Will We Love?

February 13, 2023

The Father asked me this morning, “How will My people ever love the world if they cannot even love one another?”

Of course, this was asked by Him, with the understanding that we do not love the things or actions of the kingdom of darkness, yet knowing He SO LOVED THE WORLD, that He sent His son, we too are called to love people.

The question was from the grieving heart of a loving Father, who watches as many, called by His name, sow division among the ranks of His army, wounding one another with words and through actions.  His eyes, filled with tears, spilling down His cheeks.

Is the Body of Christ, known by the fruit of hatred, instead of love?  This is not a passive love, but a love established in one’s life through a living relationship with Him, our lives flowing from Him.  It is a love founded on righteousness, truth, and justice, with the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23, PT), “…produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. NEVER SET THE LAW above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless”.

LAW according to Thayer’s can carry the meaning of REASON.  Love, God’s love does not flow from our reasoning, our understanding, our thinking, or our agendas.  He (He is love) transcends the natural, allowing each person we encounter to be touched with the supernatural love and power of God, who is, through us, displaying His goodness to a hurting, lost, and dying world. This flows through those who are surrendered, and who daily say, “Yes, Thy will be done, in and through me.” 

Back to His question to me this morning.  “How will My people ever love the world, if they cannot even love one another?”

If the Body cannot, or more appropriately, will not love one another, how will unconditional love flow to those who come to be set free?  Is it even possible, or just another blatant display of hypocrisy?  Dear ones, leaving what lays behind, shake off past seasons, receive a shift in former paradigms, and perspective.  Receive His love that frees and heals for yourself, watching as it melts away all fear, for in His love there is not fear, it is pure, it is lovely, that you may freely give it to others.  

May we ask Him to change our hearts.  May we ask Him to purify our hearts, not into the image we desire, but His alone.  Ask for His eyes, His heart, His love, for He loves so well, so completely.  May we ask for and then embrace His fire, which will remove all that is not of Him, melting away the dross and revealing the gold.  Pure gold, pure love.
