OPEN HEAVEN 22 JULY 2023 MESSAGE
Verse 8 of our text which is our memory verse, says: “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love” (1 John 4:8). This Scripture implies that not all people we find in Church know God or can be trusted. The early Church leaders did not take the issue of love lightly because they knew godliness is tested by the amount of love a believer possesses.
Paul the Apostle prayed thus: And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you: To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints. I Thessalonians 3:12-13
It takes love to be godly because God is love. This love made Him give up His only begotten Son as a sacrifice for us so that we would not perish (John 3:16 and 1 John 4:9). Powerful Declarations For Today 22 July 2023
This is the standard that the Almighty God has set for those who claim to be His children. Love makes people go the extra mile in helping others. Jesus commended the good Samaritan in Luke 10:33-37 because the proof of God in us is doing good.
Our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated this as recorded in Acts 10:38: How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
James the Apostle describe love in practical terms when he wrote: “Yea, a man may say Thou hast faith, and l have works: sheweth me thy faith without thy works, and l will show thee my faith by my works” (James 2:18). The proof of godliness is service to humanity, according to 2 Timothy 2:21.
John 15:9 also says: As the Father hath loved me, so have l loved you: continue in my love. It is a divine commandment for all children of God to continue in His love. Are you living in the love of Christ?
