A REVIVAL OF THE GLORY OF HIS LOVE
Does the love of the Father offend you?
GOD SAID TO ME THAT THE ONLY THING THAT CAN SATISFY TRUE LOVE IS THE BENEFIT OF OTHERS.
Romans 8: 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall he not with Him also freely give us all things?
The call through the gospel of God to place our lives upon the altar of sacrifice so that we might be raised up to become a vessel within the earth that God can use to impact the lives of others offends the greatest majority of the Christian population. The natural sinful man does not like to make sacrifices because its nature is to be selfish and selfcenterd.
It’s those that follows Christ in the way of the cross through demonstrated love and sacrifice who are brought into the joy and the blessing of the power and the nature of His love.
WE WERE ALL GIVEN THE COMMAND BY THE MESSIAH GOD AND KING TO ABANDON OUR SELFISH SELFCENTERD WAYS TO SERVE OTHERS IN THE LOVE OF THE FATHER.
Where would we have been if God only thought of himself?
It should be our entire desire and passionate goal to be stripped of ourselves so we might be brought into the nature and the understanding of His love. His love should not offend us because His love is the power that sets us free. God’s love desires to empower us to walk in the glory of the life of Christ.
LOVE CELEBRATES THE GOOD OF OTHERS AND IT BRINGS FORTH THEIR VALUE.
When we rebel against the higher spiritual ways of God by persisting in our own ways then a fall will always be the result and we will always be plunged into the lower ways and darkness of the flesh.
We must allow His love to clean up and heal our hearts by sacrificing the things and desires that keeps us in bondage.
Why would we want to hold on to the things that Satan uses to destroy us and the things that produces spiritual death?
Why would we want to keep pursuing the temporary things through which we accomplish nothing and destroy our eternal goal? The call through the cross is a call of repentance to turn away from fleshly things and come back to God.
The working of the cross in the heart of the believer is a divine work of love because it liberates the heart from the desires that are used to destroy us.
The power of the cross will set your heart free from the deception and bondage of wordly desire if you embrace it and it will transform your heart into a dwelling place, a garden of God where you will experience the true fulfillment, joy and freedom of divine love.
You were made for Love, now return to Love by allowing Him to clean up your heart. Never be offended against the call of the cross through a life of self-denial because to be offended by His cross is to be offended by His love.
The body of Christ today is sick and diseased because of selfishness and only few members are doing service to spread the love of God and allow themselves to operate in the function for which we all were designed and created.
Imagine certain parts and members of your human body decides to shut down and stop functioning.
Father showed me that the body of Christ must flow, operate and function like the human body. He said that the members and organs and our entire body was put together by a God of love and are serving each other in love.
See how in agreement our bodies operate because each part does what it was created for.
Because your entire body operates in agreement with your mind.
Are we as the body of Messiah not called to operate and function under the authority of the mind of Christ?
How then will our thoughts line up in agreement with His thoughts when most Christians refuse to renew their minds by spending much time with God in His word?
How will we function successfully in agreement with the head of the body if most members want to do their own thing and go their own way?
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it in simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be tender loving one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; constant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them who persecute you: bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord.
20 Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him drink: for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
