You’re Love In Motion - January 14th, 2023

(God’s Love DNA Flows Within You)

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


 

TO THE BIBLE: “Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out.”

(1 Corinthians 13:4-6 TLB)

 

LET’S TALK

The Bible tells us that God is love (1 John 4:8); love is His nature—who He is. When we talk about the attributes of love, therefore, we’re talking about the attributes of God. Apply

this to our theme verse, and it’ll read, “God is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. God does not demand His own way.” Hallelujah!


Recall how Jesus lived when He walked the earth; He was love manifested. His works were works of love. His words were words of love. He was love in motion. Jesus in Galilee was the intrusion of love in the streets of Galilee. Love invaded that atmosphere. Now, what about you? The Bible says you’re God’s offspring (1 Peter 1:23), meaning that you’re the reproduction of love.


The offspring of an eagle would be an eagle. The offspring of a human would be a human. The offspring of Love (God), therefore, is love! So, if your name is Tom, for example, you should say, “Tom is very patient and kind. Tom is never envious nor boils over with jealousy. Tom is not boastful or vainglorious. Tom does not display himself haughtily.” Praise God! God’s Word shows us who we are; it’s a mirror. When you look at that mirror, don’t forget what you look like: patient, kind, tolerant, loving and humble. If arrogance or hatred tries to gain vent through you, refuse and declare, “I’m not arrogant; I’m humble. I’m full of love as Jesus is; I live in His Name; therefore, I walk and act like Him.” Let the love of Christ, which is the bond of perfection, rule your heart always. Lavishly express the love-nature of God in your spirit and radiate the beauty and glories of heaven to your world.


Go Deeper: Ephesians 4:2; 1 Peter 4:8 NIV; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV


Speak: I radiate and express God’s love with all humility, gentleness and patience. I relate with others graciously, lavishly expressing the beauty and glories of heaven to my world because the love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
