There is no greater power in heaven, or earth, than God is love!
God being Spirit, and God being love, can only be encountered by experience!
Love is the power that overcomes all things!
Love never fails!
“Charles Spurgeon said: ‘You stand before God as if you were Christ, because Christ stood before God as if He were you’. God works faith, as the foundation of hope, onto a conclusion of fulfillment, through love. The greatest of all these is love. The God-kind (heavenly kind) of love is that which is selfless. This is when your soul is delivered from itself. The reality is, His love must be experienced. Ultimately, if His love doesn’t become part of the fibre of who you are, you are just acting religion. You want the real thing – His love to be your experience, where you are able to ooze, and manifest, the love of God in all environments of your life. For that to happen, there has to be the pressing into where that which is not the love of God is overtaken by that which is God’s love. All things work together for good to them that love God. Love is the power that overcomes all things. Love is the force of His Kingdom.”
1 John 4:7-13 (TPT)
7 Those who are loved by God, let his love continually pour from you to one another, because God is love. Everyone who loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of him. 8 The one who doesn’t love has yet to know God, for God is love. 9 The light of God’s love shined within uswhen he sent his matchlessSon into the world so that we might live through him. 10 This is love:He loved us long before we loved him. It was his love, not ours. He proved it by sending his Son to be the pleasing sacrificial offering to take away our sins. 11 Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life!
12 No one has ever gazedupon the fullness of God’s splendor. But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us. 13 And he has given us his Spirit within us so that we can have the assurance that he lives in us and that we live in him.
