DAY 5 of WILL YOU TAKE A LOVE WALK WITH ME FOR 10 DAYS? YAY! WE HAVE MADE IT!! THE HALFWAY MARK!!!
HOW IS YOUR LOVE WALK? PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE ANY STORIES AND TESTIMONIES FROM THE PAST 4 DAYS!! In case you are just chiming in, GOD placed it in my spirit and on my heart, that we often preach repentance of SIN, we bombard fornication, adultery, homosexuality, lying, stealing, etc. but fail to constantly teach repentance for a LACK OF LOVE.
WE ARE COMMANDED TO LOVE, IN DEEDS AND NOT JUST WORDS. TO NOT DO SO IS SIN!!! IT IS DISOBEDIENCE, IN FACT, GOD SAYS, “Of ALL that you do, if you fail to LOVE, HE will hold it against you” Revelation 2:4 But all too often we fail repeatedly at genuine love. It takes deliberate effort to love people who behave un-lovable. It takes deliberate effort to give of you DAILY, especially to those who will not, and cannot give back!
The Word tells us…”If you love only those who love you, what profit is it, if you give only to those who can give you in return, what profit is it? If you do good only to those who do good to you, what profit is it? Sinners do the same thing.” Luke 6:32-34 DAY 5 IT IS ONLY FITTING AS 5 IS THE BIBLICAL NUMBER OF GRACE THAT THIS BE THE DAY TO GIVE GRACE TO THOSE WHO HAVE OFFENDED US. (I love to share stories…. ok driving down the street apparently a bit too slow for the driver behind me, he angrily pulls from behind me and not only speeds by me, but drives so close to me, that he is inches away from side swiping or hitting my car, I GUESS THIS WAS SUPPOSE TO INTIMIDATE ME!! I CAN’T LIE, I WAS HOT!! MEEK, BUT MOST CERTAINLY NOT WEAK!!! My thought, “THIS IDOIT!!!) He could have caused me to panic and swerve into the other lane, causing an accident, or to merely run off the road and hit a pole or anything, just that one act of rudeness, could have went horribly wrong, THANK GOD!!! Yet still I went from 0 to 100!!!
I wanted to do exactly what he had done, to let him know, YOU GOT THE WRONG ONE!!!! But I always TRY, notice I said TRY to remember my character. But is it worth it to avenge ourselves? GOD SAYS, TO LEAVE ROOM FOR HIM! JUST AS HE HAS GIVEN US GRACE, AS WE SO OFTEN OFFEND HIM, BY OUR ACTIONS, WORDS, AND THOUGHTS, WE SHOULD GIVE ONE ANOTHER GRACE, TODAY’S ACT OF LOVE, IS TO SHOW GRACE! Maybe it is not a recent offense, maybe it was yesterday, or perhaps years ago, whatever the offense, SHOW GRACE! LET IT GO! And, I just gave this example; I could go on, because no one can wound you, like someone close or perceivably close, the spirit of betrayal among so called friends can be very difficult.
SHOW GRACE, AND LET IT GO, THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND THE POWER OF THE CROSS. BE THE BIGGER PERSON, GOD WILL BLESS YOU FOR IT!
