Love Shines, 28AUG – #920

Standard

It’s Truth, that our love for Jesus comes from knowing Him as Truth, comes from one mind within the Spirit.

If only we did not bicker about everything else. It’s so painful to watch derision. Bickering from our mouths prevents praises which should be coming out instead. Complaining prevents compliments. Curses prevent blessings. Worldly opinions prevent Heavenly truths from being shared. We are to teach and reach. Tell all that even if we live so humanly in the world, we are to look for LOVE and be a part of the LOVE to share. Life tarnishes but Love shines. No wonder the Lord keeps wanting us to look for Him, then we would be focused, glow love, and just imagine what would fade away. 

We believe in Jesus because that is Spiritual Truth, not because that is an opinion. We don’t have to crack knees to teach that, every knee will bow to Jesus as Lord because God Himself has raised Jesus to be praised. We do need to share and shine the same LOVE regardless of our affiliation with anything earthly. We must keep spreading the Good News of Jesus, because LOVE comes from God.

Love is the Way, because Jesus is the Way. Love is our rainbow in the storm when we look to the Light, Love is our rainbow to shine from within. 

There’s something about seeing a rainbow when there is no rain. When I looked, only enough rain from one cloud was present to make one intense rainbow in the distance, while I drove through sunshine yesterday. Remember that dark days are always followed by light. I think that rainbow must have been placed by angels for someone who just came out of a storm. I pray all will see the glory of the Lord. I pray that those recipients of the storms also stayed faithful enough during it to keep looking towards the Light, the Lord, the Future.  To see any rainbow, you still need to choose to look outside, look forward with the sun to your back, and look with forgiveness to the past, yours and others… 

Love is our rainbow in the storm when we look to the Light, Love is our rainbow to shine from within. 

In life, Jesus became like us to become a servant. If we are to be Jesus like, we are to serve one another, not some, not ourselves, but all. We are to have and share the same love. If we are to LIVE life, and LOVE in Spirit and in Truth, then we must become servant-minded. If we are to share Jesus and be Jesus-like, acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord, then our service will be to the glory of God the Father. Servants shine because Love shines.

Love Shines. 

Share Love. 

Amen


Paul to the Phillipians 2

Imitating Christ’s Humility

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man,  he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Do Everything Without Grumbling

Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
