Choose to love. Love is the first command Jesus gave to His followers. Love. It sounds easy enough, but all too many Christians neglect acting lovingly. You may be one of those who is willing to admit you’re not living by the love command of Jesus. Others live as if spiritual things are foolish–going through life thinking they are Christians but not wanting to give too much attention to the things of God’s kingdom.
We must remember that the God-kind of love we’re talking about is not an emotional feeling. That’s the world’s kind of love, which can be wonderful, but it’s natural and emotional. The type of love Jesus spoke about was a supernatural love that is God-given. It’s a choice to respond to a person or situation as God would, in spite of natural emotions.
Without God’s love as the primary ingredient in your life–as a born-again believer the power of God just won’t work effectively. That means your prayers may go unanswered, and living within the supernatural direction and blessings of the Lord is something you may long for but not experience. God didn’t tell us to LOVE because it’s fun or makes things rosy. Loving others is a difficult choice. It takes effort and often goes against our natural desires. But when we choose to love with God’s love–only then is His power released in and through our life.
Jesus said, “This is my commandment, That you love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:12-13. The Bible also says that faith works by love. Not only that, but the gifts of the Spirit won’t work if you don’t have love. So why not say to yourself today and everyday until it becomes a wonderful habit, “I choose love.” Now, let’s do it.
God is good. His word is true. Please let us know about your prayer requests, as well as answers to prayer. We do pray for you. And remember, with God nothing is impossible!
