He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
If you must continue to grow and not get stagnated or even fall backward, you must abide in the love of Christ. Someone may ask, â€˜yes, I want to keep growing, how do I abide in His love?â€™
To answer this, Jesus in John 14:15
(KJV) says â€™If ye love me, keep my commandments’.
Jesus says: â€˜ This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you’.
How has Christ loved you? That is how you must love also if you must abide in his love.
Christ gave himself for you when you were by nature a child of wrath (Ephesians 2:3
). You will have to give up something too because you want to love properly.
According to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NLT),
Love is patient and kind, it is not jealous, boastful, proud, or rude.
Love does not demands its own way and is not irritable.
Love does not keep a record of being wronged, it does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins.
Love never gives up or lose faith, it is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.
Love lasts forever.
This is how Christ has loved you and you must also love others, in the same manner, to keep abiding in His love.
Go into today asking God to shed His love abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit whom he has given you.
Prayer: Lord, help me to walk always in your love. Amen.
