Love Required Here

Posted on March 1, 2017 at 6:35 AM

Holy Spirit. You love us, and we are called to love You and our sisters and brothers too. Jesus, please teach us how to do that well.

Matthew 32:27-29

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Jesus, You even went so far as to say "love your enemies".


My God, You are love. Teach us about love. Yes You have been teaching me about love as I work in the hospital. There are rooms where the people do not look very inviting, or the room smells bad, the injury is bad; no matter, You say “Go in that room” and I go. Just taking a smile and Your love in with me brings a responsive smile in them. Sometimes it’s a conversation that leads to talking about You. Sometimes just listening unburdens their heart. And I leave feeling a love connection with that person. It is such a blessing to me. Thank You for the privilege of working there.


You have taught me that no matter my first impression of people, they are all Your kids and You love them. We are called to love them too. Father, help us to see the good in people we encounter, and to know how to connect with them. In Your Word, the Bible, I watched Jesus heal the lepers even though their disease causes disfigurations. You healed the poor and the wealthy alike. Nothing stood in the way of Your love. You answered the “good thief” on the cross with a promise of heaven that day, because he recognized who You are and asked forgiveness. No matter what kind of life people have lived, be it crime filled or love filled, if they come to You accepting Your sacrifice for them, You forgive them and grant them an eternity in heaven.


You are not looking to punish the bad deeds that sinners do, but to call them to accept the gift You planned for their salvation. Our job is to help them see that You love them so much, Your great desire is to bring them home for eternity with You! Your heart weeps for those who refuse to accept Your Son’s sacrifice.

Lord I ask for the ability to love people as You love them. Holy Spirit, You are our indwelling mentor; teach us. Bring us courage to do whatever You ask.


My friends, all of us are called to love God and our brothers and sisters as ourselves. True love of self is recognizing who we are~ we are children of God, our Creator Father and He considers us His beloved. We are the treasure of His heart. That’s why He sent Jesus to suffer and die for us to pay our sin debt. It was a legal requirement if we were to be able to spend eternity with our God of perfect goodness.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
