Prayer 26/11/2022

Luke 19:35-36
Then they brought him to Jesus. And they threw their own clothes on the colt, and they set Jesus on him.
And as He went, many spread their clothes on the road.

My Father and my God, me and my family honour You highly not because of what we will benefit from You but because of whom You are and accept our appreciation in the name of Jesus Christ.

What is true love?

WHAT IS TRUE LOVE?

Years ago, when I lived in Lugbe, a suburb in Abuja, a number of girls lived in a building adjacent to me. They strictly lived to be picked up by men.

The girls will go out at night and return the following morning. I, and other neighbors were angry. The girls were very noisy. They never cared who their noise disturbed.

One day, the landlord had enough. He evicted all of them. Their properties were thrown out. All the girls found somewhere else to relocate, except one. She had no place to go.

She kept her belongings in our building corridor, and on nights that she was home, she’d sleep there… and that was on most nights.

The tenants in the building, including my husband and I, met to plan how to put her and her belongings out. Surprisingly, one tenant, a woman was against the idea. She asked, “What would you all do if this girl was your daughter, sister or relative?” She told us that this girl and her friends have, no doubt made wrong choices. But she reminded us that we too, at some point in our past also made wrong choices. But God still held us close to His heart and saved us. She cautioned us as Christians to consider what Christ Jesus would do.

Everyone was quiet. But none suggested any way to help the now homeless lady.

Later on, the same woman who defended her at the tenant meeting had a talk with her husband. They agreed to house the girl in their moderate apartment.

They invited the girl into their home and told her she could stay with them. The homeless girl was shocked when the woman said to her, “We know what you do for a living. And you are free to go out at night and come back the next day if that’s what you choose to do. Feel free to eat our food. Use the other bedroom. It is yours as long as you live here. Live like one of us. We did not bring you in to judge you. But we will continue to pray for you. Hopefully, the spirit will talk to you…, at your own time.”

The girl was dumbfounded. And she cried. At nights, she stayed home. Going out to look for men gradually became a thing of her past.

She would join the family for morning devotion and go to church with them on Sundays.

One day, the woman, now her landlord of sorts told her of her husband’s decision to pay for her to register in a university. The lady gained admission into a university. She graduated on top of her class and got a good job. But even before she graduated, with a university grant for outstanding students, she had started a business of her own.

Today, when you enter her office, she has this woman and her husband’s photo on the wall behind her desk. The photo has the inscription, ” ‘My parents,’ the only Christians I know”.

Folks, what is true love?
Many Christians cannot answer to this question.
We resist the true essence of love but gossip around the house.

The truth is, “Christ Jesus died for us.” Why would a righteous man die for sinners?
That’s what love is.

What can you do for someone even against your intrinsic instincts?

Every one we have chosen not to forgive, deserve forgiveness. That is the sacrifice that a Christian, who shows true love makes.

Love is not the practice of loving beautiful people. True love is shown by being willing to truly love those that many look down upon.

How many less fortunate people have you taken home from church after service to feed?
Why do we feed the rich, and don’t feed the needy?

Why do we scorn people who look like prostitutes? We look at children who look unkept and we shake our heads in disapproval, warning our children to avoid such people.

But what kind of people do we think that heaven is waiting up there for?

Let’s not lose the purpose of life because of what we have almost achieved.

Can someone say of you, “I met a true believer in you?”
Think about it.

Where is your true Love?

Have a great day.

Love

Faith Matters: Love | ksqd.orgFrom: https://ksqd.org

What is love?

According to Cambridge dictionary, love can be defined as an intense feeling of deep affection. Love is when you choose to be at your best even if the other person is not at their best. Furthermore, love is when what you want is never important but rather what the other person want or needs is more important. When you are love with somebody, you will always want to be with the person.

According to the bible, love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth, always hopes, always perseveres – 1 Corinthians 13 : 4 – 7.

That is the type of love that God has for us which make Him to be very patient with us no matter what we do. I have come accross many people who always say that this person is known for doing bad and God still permits the person to live and continue doing the bad the person is known for. No matter our error or mistakes, God’s love is greater. He bestowed such a great love on us even when we don’t merit it. He destroyed the world with flood in Genesis 7:1-24 when Noah was six hundred years of age. You see many people today when you talked to them about Christ, they will say that they have been in the church ever since they were born and yet they are not yet up to hundred years. Noah was six hundred and he was still following God’s command and that will be a topic for another day.

In Genesis 9:11 The bible says that God made a covenant with Noah that He will never again destroy the earth with flood. While? Because of love.

TYPES OF LOVE

Eros love (1 Corinthians 7:7-8): This comes from a Greek word ”erotas” which means intimate, sexual or romantic love. This type of love has to do with physical attraction.

Phileo love (Mark 12:31): This is brotherly love. Many people viewed phileo love as the ideal love. It is about showing loyalthy, giving sacrifice and showing an appreciation. According to Aristotle, he highlited that a person can feel philia towards someone for one of three reasons: that the person is pleasant; that the person is useful and that the person is good. He explained further that one must feel love for themselve before being able to feel love for others. Some other people feel that the best philia love is the one that grows from eros.

Storge love (Exodus 20:12; 1John 4:16): This is the type of love that exist between parents and children.

Agape love (1 John 4:8; John 13:34-35; Romans 5:8; John 3:16): This type of love is universal and charirtable. This is God’s kind of love. This is the love we have inside that we give freely to others regardless of our relationship with them. The idea of this type of love is that you don’t need to know or have met the other person before but still you want to help him or her, cooperate with them or do something good with them or towards them. Where this kind of love exist, we will always tell the truth to the other person, we will laways respect the person, we will always obey the person, we will always be patient with the person, we will always forgive the person no matter the error, we will always want to hear from the person and know his or her wellbeing, we will always want to appreciate what the person is doing. (To be continued.)

Prayer: Thank You Lord for your great love that You have bestowed on me and my family. Give us the grace to show love to others as You have shown to us no matter what they done to us in the name of Jesus christ.
