What is Love
What is Love
Are we truly comprehending the meaning of love; it’s purpose and what it represents? Many of us are learned, we have degrees, we say we believe and we say we understand. Some of us even stand before man and teach on Love, yet are not willing to walk in it by being an example of it. We as believers of Jesus, who have professed that we know that He has come in the flesh and is God, should know and do better, yet many of us still walk in carnality. What is carnality? Carnality is pertaining to or characterized by the flesh. If we operate in a carnal mind, we are therefore not being led by the spirit of God of whom we profess daily.
“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:25).
God is not bias, “for there is no respect of persons with God.” (Romans 2:11). God is love, love knows no boundaries…not gender, race, status or title.. You see, love is pure, it is not flawed, it is not tainted with the things that our flesh is allowed to dictate to us. Love is not flawed because Jesus is not flawed. Here this children of God: When you mistreat a child of the most high, (your brothers and sisters) and you profess to be a part of the Body of Christ, which is one; when do we become aware of what it is we are really inflicting upon our very own selves. The Word of God plainly states to “touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm.” (1 Chronicles 16:22, Psalms 105:15).
Let brotherly love continue. (Hebrews 13:1).
“Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm”, sounds like a command to me. We should pray for greater discernment, so that we will know when we are in the presence of God’s anointed. I am not saying revere the individual, but the Christ on the inside of that individual, but “love” the “person” just the same. We don’t get to pick and choose who we think should be anointed to do a work for the Lord, or who is or isn’t a prophet. That is all in God’s doing. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” So you see, we have nothing to do with it, except accept His will for our lives and what He has purposed for us, and if that is putting someone in our pathway that we may not approve of, let us truly examine ourselves, so we will not fall into a reprobate spirit.
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. (1 John 4:7).
Love (let us keep in mind, who love represents) does not fit into cliques. It does not care if you are rich or poor, thin or what I like to call myself “fluffy” and you do not have to look or dress a certain way. Love accepts you as you are, whether it’s bruised or broken or pretty and shiny. Love doesn’t care if you come with or without jewels. I will end this with a scripture that we should always remember and let it be a reminder for us in times when we start to think more highly than we ought to think; He says, “I come not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1 Peter 1:16).
