Today’s Inspiration: Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:7-9. The greatest lesson in our life is to learn how to love like Christ did. How do we know a person has been born again in the Spirit? It's not speaking in tongues nor becoming more religious, or attending more conferences or meetings. A regeneration of our spirit comes from the Holy Spirit workings in our attitude, behaviour and character daily, bearing the fruit of the Spirit, the image of Christ. Galatians 5:22-23.
Without the shedding of the blood of Jesus, the crucifixion at the Cross and the resurrection of Christ, we will not understand the agape love of God. Our carnal nature is self-centred and self-righteous but Godly nature is selfless and sacrificial. John 3:16. A born again soul is one who felt the love, grace and forgiveness of God daily. One who is willing to surrender his hardened heart of pain, hurts and wounds of the past to God, and receives a new heart and spirit of Christ, who gave himself for us. Ezekiel 36:26. We all came from love, and we are here to love, so that one day we will return back to our first love, our loving Abba Father God. Love brings forth the power, presence and providence of God, for His love endures forever and ever. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, guide me and teach me how to love like you on earth as it is in heaven. For I am born again in your Spirit, and it’s no longer I who lives but Christ lives inside of me, healing me and changing me daily that I may learn how love one another more, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
