His Beloved, Here is a bit of a Holy Spirit teaching today. I pray that it nourishes you in Jesus’ Name amen.
God is Love. God is all about RELATIONSHIPS. Everything springs forth from His Love because that not only is what He does it is WHO HE IS. The Lord put this on my heart today to write. Let’s see what else He has for us below:
The basis of the gospel is all about LOVE & RELATIONSHIP shown through the sending of our Heavenly Father’s Son. It is also shown through the Son’s LOVING willingness to then go (for the Father) and come (on our behalf in loving obedience).
God’s PASSION OF LOVE is displayed and proven through Lord Jesus’ life, suffering, bleeding, torturous death on the cross and resurrection. ALL BECAUSE GOD SO LOVED…
The Lord commands us to LOVE Him and LOVE one another as He has loved us. Why? SO THAT, IN ADDITION, ALL may know we belong to Him…one of the pure beautiful motives behind the Lord’s command to love one another as He has loved us is for salvation and witness to the lost.
The intended results of the display of His love through us is that once they (the world) knows Who He is (LOVE) and what He has done for them (IN LOVE & RELATIONSHIP) then they will choose to LOVE HIM BACK. They will be reconciled back to the Father (through RELATIONSHIP IN HIS LOVE through the Son) and filled with the Holy Spirit (who was given to them in LOVE and to have RELATIONSHIP with). How glorious and pure is the love of God!
Question: SO WHY IS IT then, that the majority of us seem to be more concerned with AND put MORE TIME, MONEY, ENERGY, CARE and EFFORT into learning about AND being a DISCIPLE of:
✔️ MAKING $ $ $
✔️ THINGS TO DO
✔️ BUYING STUFF
INSTEAD OF LEARNING ABOUT & BEING A DISCIPLE OF:
✔️ GET IN THE WORD
✔️ HAVING INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD
✔️ LEARNING ABOUT HOW TO HAVE LOVING GODLY RELATIONSHIPS WITH ONE OTHER
✔️ ACTUALLY WALKING IN LOVING GODLY RELATIONSHIPS WITH ONE ANOTHER
⚠️ FROM WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS it sure seems like MOST of the time, the TOP of HIS LIST seems to be at the BOTTOM of OUR LIST.
Feeling challenged yet? GOOD! Let this invigorate, excite and sober us! That’s where He wants us! We are in the last days and need our priorities in HIS ORDER. May we all have teachable, humble and obedient spirits and realize that HIS WAYS are ABOVE OUR WAYS in Jesus Name. I’m right here WITH you =)
Would love to hear what you think below in comments.
God bless you. ALWAYS in His Love and grace.
Love, your sis, Sybella Owens
