Just a few thoughts I had the other day about love when reading 1 John. Such an incredible insight into the love God has for us, an invitation to live from His love and not for it. It’s not a performance based identity with God, we can’t earn His love.
Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians to strive after love, as that is the most valuable if spiritual gifts. If we can learn to live from love, we then can release Gods love wherever we go.
So, this week, above all else, pursue love, strive after it, clothe yourself with love- His love – He doesn’t give as the world gives- no limits – no restrictions – no conditions- it’s not as a reward for what we’ve done, rather who we are- heirs and co-heirs with Christ- get ready, get excited, get into His love – it never fails, never let’s us down, never disappoints, always builds up, encourages, edifices, restores, brings us into the place where we belong. Amen.
