“The greatest of these is love.” (1 Cor. 13:13)
Who is God calling you to love?
Love is not always simple. Love costs something. Love is paramount in God’s Kingdom. It makes up the pinnacle moments in our life.
We tend to think it is what we’ve obtained. A level or a status. A house and some stuff to pass down to our kids. A good sense of self. A fine and respectable status amongst men. God conveys, “Nope. It’s love.”
Love me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and love your neighbor as yourself.
Everything else is peripheral; love is the main thing.
Who are you loving? Who is God calling you to more greatly love? Don’t fear the outcome.
The outcome belongs to the Lord. The out-working work of love belongs to us.
And, it starts with us and God in the quiet. In the reality of what we face. In the truth of our heart. In the call of our soul.
Us, looking up to Him. Him, pouring out the love, grace, and mercy we so desperately need. We look-up. He pours down. We go out. He gives us the love to hand-out.
Are you making time for God’s love to so work in you that it flows out of you?
It’s a worthy question. Because the greatest of all things, the most enduring — of all things — is love.
