Let Love Rule

How will you let love rule today?

If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.​ (1 Corinthians 13:1-3)

Every Hour I Need Thee

God supplies the breath in our lungs and the beat of our heart.

Not to mention His continuous love and presence that can make an unbearable day possible. Even if we were completely perfect in every way, we still could not repay His love and kindness toward us. Place your dependence on God. Thank Him for being available to you every hour.

Take in Psalms 139:1-6. “Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; You understand my thoughts from far away. You observe my travels and my rest; You are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know all about it, Lord. You have encircled me; You have placed Your hand on me. This extraordinary knowledge is beyond me. It is lofty; I am unable to reach it.”

Love Never Fails

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. -1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Everything in this world will eventually fail us, but love, real, true love will never fail. And if God is love, then God will never fail us. Trust in God.

(An answered word problem: If Love Never Fails, and if God is love, then God will never fail us.)

Let All that You do be done in Love

As a wife I have a lot of responsibilities. As a mom I have a lot or responsibilities. As a youth leader, an employee, a church member, a Christian, a daughter, a friend… I have a lot of responsibilities. I’m sure many of you, although you might change your titles, would agree to this. No matter how much we have to do it all must be done in love (1 Corinthians 16:14).

1 Corinthians 13 has A LOT to say about love. The first three verses, in my own paraphrase, says I can do just about anything, but if I don’t have love, it’s pointless and I am nothing. The first verse says, “If I speak human or angelic languages but do not have love, I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal.” There is no better way to describe a gong or clanging cymbal but as LOUD and OBNOXIOUS. In all that I do, in my schedule that I try to keep and the items I try to cross of my list, I pray that I do not become a loud and obnoxious gong or cymbal to those around me.

Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 and evaluate yourself and your motives. Are you accomplishing all that you do because of love for God and for others? Or, is it for acclamation, a pat on the back, acceptance, financial gain, someone’s approval… Many of us will not like what we find. So, our prayer needs to be, “God, what can I do to change this?”

I’m just going to say it…there are people in my world that are almost impossible to love. I try, I really do try, but sometimes I imagine myself punching them. It’s only a sin if you act on it right? Ok. I see the fallacy in my thinking, but I know I am not alone in this. I bet every one of you can think of someone who might benefit from a good upper cut. However, when I stop and think about how many people might just get in line to punch me, things begin to feel a little different. I’m sure I am on more lists then I think.

1 John 4:8 and 19 says, “God is love… We love because He first loved us.” Praise God that He loves us just because He is love. There is nothing we could do or not do to make Him love us any less. He is the ultimate source of love.

Pray with me today a prayer of “help me love those I want to punch. Help me see them as you do Lord.” Hopefully someone who wants to punch you will be praying the same thing!

But the fruit of the Spirit is:

Love

Joy

Peace

Kindness

Goodness

Faithfulness

Gentleness

Self-control

“There is no law against these things!” – Galatians 5:22-23

I once was struggling with my salvation. I was constantly asking God, “Am I saved? Am I one of Your children?” Galatians 5:22-23 was one of the passages that helped me find the answer I was searching for.

.

But, before I go any deeper, let me say that questioning your salvation is ok. It is okay to doubt. What is not okay is sitting in that doubt and in those questions and doing nothing about it. When you face doubt don’t be lazy. Get busy and do the research. Read your Bible. Talk to reliable sources. Don’t take anyone’s word as is, but compare it to the scripture. Continuously pray asking for God’s help and guidance. As Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr says, “God gave you a brain and He expects you to use it.”

.

In my struggle, my pastor preached on Galatians 5:22-23. I realized that if I had the Spirit then I was saved. And the way to know if I have God’s Spirit was based on my fruit. I remember what my old self was like. So, I compared my old self with what I thought to be my new self, the one lead by God’s Spirt. Was I showing love? Scripture says that “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) I know I was not perfect, but was I trying to show others God’s version of love, or a more selfish, worldly version of love?

.

Joy, do I have joy even in tough situations and when I’m stressed? Paul writes to the church at Thessalonica that “for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit” (1 Thessalonians 1:6) indicating that joy is associated with God the Holy Spirit. So, to have true joy I must have the Holy Spirit.

.

Peace, do I have peace in troubling times? And where do I turn when looking for peace? Romans 14:17 says that “righteousness and peace and joy [is] in the Holy Spirit” So, to have real peace I must have the Spirit.

.

There is a long list here, so I’m not going to cover them all. But, if you are struggling with doubt and your faith I suggest you do your own research. Find scriptures that explain each fruit of the Spirit and compare your old self with your new self. Ask God for His help and guidance as you do your own research. But, whatever you do, don’t be lazy; don’t put it on the back burner. Get it taken care of asap.

Appliances fail, computers fail, most things can and will fail, but

Appliances fail, computers fail, air conditioners fail (probably fits under appliances), electricity can fail, cars can fail, even people can fail, but God’s love will never fail. As the “The Jesus Story Book Bible,” that my family reads as a devotion each night says, God’s love is a “never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love.” http://www.his-child.com

If you had to make a list of everything you didn’t want people to know, how long would it be?

If you had to make a list of everything about yourself you did not want anyone to know about, how long would it be? We all have areas of our past or current lives we keep totally to ourselves. We are all good at hiding things. But, what if one morning we woke up and those sins were tattooed on our bodies for all to see? Would it change the way you judge or evaluate others? Think you would still marry the guy you are engaged to or have the same BFFs? Flip that around and think how others might treat you now that they know! Jesus is able to see all our sins and still loves us. His opinion of us does not change. He chose to die on the cross for us… While we were still sinners, Christ Died for us! http://www.his-child.com (Shirts to help you witness to others)
