Love


November 29, 2011

Read 1 Corinthians 13:1-7

We may have given up on love. Perhaps we have waited for love to find us only to be disappointed. Maybe our loved ones have hurt us so badly that we needed to numb ourself from the pain. In the past our addiction helped to keep us numb, but now that we are in recovery, we have to find ways to deal with the issue of love once again.

It is God’s will that we love others; without love nothing else matters (see 1 Corinthians 13:1-3). Love is more than a feeling; it is choosing to behave in loving ways. It is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, produced in our life as we yield to God. The Bible defines it this way: “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude….Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

This passage is a description of how God loves us. As we begin to absorb his love, we will find ourself reaching out to love again. No one loves perfectly, but we must learn how to love. We can ask God to help us love others, and stop waiting for them to love us. We cannot expect to be good at loving right away; we should be patient as God’s love grows within us and he teaches us how to love. When we choose to act in loving ways, the emotions will follow, and we will find that our love will be returned.

God bless you all!

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.
