For the last couple of days I have been in prayer for one of my friends. This morning as I was in prayer she dropped in my spirit again and as I began to pray for her I prayed that she would seek CHRIST and cry out to HIM for healing and deliverance. As I said that I remembered that she is not a Christian but of another faith. GOD immediately reminded me that just because she does not believe in HIM does not mean HE doesn’t love her. HE loves everyone even those that sin, the back sliders, and again those of different religious backgrounds. GOD then asked me who have I turned away or passed judgment on because they were different than me or not in my circle?
Of course my eyes got big as I thought about the people that I have judged and why I have judged them. I was at a loss for words even as I am writing this I am convicted. Matthew 22:37-40 clearly says Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
GOD loves me (US) with Agape love and I know in order for me to love my neighbors like I love myself I will need to stay in prayer and in the word of GOD.
1 John 5:14-15 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.
I have faith that I can love with the LOVE of GOD!
