Love endures long! Let the love of God arrest you


Love endures long! Let the love of God arrest you

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Love endures long…..it is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) (and) does not act unbecomingly……(1 Corinthians 13:4-5 AMP)

1-John_4-12: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

When you get to know our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, you will become more humble. When men speak in pride and arrogance, that’s proof – positive that Christ has not been manifested to them; they’re not yet acquainted with Him. For the more you know Him, the more humble you become.

The Bible says, “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 hath dealt to every man the measure of faith”  (Romans 12:3)

Some people think of themselves more highly than they should, such that they refuse to honour or recognize even those who are actually senior to them. You need to respect others for who they are for that’s the way of love.

There’re some who got offended because they were rebuked and corrected in the house of God; that’s arrogance. There’re some others, who as far they’re concerned, are bigger than everyone, and even find it difficult to greet and show respect to elderly. That’s not Christianity!

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

An arrogant person, no matter how hard he or she tries, will never go far in life. The Bible says “ For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself  shall be exalted” (Luke 14:11). Refuse to be rude, arrogant or proud. God resists the proud and arrogant man, and gives grace to the humble. Some people just don’t know why they can’t seem to move forward and make progress in their lives; it’s because their heart are inflated with pride.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Let the love of God arrest you! Refuse to allow pride or arrogance any place in your life. Learn to be humble. Never treat others with disdain, for love celebrates and honours others, it’s not rude, arrogant or inflated with pride.

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father! I thank You for giving me a heart that loves, honours and celebrates those around me. I ask that You guard my heart against pride and arrogance as I manifest Your love to everyone in my sphere of contact today, in Jesus Christ Name! Amen!
