God’s love is the greatest gift bestowed upon us. Love has the power to heal, to end wars, to mend broken hearts, to comfort us, to help others, and to give us eternal salvation, etc. It is such a beautiful gift, and yet we don’t use it as we should.
1 Corinthians 13:2-7 (KJV)
2 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, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity is the love of God. We need to allow God’s love to lead us and to guide us. What if we allowed this great love to inspire our lives. Can you imagine how great our lives could be?
I desire for God’s love to consume my life. I want this charity to be in the center of everything that I do. Every day I want to walk in God’s great love and to share it with everyone. The same love that held Jesus on the cross is in my heart. I want to learn to use it as Jesus did.
I want God’s love to help me to bear all things, believe all things, hope in all things, and endure all things. Then, I will know the true power of God’s love. I know that regardless of my problem love is the answer.
