Undying Love

His favor is with everyone who has an undying love for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 6:24 GW

God is faithful and reliable. If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.

1 John 1:9 GW

Who can notice every mistake? Forgive my hidden faults.

Keep me from sinning. Do not let anyone gain control over me. Then I will be blameless, and I will be free from any great offense.

May the words from my mouth and the thoughts from my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my defender.

Psalms 19:12‭-‬14 GW

What happens when your head gets chopped off?

Your body dies.

It can no longer receive instructions and all your life supporting functions cease.

Hence, the head is essential to life.

Christ is the head of the Church.

We are supposed to grow up in our relationship with Christ until He is the head of all of us.

There is only one Leader.

There is only one Teacher.

There is only one Father.

The Spirit of God.

The Church will hit her stride when we are all submitted to the headship of Christ.

How does that happen?

When we get out of our own way.

We need to be seeking the Lord for direction and instruction.

He is the way.

Human nature is not the way.

Being completely submitted and obedient to the Father is the way Jesus lived.

Those who love Him must live the same way He did.

Then His favor will rest upon us.

What’s the most important thing that we should be doing in this brief lifetime we live?

I believe God already provided the answer.

It’s in the Bible.

We need to love God more than anything else.

I believe that’s the first commandment.

Thou shall have no other gods before Me.

Need to refresh your memory? Read Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5.

Then, decide for yourself.

What’s more important than loving God?

Only you can answer that for yourself.

How do you identify it?

It’s whatever temptation that causes you to sin.

If you love God, you will obey His commandments.

And it won’t be difficult.

His yoke is easy.

His burden is light.

Just walk with God.

He will lead you.

Ask God what He wants you to do.

Then, do it.

That’s God’s will for your life.

That you would be obedient.

Disobedience is sin.

I pray that the Spirit of the Living God would transform your mind to come into agreement with His divine will.

I pray that the thoughts you think would please the Lord.

I pray that He would give you a humble heart that is quick to confess when you are wrong and that you wouldn’t get trapped in your own unconfessed sin.

I pray that you would seek the Lord first in all things.

May He make you more than a conqueror.

May you become a friend of God.

And may your love for Him never die.

In Jesus’ Name I pray.

Amen.
