Prayer: Lord, please help me to live the love life. To let love's force and power flow out of me to others, causing miracles, healing and restoration wherever I go. Thank you that love always wins. In Jesus Name Amen.
