POWER POST FOR THE WEEK
I know you’re busy but here’s your SPIRIT inspired POWER POST guaranteed to help you through the week:
1 JOHN 4:7 “DEAR FRIENDS, LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER, FOR LOVE COMES FROM GOD. EVERYONE WHO LOVES HAS BEEN BORN OF GOD AND KNOWS GOD.”
LOVE IS THE HALLMARK OF GOD’S QUALITIES. God’s perfect demonstration of Love shows it to be far more than an unselfish interest in the welfare of others. Unfortunately, our society is moving away from God’s love to self-love. But when you think of it, SELF-LOVE IS AN OXYMORON, really the opposite of God’s love. It’s self -centered and selfish rather than selfless and other-centered. God’s love, however, is ACTIVE and Christianity primarily has as its foundation God’s love and concern more than any doctrine. God’s love, in us, is LOOKING FOR WAYS TO HELP OTHERS and ever expanding our capacity to care.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
