WHEN LOVE IS BLIND(3)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WHEN LOVE IS BLIND (3)*
Acts 17:30 *And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:*
*Insight and Highlight.*
God's love is love that sees more but is willing to see less.
Love is a mystery, as God is and His ways, Prov 25:2, Eph 5:32, Rom 11:33, 1 Tim 3:16. However, God does reveal mysteries to us, Matt 13:11.
There is mystery about God's love.
His love is for all His creation, John 3:16, yet limited to those who love Him Prov 8:17, John 14:21.
This love sees more, to save, care, to provide, to protect, preserve His creation and because this love sees more of these, it is willing to see less.
Acts 17:30 records that at the times of our ignorance God winked at our sins.
It is love that sees more but is willing to see less.
His love sees more of mercy, willing to see less and none of our sins.
While we were in our sins, He died on the cross, Rom 5:8.
Love sees as if she has not seen, hears as if she has not heard.
Will you do this today?
There is no law against love as a fruit of the Spirit. So also other fruit of the Spirit.
You can never justify why you refused to love.
*Call to Word action.*
There is greatness in a gentle attitude. You are not weak, but strong.
Ps 18:35 *Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
If we estranged ourselves from God's love, we will be "united" by satan.
All gifts of the Spirit are of no value without love, 1 Cor 13:1-3
The pre-eminent characteristics of any follower of Christ is love, 1 Cor 13:4-7.
We are nothing without love but all things and complete in Christ, with love.
Lord, let me be complete in You, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and be blessed as you go today.
God bless you.
