The Blessings of Love- Part 1
Today we will explore some of the blessings of having the love of God operating in our lives. Everything has consequence. So also walking in love has outcomes. These outcomes are blessings and they include:-
God’s presence – 1 John 4:7,16 – Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God……. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
God is love and when you walk in love you are actually walking in the very presence of God and God is working His will through you. And where you have the presence of God, you have the best of Heaven on earth and there is no limit to what you can achieve.
Success and provision – 1 Corinthians 13:8 – Love never fails.
When you consistently walk in the love of God, you eventually banish failure out of your life. The bible recorded in Acts 3:32-36 and Luke 22:35, that the disciples of Christ lacked nothing. They were strangers to failure. Where love reigns, defeat has no place. As we develop and grow in the love of God, we will experience ascendency in our success rate.
Greatness – 1 Corinthians 13:13 – And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
When we walk in love, we are living the highest life because love is the greatest. With walking in love comes greatness. No one is greater than the greatest. God is love and He is the greatest. So by walking in love, you exit smallness and step into the realm of greatness. Jesus received the greatest name because of his love for humanity. We also step into greatness by walking in love like Christ. Potentially we are all great in Christ but to manifest our greatness, we must love like Christ.
