When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, He placed His agape love (The God kind of love) inside of you.
Romans 5:5 NKJV
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
We are love children of a love God. We are born into a family of love. That means you and I have the ability to love like Jesus loves.
The more you meditate on the love of God, confess it and see yourself walking in it, the more it will be stirred up on the inside of you!
1 Corinthians 13:8 says, “Love never fails”. This love never fails. The way of love is a fail-proof way to live. God's love protects you from failing.
You and I don’t need to go from failure to failure, from one struggle to the next struggle. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says we should go from glory to glory, from success to more success, and its all possible when you and I choose to live our lives in this failure proof lifestyle – the life of Love.
Love is not a feeling, and a feeling is not the evidence of love. Love is a Person, Jesus, and action is the evidence of it. Love is a verb. It is a doing word.
When the Bible says that Jesus was moved with compassion, it could have said He was moved by God, not a feeling. Compassion—the Father—sent Him into the world, not to condemn it but to save it, praise God! Regardless of what people did to Him, Jesus was only moved with compassion for them.
Compassion doesn’t just strike at
the surface of things or relieve outward symptoms. Compassion goes to the root of the problem: the devil and his works. When you learn to be motivated by God’s compassion, you realize that people are not your enemy.
When people come against you with persecution, affliction and accusations to harass you and make your life miserable, launch your attack against satan because he is the real enemy.
Ephesians 6:12 NKJV
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
To walk in God’s agape love is to step aside and allow the power of God to come between you and the situation you are dealing with.
When Jesus said to turn the other cheek, He didn’t intend for you to get beaten up. He intended for you to be walking in the love of God so powerfully that when you do turn the other cheek, the enemy can’t hit you!!
When you and I release the love of God towards somebody, we are releasing God, because God is love. God then becomes responsible for it’s success.
So today, make a decision to love like God loves, to forgive like God forgives, and to forget like God forgets. Get back into this failure-proof lifestyle, the life of love, and all will be well.
