There was once a disciple called John who understood perfectly the meaning of “Agape” – the God Love. When this revelation of “agape” dawned on him, he wrote in 1 John 3:1
“Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us that we might be called the sons of God…”
These are some of the words that make me run around when I study my Bible. The word “bestow” in this passage means to lavishly supply, it means to pour, it also means to water. What Paul meant here was that God has lavishly supplied His love unto us and this “agape” has translated us to become sons of God.
This is so powerful because love is more than caring for one another; love is a force, it causes God to move and makes God who He is. God never said at any time He is faith, He never said He is peace; He never said He is prayer but God said He is love (1 John 4:8).
1 John 4:8 – “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
Hallelujah! Love is the nature of God and if you are born again, love has become your nature. Do not struggle to love, don’t try to figure it out, just walk in the light of God and love will flow from you and inundate the entire world. Since God is love, and you are born of Him, it implies that you are love and you are the fulfilment of the law (Romans 13:10).
Romans 13:10 – Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
Jesus came to this earth because He was the transporter of love (John 3:16). He could heal all that were sick because He loved them and had compassion for them (Matthew 9:36). In the mind of God, you are the perfection of love. God sees you and says “you are kind, you are not proud, you are well behaved, you think good things, you believe all God says and you never disappoint Him” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). If God could say such thing about you then it must be the truth because God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). You are a bundle of love to this world; go and explode!
Pray this aloud:
I am born of a love God. I am a love child. Love flows from the crown of my head to the soul of my feet. Because I function in love, the world favors me. Wherever I go doors are opened for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
