The Love Of God In You!

 

Proverbs33v4“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Matthew 22:37-40)

“And now abide  faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love“(1 Corinthians 13:13 NKJV)

“But when the Holy Spirit control our lives, He will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control” (Galatians 5:22 NLT)

Love endures long and is patient and kind; love is never envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride);  it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly.
Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].”
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8 AMP)

 

Wow! The first time I read this Scripture, as a new born-again believer, defining the Love of God in the Amplified Version of the Bible I was blown away. Continue reading

Actions That Correspond With Faith

Kenneth Hagin Faith Lesson No. 22

Bible Text: James 2:14-22 ; Matthew 7:24-27

Central Truth: The actions of a doer of the Word coincide with his confession.

One of the greatest mistakes many believers make is to confess their faith in the Word of God and at the same time contradict their confession by wrong actions.  We say that we are trusting God to provide for our financial needs, but at the same time we are worrying about how we’re going to pay our bills.  There is no corresponding action there.  One minute we confess that the Word of God is true, and the very next moment we repudiate everything we say by wrong actions. Our actions have to correspond with our believing if we are to receive from God. Continue reading

Confession Of The Believer’s Privileges In Christ

Kenneth Hagin Faith lesson No. 13

Bible Text: 11 Corinthians 5:17 ; Ephesians 1:7, 8 ; Acts 17:28

Central Truth: When we know what we are in Christ and think in line with that, when we believe that and confess that, then there can be no failure for us.

In our last lesson we said that confession is actually three things: first, affirming something we believe; second, testifying to something we know; and third, witnessing for a truth we have embraced. The major problem for us to face is to know exactly what we are to confess. Continue reading

The Resurrected Life

 

“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4).

 

col2v6-7

 

So often we, as believers, forget the awesome work Jesus Christ did for us on the cross. In Christ is the newness of life. We are “a new creation…all things have become new”(2 Corinthians 5:17), and so we were instructed to walk in the newness of life. Our old man was crucified with Christ and the life which we now live in the flesh, we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us (Galatians 2:20).

But how do we walk in this newness of life? Continue reading

Know Your Position In Christ

 

1Corinthians 1v30-31

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new “(2 Corinthians 5:17)

 

When we accept  Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we experience  a rebirth in which our old  spiritually dead nature was replaced by a  new nature of spiritual life. We become sons and daughters of the Most High God and is in a position to receive our inheritance from Father God just as Jesus received from Him. We become an heir to everything God says we are, everything God says we have, and everything God says we can do because we are now in Christ Jesus. Continue reading
