Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 14 February 2020

The Power of Love
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (1 John 4:7-8)

Today’s Morsel:  There is a lot to be said about love. When we truly love, there is no bitterness or animosity in our hearts.  To love one another is the command of God.  It is His revealed will and is well-pleasing in His sight.  It comes from Him, it is a gift of His grace and a fruit of His Spirit.  When we love as Jesus did, we won’t harbor prejudice and bias in our heart.  As Paul says, “Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth...” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) Jesus gave us the power to do things.  Shouldn’t the love of the brethren be one of them?  The proof of our regeneration as a true born-again believer is seen in our love toward ourselves and others.  “Let brotherly love continue.” (Hebrews 13:1)  

Sing: I want to live the way that He wants me to live.  I want to give until there’s just no more to give.  I want to love, love till there’s just no more love. I could never, never out love the Lord.

Thought For Today: Don't forget the flowers and chocolate.
