Topic: Love Supercedes All [26/12/2016]
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Galatians 5:6. Read: 1 Cor 13:1-13
In Hebrews 11:6, says, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him". The writer of Hebrews went further to list the fathers of faith. He enumerated their works of faith which made them to subdue kingdoms and quench fires. In fact, Heb 11 is the hallmark of faith! You can strengthen your faith and do exploit for God in that verse of the Bible.
But behind the scene of working faith is a secret and that secret is love. Faith cannot work alone. Faith only works through love which is God Almighty Himself. Whatsoever gift you possess in the body of Christ, love is the overall. Paul said, faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. It was this love that brought Him to this world and it was this same love for us that nailed Him to the Cross. Love forgives all in the midst of persecution. Jesus prayed for His persecutors and Stephen prayed God to forgive his executors. This kind of love is what our family need today to enjoy heaven on earth in their homes. This kind of love is what we need in our society today to live in harmony and bid insurgency and insecurity farewell. Jesus paid the price of love and expects us to continue in this good work particularly. Love all and hate no one
* Father, the grace to love more and hate none, release upon me in Jesus name
