Luke 6:35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Brother’ and sisters, do not show fear or refrain from being who you are. As your kindness and authenticity make you shine above the rest. Being well-mannered and articulate in love surpasses all things superficial and worldly. It is the very thing that makes your head stand out above the rest.
It is by the show of unfailing love for all people that make the Lord’s heart sing. It is the very thing that insights newness and growth in others. Being a spokesman for God’s love permits others to lay down their guard. Frequently people pretend to be who they are because they are hurting inside. They may have endured something along the way that led them to create this fake persona. It protects them from being seen as damaged—Somewhere down the line, others tore them down for their gifts, so they hide them—the devil is cheap to destroy God’s goodness, but God’s people are actively teaching people it’s ok to be you. Frankly, it’s more than ok but required of you to be furiously fabulous in Christ.
In saying that, I know too well what I speak. By the grace of God’s mercy, today, “I AM FREE,” to be me, and so are you in line to shine.
Here are a few love fun facts: love is as universal as the Creator of goodness—He joins and doesn’t separate. He heals and doesn’t break. He fills and does not empty—Everything in creation is founded on love, which the greater good of all is in mind. We mustn’t ever deny God’s perfect plan, and to ease your heart, let’s take a look at what the Lord says.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its way; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophesies, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
There it is! Our free pass to love. So today, let’s get out there and pour out that agape love. Step out on the line to promote God’s goodness. We do so by giving a compliment, holding a door, telling a stranger how beautiful they look.
How about trying this on for size? Say, “God Bless You.” I find it amusing the look of terror in the eyes of some when I say, “God Bless you.” The look of bewilderment because, sadly, no one says it openly anymore. I tell every person I come across, “God Bless You,” and their reactions are often priceless.
At times their eyes bug out, or they say, “ok,” or possibly, “ thank you.” That’s when I say, “what, you aren’t going to bless me back—I need blessing too.” Immediately it causes both of us to laugh, and they say, “God Bless you.” However, if not, Dust off your feet and keep it moving.
I have to admit; I am laughing now because as God is my witness, it’s true, but unfortunately, for some, the world has become so desensitized to love that ignorance is more straightforward, so they submit to the devil’s way. But don’t you do it! Show Christ’s love wherever you go—don’t back down from kindness. The love of God is the secret key to the revival of the heart.
It takes beautiful people like “you” to pour out the oil of joy and gladness. To loosen up, those “squeaky” wheels stuck on a snarl. People will come around, eventually. So be generous with your words and gracious in your tone, and never feel ashamed to act out in God’s goodness. The only one who hates love is the devil’s drones, and honestly, do we care what they think!
I say this as a statement, not a question. But the answer to the question, if you perceive it that way, is NO!
The Lord has a goal these last days; he desires that all people see each other as he sees us.
“With A Love That Sees No Difference.”
If the squirrel in the image above can get it right, so can we. I like to think that the human race is more intelligent than a rat with a fluffy tail.
Listen, America, there are twenty-four hours in a day, sixty minutes in an hour, and thirty-six thousand seconds within an hour. What is your excuse not to love?
The truth is— you have all the time in the world.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is LOVE.
God Bless you, and I love you, church.
