It’s time!  I declare it is time we unite in a spirit of love.  Let us put the past behind us, chose to let love cover past sins, and forgive.  Oh, I see this happening in our community, and I am filled with joy and excitement for the possibilities.  You see, when a people are united in Christ, they are a powerful force. 

 

Do you see walls of division crumbling?  Do you see hearts open for restoration and reconciliation?  Do you see people having a greater desire to understand each other?  I have heard many spiritual leaders speak about their desire for oneness in the Body of Christ.  Yes, it is time.

 “And they sang a new song, saying,

‘Worthy are you to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
    from every tribe and language and people and nation,
 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
    and they shall reign on the earth.’ ”
~ Revelations 5:9-10

Sure, we might look different and worship in different ways, but we have the one who truly unifies us as central – Christ.  Let us take opportunities to grow in relationship with those who are different.  Let us seek to understand.  Let us worship together and exult our King.

 

We are one!  We are the Body of Christ and He is the head.  Let us unify, and get in our positions to show the world His victorious love.  There is something mysteriously amazing about the power that is released when those on Earth are in agreement with each other and with Heaven. 

 “Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.” ~ Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 6:10

 

Celebrate Love

Celebrating love on Valentine’s Day should include the love of your amazing heavenly Father who made a way you to have a personal and intimate relationship with Him through His Son. After all, He is the founder of this thing called love.

Reading this popular passage of scripture, 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, I began to break it down in my own way and would like to share it with you. Sometimes doing this helps me put a fresh perspective on deep and profound words from the Bible that can become, dare I say, “common”.

If you are eloquent and speak powerful words in heaven and on earth, but do not have love, you are a clattering mess of noise. If you operate in the prophetic and understand all mysteries and have knowledge and faith to do incredible things, but do not posses love, you are nothing. If you are generous and kind and give all you have to others and even offer up your body, but do not have love, you profit nothing. The motivation behind all things must be love.

Love is a friend who will wait on you; love does not get jealous and is not proud or snotty. Love does not manipulate or control to get its own way; it is not crabby or bitter. Love does not celebrate injustice, but rewards truth. Love is strong and can suffer all things, trust all things, has vision for all things, and can persevere through trials. Love is everlasting. As for some of the gifts, they will not even be necessary when the King returns, our perfect love. When we were young, we were immature and did childish things. As we grew up, we threw out our immature ways. When our Savior returns for us, we will see ourselves clearly, as He sees us. For He will reveal all things and loves us completely and intimately.

Let me close with this, let trust, vision, and love remain in your heart, mind, and spirit. Remember, love is most supreme.
