Back to the basics, Day 3-Love

Posted: August 26, 2015 in Thoughts on God

Have you ever noticed how many times you see the word love throughout the Bible? I honestly don’t think that we take it seriously enough. What does the Bible say about Love? My favorite verse on this subject is:

1 Corinthians 13:13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I see so many Christians these days trying their hardest to be pure and Christ-like in their daily walk, that they don’t realize the importance of love. Why is love so important in getting back to the basics of faith?

When you look at the verse above, you’ll notice that love even trumps faith in importance. The reason is this, without a loving heart, faith and hope can’t live. The basis of the Christian faith is the ability to turn a bitter heart into one filled with love. It’s like trying to grow a new lawn, if the ground is hard and dry (without love), then it’s not going to grow. If we water and fertilize the ground (like love), then the grass/faith, will grow abundantly.

If you want to restore your walk with Jesus, then learn to love again. A loving heart is the perfect foundation for the fruit of the Spirit to grow. It releases anger, envy, hate, jealousy, etc. The best thing about cultivating a loving heart is that it makes your walk with Christ a lot easier.

Today we should all pray for a more loving heart. Let us ask the Holy Spirit to fill our entire body with love for God, family, and friends. I assure you that when we become wrapped up in love, we will feel a lot better.
