1 Corinthians 13:1 “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.”
With Compassion, Like CHRIST!
Love is for giving; not hoarding or trading.
It must not be bartered, exchanged or transferred.
For such terms describe a transaction of kind. As such, only wholly surrendered, it thrives.
Yet disguised as as another so measurements — partial are weighed to compare… leaving Memory’s marking.
But GOD sent HIS Love through the gift of HIS SON! HE WHO gave all for sinners
with whom we are found.
Yet spotless because of CHRIST’s endless Compassion, so are we directed to mirror the same.
So Love is for giving, forgiving and greater with Thanksgiving’s praise! Therefore, Love…like HE does!
As HIServant re-spared and reminded to follow HIS steps of such divine Affection… without Transaction’s measure,
Devotional: 1 John 3:1 “See what kind of love the FATHER has given to us, that we should be called children of GOD; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know HIM.”
What measureless outpouring has been fully given to us! Nothing partial, left unfinished, incomplete nor “less than!”
1 John 1:9 “We love HIM because HE first loved us.”
So loving like CHRIST requires an “equal” response to HIS eternal outpouring.
It stands to reason that we give HIM
and the Body…all our Love since HE first loved us!
1 Corinthians 13:7-8a “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends!”
Let us, oh my soul, love them like JESUS! Every soul HE directs my way, every heart that is in need of HIS unmerited compassion and heavenly understanding…just as I am.
Thank YOU, FATHER, for YOUR finished work which seals us in AND by YOUR love…unto that long-awaited instant of Rapture!
Amen and amen!
