Matthew 24:12 (KJV)
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Tade was cheated time and time again by fake believers who sought to take advantage of his brotherly love and devotion to the body. It got to the point he now found it hard to love people who claimed to be brethren. He didnâ€™t know that the enemyâ€™s game plan was to make his love wax cold and quench his faith.
You see, it is the same heart with which you love the Lord that you also love His brethren. If your heart has taken up the attribute of love for the Lord, it will be impossible for you not to love His brethren and even other people created in His image. Walking in this kind of love is a product of faith in your heart, for faith working through love is the fruit of the renewed heart. Waning love ultimately leads to an eroding away of the faith in your heart. The victory that overcomes the world comes because of your faith (1 John 5:4).
The prince of this world tries to steal your faith by proliferating iniquity in the world. He knows that if your love [for the brethren and for other people created in the image of God] waxes cold, your faith will also wax cold, and you will no more be able to be an overcomer.
The Lord has forewarned us that the love of many will wax cold because iniquity will abound. One reason He gives us this warning is because He does not want you to be among the â€˜manyâ€™ whose love waxes cold.
Go into today remembering that you have been given the grace to walk in the divine nature. This nature is one that loves unconditionally.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you love unconditionally.
-Pst. Abraham Damilola Arigi
