MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: The love of God is the foundation of life.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: Receive the grace to be rooted and grounded in the love of God, in the name of Jesus.
The greatest commandment of all is love. Love is the greatest identity of a believer (John 13:35).There are three kinds of love, the God kind of love (Agape),love between husband and wife(Eros) and Love between friend and acquaintances (Phileos).
The kind of love being referred to here is Agape, which means putting others first. This kind of love emanates from a life of the Spirit (Galatian 5:22). One of the scribes asked Jesus in Mark 12:28 a question. He said, “Master, which is the greatest commandment?”
The Lord replied with two answers: “And thou shall love the Lord…, this is the first commandment and the secondthou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.” There is none other commandment greater than these. Love is the greatest commandment upon which other commandments stand.
What does it means to love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength? It means loving God with all that you have. This kind of love is more of doing than feeling. It requires that you demonstrate your love in some practical way. How do you demonstrate and manifest this kind of love?
Exodus 20:1-7 gives practical examples that were also corroborated in the New Testament. Your love for God will manifest in your loyalty or allegiance to God and your separation or dedication unto him (Roman 12:1) Beloved, God first loved you and me. He demonstrated His love to us while we are yet a sinner. God is love.
Do you really love God? Where resides your loyalty? Are you fully committed to Him? Are you part of people that bring disrepute to His name? Repent today and embrace His love. Repent and rededicate your life if you’re his son or daughter. If you are not, surrender your life to Him and reciprocate your love to God.
1. Father, give me strength to live by Your commandment of love, in the name of Jesus.
2. Teach me, Lord to love You above all else, in the name of Jesus.
3. Let love be the driving force for my obedience to Your commands, in the name of Jesus.
4. Father, teach me to love You with all that I have, in the name of Jesus.
5. Father, let my loyalty be to You only, in the name of Jesus.
6. Father, let nothing come between You and me, Lord, in the name of Jesus.
7. My life will not bring disrespect to the name of God, in the name of Jesus.
