WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing – 1 Corinthians 13:3
When it comes to your life as a Christian, one may propose the question- Tina Turner asked years ago, “what’s love got to do with it”? And the answer is EVERYTHING! When it comes to your praying, preaching, praise, worship, witnessing, sacrifice, service, singing or giving- it profits NOTHING without love. Ephesians 3:17 says, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, ” In other words, no root- no fruit! Everything must be done out of love- not obligation, ritual, or duty, but LOVE. Jesus said this is the greatest commandment in Luke 10:27, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. ” Every other commandment hangs upon this! So what’s love got to do with it- EVERYTHING! Make sure every word you speak and every action you take is rooted and grounded in love today! May the Holy Ghost shed abroad the love of God in your hearts today.
