By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another (John 13:35 NIV).
Love is the passion of Christ. Love is what He is. If I am asked “what is love?” I would say it’s Christ.
We all recognize care, concern, encouragement, and dedication; and we say we are loved by our family, friends, neighbors and others—but do we really know what love is? Many say “we are taken care of by our parents” but only a few understand it’s the dear Lord taking care of them through their parents. Very few acknowledge its God pouring out His love through the people around them. Perspective is all that matters.
The natural mind is absorbed and enwrapped in itself. It fails to recognize the actual spiritual reasoning behind life and its events. Sadly, some people do not have close families or loved ones, yet God takes care of them through other loving people around them. In light of such earthly relations, we often fail to recognize God at work.
Also, many have a wrong sense of stating and recognizing God’s love! It’s good they are recognizing God at work, but they state it in a prideful way, seeking glory for themselves. Such judgment rules a carnal mind, and this is what the darkness takes advantage of.
We may state our abilities in a prideful way, but know that it’s all in vain. Pride is not from the Lord. When we receive our portion from God, we should not reflect God to others with a prideful mind. God doesn’t give abilities to His people in order to make others feel like less. Jesus never did that. He didn’t consider himself to be superior to others because of His abilities.
Love rejuvenates. Love enlightens because it’s from the Light. Recognizing God’s love might be difficult for some, but such realization comes from the heart and not the mind. Stay connected with the Spirit in the right way, shrugging out self-righteousness. Get wrapped in His love and stay blessed.
