THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…
DATE: Friday, August 25th, 2017.
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 13:1-7
THEME: WALK IN LOVE
MEMORIZE: “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but indeed and in truth. “(1 John 3:18)
The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. God is love and if you say, ‘I love God,’ then you must obey His commandments. To walk in love is to follow after His statues and keep them. Are you claiming to love God, and yet you do not serve Him in spirit and truth? Joshua said, “For me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Do you contribute to the work of God in this church? We must obey the totality of the truth, only then can we see God. When love abides in you, God takes delight in you. We can demonstrate our love to God by abstaining from all appearance of evil, showing concern for the work of God and the brethren around us. Love entails seeking to please the Lord at all times. If we don’t love our fellow that men will see, how can we love God whom we haven’t seen? We can show our love for God by loving our fellow men and keeping His words.
Our text shows us clearly what love is all about. It is a mirror to us to examine ourselves. Do you possess the characteristics of love? If not, something has to be done. Do you preach the word of God? Are you seeking to walk in the vineyard of the Lord? The life you are living, is it glorifying God? Are you ensuring to keep to holiness, which without no man can see God? Do you respond cheerfully to sow into the work of God? Do you attend the services regularly and on time? Do you pray for the church, brethren and pastor? Do you have the burden for sinners and backsliders to recover them back to the Lord in your heart? Let us begin to manifest love in our life and God will bless us.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Father, rekindle the fire of your love in my spirit; fill me with the grace to love others, in Jesus’ name.
2. I pray for spiritual overhauling that will reignite the power to forgive those that have offended me, in Jesus’ name.
3. O Lord, increase your grace, presence, power, anointing, unction, righteousness upon the life of our G. O and Mummy in the Lord, in Jesus’ name.
