DAY 10 !!! OF: WILL YOU TAKE A LOVE WALK WITH ME FOR 10 DAYS? DAY 10! YAY!! WE MADE IT!!! HAS YOUR LOVE WALK BEEN TESTED AS MUCH AS MINE? I CAN PROUDLY PROCLAIM:” YES JESUS, I PASSED THE TEST!!! WITH YOU ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! I cannot and do not want to re-count all that has happened, but because of this study and commitment, the deliberate effort to LOVE unconditionally has been a success. It is my prayer that you and I both consistently apply these principles to our lives.
“Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and [a]disregards the offenses of others]. Practice hospitality to one another (those of the household of faith). [Be hospitable, be a lover of strangers, with brotherly affection for the unknown guests, the foreigners, the poor, and all others who come your way who are of Christ’s body.] And [in each instance] do it ungrudgingly (cordially and graciously, without complaining but as representing Him).” 1 Peter 4:8-9 AMP
Concerning the number 10 I found this interesting: There are four biblical numbers in the Bible that denote completion or perfection. Three, seven, ten, and twelve all mean completion and perfection.
While each number represents completion or perfection, it is a different type of completion or perfection. Three means “divine perfection.” Seven means “spiritual perfection.” Twelve means “governmental perfection.” That’s why there are twelve people on a jury. Ten is the number of perfection or completion of God’s “divine order.” It is the only one of the perfect biblical numbers in which humans have a part.
We cannot be part of the three, seven, or twelve. We are definitely part of the ten since it is the number of completion based on God’s order AND human responsibility. The number ten is built into our very anatomy. DAY 10 COMPLETION based on God’s order and human responsibility, it is GOD’s order that we LOVE one another; it is our responsibility to live in order with God’s Word.
1 Corinthians 13:2 tells us, “If I had the gift of prophecy and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.”
WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE AGAIN? IS IT MERELY IN WORD? NO IT IS ALSO IN DEED. LET’S RECAP:
DAY 1-LOVE INVOLVES SACRIFICE- (THINKING LESS OF SELF & MORE OF OTHERS)
DAY 2- LOVE MUST BE DEMONSTRATED (SHOW PEOPLE THAT YOU LOVE THEM, ACTUALLY REACH BEYOND YOUR NORMAL CIRCLE)
DAY 3-BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU, AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE YOU. (THIS INVOLVES MORE THAN SAYING I BLESS YOU! IT INVOLVES GIVING OF SELF)
DAY 4- REACH OUT TO THOSE YOU HAVENT TOUCHED IN A WHILE- FOLLOWING JESUS INTO SAMERIA ( REACH OUT TO THOSE LESS LIKELY TO BE REACHED ie; a distant relative, old friend, someone on the street- changing lives through 1 person)
DAY 5- SHOWING LOVE THROUGH GRACE (When you want to avenge yourself leave room for GOD)
DAY 6 THE NUMBER OF MAN (Embrace that Gods love for you flows from an inexhaustible source; LOVE yourself enough to rid your life of contamination by negative people, abusive people, debilitating thoughts, etc.
DAY 7 LOVE PEOPLE ENOUGH TO RELEASE THEM FROM THE PAST (LET IT GO!)
DAY 8-BEGIN WITH HUMILITY (Esteem one another as better than yourself) Celebrate the GIFTs in each other.
DAY 9-BIRTHING DAY (Be a purpose driven mid-wife and help someone else birth their dream)
