Walking in Love – forgiveness
If you will not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Heavenly Father forgive you your trespasses. Luke 6:37- forgive and you shall be forgiven. Love is the perfection of the law. The bible makes it clear that every law in the bible hangs on the law of love. When the law of love is broken then the law of victory is also extinguished.
When you are unforgiving, you bring yourself under the influence of the devil. You cannot exercise victory over the devil and his systems if you are not walking love. Unforgiveness robs you of your righteousness in Christ. Freely we have received forgiveness and freely we are meant to give. Walking in love is one of major decisions you will have make to retain and enforce your total victory. So how much freedom you will enjoy is determined by how much forgiveness you are willing to give-away.
For God is not the author of confusion. A house divided against itself would eventually fall. There are certain areas in our lives that unity is required for you to enforce total victory. They include oneness with yourself, unity with God and his word, unity with the Holy Spirit, unity with your spouse, unity of spirit with fellow partakers of the divine covenant.
If you cannot agree with yourself then you cannot come into agreement. Your thought, words and actions should be one. Your mouth should agree with your thoughts and your thoughts should agree with your actions.
Your life must line up with God’s purpose for your life. You have been bought with a price therefore glorify God in your body. We are meant to be the living word of God, we should live out the word through the help of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, my father is with me, he has not left me alone because I do always the things that please him. When you do things for same reason that God wants it to be done; then we become in-resistible. Develop the discipline of oneness with God and His word and you will never be defeated.
Some people say they work better alone. Some also say church will be a better place without people. The truth is the people make the church and without people, there would be no church. God loves people more than a vision or things. It is the plan of God that you work with people so you must develop discernment for the team of people you are to work with and decide to work in unity with them to achieve the assignment God has given you.
The first human being you should be and stay in unity with is your spouse. One will chase a thousand but two will chase ten thousand. You limit your productiveness by one tenth of your capacity when you live in disunity with your spouse. Charity begins at home. When you fail at the home front, you eventually fail on other fronts. I am consistently working in unity with my wife because I love her and because I know the power and value of unity.
