A friend of mine told me about how God had recently impressed upon her heart lately the words, “JUST LOVE!” I think that’s God’s word to me, too.
What is the power that conquered death in all its forms and made the fear of death something that the believer no longer has over him or her? Just love.
What is the force that will still be around when all the dictators and kings and presidents have gone to their graves and kingdoms and empires have fallen? Just love.
What will be the power that outlasts hate, overcomes fear, overwhelms ignorance, and will be the last one standing? Just love.
What can’t be stopped by any army or weapon or group that has ever been and ever will be? What has survived centuries of attempts to snuff it out only to grow stronger with time? Just love.
What is God’s ultimate force He has used to end the dominion of sin and overthrow darkness and usher in a new Kingdom with new values where anyone is welcome, nobody is perfect and nothing is impossible? Just love.
What are we as believers called to do to see this Kingdom of God come and see multitudes coming to faith in the Messiah and King, Jesus? Just love.
What will overcome every obstacle and barrier and what will draw people to the God we serve and make them want to know Him? Just love.
What can mend your broken heart, refresh your weary spirit, renew your mind, and heal your sin-scarred body? Just love.
Just love and only love is what will win. God is love and His love for us is so powerful that nothing, not death or the grave or anything else, can keep Him from getting to us and taking us back. Nothing can separate us from Him. Nothing will cause His love for us to stop. Nothing will diminish His love for us in the slightest.
God’s love in us and through us WILL change the world. That one thing I believe with all that is in me!
Amen and amen!
