Surrendering To Be Empowered
Surrendering to the Lord Jesus, and His God originated transformational love, provides you and me with the potent supply of the grace filled stuff to be enough. This stuff we call Agape. When we intentionally surrender to God through Jesus, we have grace happen, and then God shows up to demonstrate the ability to fully love God, love ourselves in a healthy/holy way, and love our neighbor as ourselves.
You May Have Heard About Loves Traits
You may have heard how this love God gives us is patient, kind, non envious, not arrogant, not proud, not rude, not selfish and not easily angered. It may have come to your attention that this God love keeps no records of wrongs, doesn’t delight in evil, but it gets fired up and rejoices when truth comes out. Additionally, it is no secret that this God love always protects, trusts hopes, perseveres and never fails. Wow! I don’t know about you, but all by myself, I cannot “always” anything! Something like this can come from only ONE source. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8a)
So, by God’s grace, let us determine to daily — starting today — let us yield ourselves to our loving Creator and die to ourselves by armoring up (Ephesians 6:10-20.) Let’s make our priority each day “put on the whole armor of God.” Let us do so in order that we have the ability to love HIM and also first love ourselves in a healthy way. (Deuteronomy 30:6 and Colossians 2:10-11.) If we don’t “get dressed” to be empowered to truly live and love, spiritually speaking, the question needs to be asked: If we don’t have the stuff to love our God, and we don’t know how to love ourselves, how would we have any godly wisdom guidance to actually love, not only God, but love our neighbors as ourselves?
LISTEN UP Y’ALL!
It is vitally important to never forget that genuine love comes from one source, and that source is Almighty God. Remember? God IS LOVE! God transforms us to love Deuteronomy 30:6. We get power filled love from God, and we give it powerfully away to others from God as well. we receive the capability to do all of this through Jesus God’s Son and the Holy Spirit; so, consequently, why not give it up daily to Jesus? Why not let the Lover of our souls create God love in us FOR the Almighty Himself, for ourselves, and by extension, love for all others. Yup! we need to get real! We absolutely need to just give it up for the ONE who gave it all up for us. After all, He is the one who was lifted up for us on THE Cross, and who will lift us up and change our lives eternally.
God Bless You.
