1 John 4:8
8 “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.”
Today’s Inspiration: Love is the Word of God, for He is Love. 1 John 4:8. Evil prevails in this world is because of fear and satan works on fears he creates to eradicate love from our lives with lies. The gospel is the Good News of the Love of Christ. It’s the perfect love of God that is able to cast out all fears. 1 John 4:18.
Fear can be like a black dog trying to chase us and if we run, hide or avoid, we will never overcome. Faith arises when we know the love of God is greater in us than satan or even the black dog. 1 John 4:4 In Christ, we no longer run, hide or avoid but we face it, resist it, or even lay hold of it, and it shall flee. James 4:7.
Apostle Paul expounded Love in the ministry of Christ saying, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.” I Corinthians 13:1-3. A Pure Heart is the Father’s Heart of Love. It never fails.
Prayer: O Lord My God, I surrender my hardened heart to you and seek for a new heart to love and forgive again and with a new spirit which hears your Holy Spirit and do your will, overcoming all my fears in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
