God’s Love, Holy Spirit and the Church

Good Morning everyone,

Love, it's a word we've all heard, we've all said.

Love, one of the most over used words in the English language today.
We’ve all heard others use it, freely, unemotionally, exclaiming I love that song, that outfit, those shoes. I love cake and ice cream. I love your hair.

In fact, whether we admit or not, we have all likely even used those very same words ourselves.

We’ve even used love towards people, I just love her. Or I absolutely love him.
Words often used to describe one’s favorite actor or actress. Or perhaps the lead singer in their favorite band. We’ve all done it, including myself, at one time or another.
Oh stop trying to act guiltless, you know you have too.

But I ask you this, how can say we ‘love’ that person, without actually even knowing them or anything about them? What they’re like, their interests, personality. We can’t!

The motivation behind God’s love for us, is when we see how much God loves us, we as servants, should want to express and share that love, which we have been shown, to others. It is one of the central properties of His love, to love what is loved by the One we love.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

The love I'm speaking about here is first of all the love that Christ has for His own. We, as believers, have felt His love toward us, and now that love is shed abroad our hearts by the Holy Spirit, which He has given to us.

But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.”
Romans 8:9

The testimony of the entire ministry of Christ, is one of loving, helping and encouraging others. 

"And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them." John 17:26
His famous prayer, John 17 is a model of concern for others. When we have experienced Christ’s love, we must share it with our brothers and sisters.

In fellowship of the Spirit, we’re speaking about the unity that all believers should experience, because we’re all indwelt by the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit who dwells in each on of us, as believers, joins all of us together as one.  

“For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For in fact, the body is not one member but many.”
1 Corinthians 12:13-14
 
And it becomes the common denominator, the thread that binds us all together in God’s family. No matter how great the diversity among us, as God’s people, there should always be unity because of the Holy Spirit, who lives and dwells within each one of us.

It is in Jesus Christ that we have great incentive to be encouraged and to draw alongside one another. It was Christ who reached out to encourage us when we were needy.
If many of the churches and believers today, understood this nature of this principle of Christ’s body, we would all be more motivated toward unity with one another!

You Can't Quarantine The Word of God

" 35  Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there. 36  Simon and his companions went searching for Him. 37  They found Him and said, “Everyone’s looking for You!” 38  And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.” 39  So He went into all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. 40  Then a man with a serious skin disease came to Him and, on his knees, begged Him: “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41  Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him. “I am willing,” He told him. “Be made clean.” 42  Immediately the disease left him, and he was healed. 43  Then He sternly warned him and sent him away at once, 44  telling him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer what Moses prescribed for your cleansin

The Things Which Must Soon Take Place

    " The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2  who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3  Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near."
