Sincerity the Best Qualification!
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.” Romans 12:9
Love is a general topic. We use it everywhere, irrespective of ethnicity, culture, religiosity, or location. Likewise, everyone claims to understand it. Even though there are diverse definitions and beliefs about love, I choose to accept the description that says “God is love.” If there is anything we want to know about love, it is rooted and found in God. He is the initiator and full performance of love.
It’s easy to confess and tell people we love them. Isn’t it? There are times we follow what we feel about telling someone we love them, but what happens when we don’t feel like that? Does the love vanish? Another factual statement is that we find it easy to love godly brethren than the ungodly. Do you struggle with that statement, or do you think it’s true?
1 Timothy 1:5 says, “The goal of our instruction is the love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and a sincere faith.”
We don’t struggle to love people who love us, but we always react strangely or have an unloving mindset towards people we don’t love us. That’s normal in this world and for the natural human. But we need to learn to operate in the supernatural. 1 John 4:8 tells us that “…God is love.” We know that God is a spirit that works in the supernatural.
As believers, our love must be real, genuine, and without dissimulation. The fact that people don’t love us is not a reason for us not to love. Our love is one of our faith test’s critical criteria, so it is placed mandatory for us to learn to love people even when they don’t love us. No evil should be found in us; our desires should always be good and holy. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 says, “but test all things. Hold fast to what is good.”
1. Teach me how to love unconditionally; let your spirit of love dwell in me.
2. Oh Lord, let my heart be filled with love, and let my lips praise your name.
Absolutely great ????
