The love of Christ is a Love that is unmerited because we are sinners by nature, deserving death by trial, yet Jesus paid the price for salvation; therefore, through Him, we are blessed to have been given the right to be forgiven and receive His love.
The charity of Christ is unchanging, not guarded, assertive abounding in the fruits and Grace of God.
1 Peter 2:9-10
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Therefore the calling of Christ is God’s choosing to worship Him, to glorify Christ and not ourselves.
The propensity of a born-again believer is to rise in Spirit and shrink in the flesh, not the other way around. It is faith in the living God that excites the senses to carry out the exhortation of the body to rise in Christ, bountifully and boldly.
Still, God Call His people to persevere, and we see this proclamation in Hebrews 10:39
“But My righteous one will live by faith, and if he shrinks back, I will take no pleasure in him.” 39But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.”
The challenge for many is erasing the secular lines that separate the spiritual connotation of the scripture from promoting worldly achievements.
The Lord created us to worship with a meek and sincere heart like David. Bold, honorable, yet proclaiming the world’s fallen nature to save their soul and teach that through Christ, the earthen vessel is nothing more than the container needing to be filled with Christ.
The LORD blesses and favors those more so who work out their salvation with fear and trembling.
Success is not the place you arrive; success is the innate capacity to tap into your God-given inner abilities to improve others with ease.
Phillipians 2:11, And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who works in you to will and to act on behalf of His good purpose.
The Holy Spirit enlightens to illuminate with zeal and praise fearlessly pouring out the anointed oil that cures. The follower of Christ Jesus marvels at the exaltation of the Heavenly King while promoting divine healing in other earthly vessels.
I encourage every heart to seek Christ profoundly to further in love through Him, not for ourselves but for the Kingdom of God, including many.
Blessings, Beloved in Christ.
