We can't teach people to love others. We can't teach people to serve others. We can only show them the pure holy love of God that love others and serves others by His Spirit.
God's Love come from experiencing God Himself who is love. Love one another has a condition: AS I HAVE LOVED YOU.
If you are not experiencing the AS I HAVE LOVED YOU CONTINUALLY, how can you continually LOVE OTHERS. LOVE BEGETS LOVE.
GOD DOES NOT TRY TO LOVE US. HE LOVE US. WE LOVE HIM, BECAUSE HE FIRST LOVED US.
LET'S STOP TRYING TO TELL OTHER'S THEY MUST LOVE AND BECOME THE REFLECTION OF JESUS TO THE WORLD OF GOD'S PURE HOLY LOVE.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABIDING IN LOVE CONTINUALLY, YOU CAN NOT GIVE LOVE CONTINUALLY. IF YOU ARE NOT ABIDING IN THE VINE CONTINUALLY, YOU ARE CUT OFF AS BRANCH AND ON YOUR OWN YOU WITHER AWAY BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF LOVE'S ABIDING WORK.
NO BRANCH CAN BEAR FRUIT UNLESS IT ABIDES IN THE VINE. JESUS SAID, LIVE IN ME, AND I WILL LIVE IN YOU, DWELL IN MY LOVE AND MY LOVE WILL DWELL IN YOU.
APART FROM ME YOU CAN DO NOTHING.. INCLUDING "TRYING" TO LOVE OTHERS. LOVE IS AN ACTION WORD BECAUSE IT COMES FROM A LIVING GOD WHO CONTINUALLY LOVES US. A GOD WHO WANTS US TO GO FROM GLORY TO GLORY IN THE EXPERIENCE OF HIS LOVE.
WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET, AND WHO YOU SEE IS WHO YOU GET.
JESUS SAID, YOU HAVE NOT CHOSEN ME, BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU AND I ORDAINED YOU THAT YOU MAY BEAR GOOD FRUIT AND THAT YOUR FRUIT WOULD REMAIN.
Beloved, the more you experience the depth of God's love, the more you are changed by it. Perfect love cast out all fear, for there is no fear in love.
Only when you experience and open your heart up to God to be loved, receive love, can you give God's pure holy love to others and walk in that love. Apart from him you can do nothing.
You can't study love to live in it. You can fast love to live in it. You can't practice God's love in the flesh and try to give it to others. The best a human being can do is love conditionally in human love and that love fades and fails. God's love never fails.
Let us today stop trying to "love the world" when we are not letting God in to love us more and more. Let us stop trying to show human love and believe it is God's love in us.
1st Corinthians 13 AMPC tells us what God's love is. Ephesians 3 tells us how to get it, keep it, dwell in it, and how we can experience it more and more.
14 For this reason [[a]seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].
16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, [b]through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses [c]mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] [d]unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and [e]become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it).
