My Brethren have you consider asking yourself whether you really love God or Not? Paul has offered us his prayer what he desires not only for the Corinthians Church but is very relevant to us as well.
Phil 1: 9-11 “And this is my prayer: that your LOVE may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, “so that” you may “be able” to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.”
Peter said that when we love God and we love others, that can keep us from sinning
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1Peter 4:8)
John’s added “Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.(1John 2:10)
Why do we really need to love deeply from our heart?
BECAUSE OUR RELATIONSHIP IS AN IMPORTANT SHOW or MANIFESTATION of our LOVE TO GOD!
4 THINGs HAPPEN WHEN WE FULLY DEEPLY LOVE FROM THE HEART :
1. WE will be able to DISCERN WHAT IS BEST – Phil 1:10a
a. God will give us discerning heart to distinguish between right and wrong. 1KING 3:9 “So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?"
b. You will not judge by what you see with your eyes or heard with your ears. ISAIAH11:3 “and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears”
2. Real LOVE make us PURE and BLAMELESS Phil 1:10 b
a. Help us to be sincere 1 john 3:18 “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
b. Without fault Phil 2:15” so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe”
c. Free from accusation Col 1:22 “But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation”
d. Spotless 2 Peter 3:14 “So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.”
e. You can do everything without complaining Phil 2:14
3. FILLED with the FRUIT OF Righteousness. Phil 1:11a
The fruit of the Holy Spirit “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Gal 5:22-23) Is the evidence of your love to God and other.
4. GIVE GLORY To GOD Phil 1:11b. Real love always leads you to praise God in your life. God bless you all.
