17 “…that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love...”
Today’s Inspiration: As Christians we are rooted and grounded in love because God is love and as we are created in His image, we need to take on the Divine attribute of love. Ephesians 3:17. Once we understand the supreme attribute of love, which is immeasurable, and which surpasses all knowledge, we will be filled with the fullness of God. V18. This is the year where we can only win people to Christ with love. Apostle Paul stressed the importance of love in various parts of the scripture. Love is not a feeling. It is doing what is right from God’s perspective. One act of love is to share the love of God to the lost souls and turn them back to God, who is their creator and source of everything.
Love is being responsible, honest, loyal, trustworthy and faithful. Love is being zealous towards God and edifies others. 1 Corinthians 8:1. Love is a timeless truth and Apostle Paul states that love resides in a mature person who needs to put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11. What Apostle Paul is referring to is to leave our childish behavior and attitudes.
Now that we mature, we must speak and correct with love as the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Galatians 6:1, Romans 5;5.
Jesus’greatest commandment evolved around love in Matthew 22:37-39. Jesus’ major attribute is to listen to His Father and to listen to the Holy Spirit. John 5:30. Our attitude today must be one like the Father and Jesus Christ and everything should be done with love. Our brain is filled with a lot of information from the time we are in the mother’s womb till now. It is necessary now to discard all those words which are of carnal nature and take on the storehouse of the word of God so that whatever we do and act are pleasing to God.
As this is the year of speaking, let us watch our words. It should be one that edifies and one spoken in love. If we want victory this year, we must speak victory to ourselves from our own mouth. Let our mouth this year be one that generates power, miracles, love, abundance and excellence of our soul. This is the year of Dunamis power and we should see many Miracles but first we must bow our knees and consecrate our hearts as it is also a year of voice of God calling forth purity to be in the hearts of His people. May you receive outpouring of Dunamis power in whatever you do in 2020 and beyond! May God exalt you this season! God be praised!
