TEACH ME TO LOVE
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.
Colossians 3:14 NLT
We hear all these wonderful teachings concerning different topics in the Bible. We have been taught about faith, obedience to God, blessings of God, healing, deliverance, the hope we have in Christ and many wonderful things.
Jesus taught about love, He loved us Himself and commanded us to love one another. He said the only way the world will know and understand that we are His; if we love one another. This means that we should be patience to one another and praying for each other weakness.
Paul the Apostle wrote to Colossians that above all, they should clothe themselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. We will overcome fights, competitions, arguments and cruelty through love. When we share the Good News of Jesus with unbelievers that are in a circle of our influence; our love should be the first testimony to them that Jesus lives in us.
This morning, I want to encourage you to love. Love will teach you to forgive, let go and move on with life. Love will teach you to pray for the unbelievers instead of condemning them. Love will teach you to stay calm, and control your anger when things seem to be out of control. Love will help you understand people, and treat them in a godly way no matter how they have treated you.
Ask the Lord to help to love someone today. Ask the Lord to give you strength to love your enemies and those people who seem to be unlovable. Ask the Lord to help you be patient with people who don't appreciate you and your contribution to them. Ask the Lord to teach you to love.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I'm asking that You may help me to love. Teach me to love like Jesus, help me to love in deed and truth according to your Gospel I. Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
