Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing Jehovah-Jireh…
Love, the greatest giveaway gift of all times!
“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:16–19, NIV)
Two wrongs don’t make a right, but two rights make a love relationship! What is the foundation upon which a right relationship between people and God is built on? “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4–7, NIV)
Our greatest need is to be loved! We can have all the money in the world, we can live in a 100 room mansion with the finest of furniture, we can drive the most expensive car made, we can have our dream job, we can be as fit as the finest fiddle, our lives can be a trouble free as a life can get, but if we don’t have real/true love we are just an empty shell! It has been said that love makes the world go round, around who or what? Jesus of course, Jesus is at the center of everything everywhere! It is through our love for Jesus, our love for others, and our love of self that gives meaning to life with all its complexities, adversities, and blessings.
Whosoever has love has a rock solid foundation and have everything they need to build their life upon. Love is the greatest giveaway gift ever! Because those who give love away will get love in return! Do not let the sun go down today without giving as much unconditional giveaway love as you can! It will come back to you in bucket loads!
“Faith isn’t hoping for the best life has to offer, Faith is anchoring oneself to the Best God has to offer!”
Grace and PEACE,
