1 John 4:17 (KJV)

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Previously, we have looked at the manifestation of the qualities of love in God and how it affects us. But, we know that 1 Corinthians 13, from which we discussed the love qualities of God, is actually talking about us. If God is love, then we are to love also, for as He is so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).

And because God is exhibiting these love qualities to the full, we can also exhibit them.

Don’t forget, He has come to give us life and that we should have this life to the full (John 10:10). This life is a love-filled life, and we have this life to the full. We love and we are kind, patient, not jealous, not proud or boastful, not selfish, not easily provoked, we don’t keep any record of wrong, we rejoice in justice and truth, never give up, and we love for eternity. Yes, that’s who we are.

We love because we have the Spirit of love and the very love of God shed abroad and intently in our hearts (Romans 5:5). You might not be exhibiting these love qualities to the fullest, you might not even be exhibiting one, but that does not remove the fact that you are God’s child who should love as He does. It simply means there is a need for intentional growth. You just need to believe it and start living the love-life that you have. God is love, so are you. Be love to all. Show them the expression of love and what love truly is. By so doing, you are doing what God would have done if He was present in your stead. Be love.

Go into today remembering that the hallmark of spiritual maturity is walking in our divine nature of love. All the other benefits of maturity which include spiritual might/power, authority, etc,  will eventually find expression in the life of the believer who walks in love.

Keep winning daily!

Prayer:
Thank you Lord for the Your love-life which You have given me. By the working of the Spirit of love in me, I exhibit who I am – Love – to the fullest, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
