TOPIC: Love Never Fails (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries Monday, 10 September 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 7:36-47
MEMORY VERSE: “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.” – 1 Corinthians 13:8
Love is a special and wonderful spiritual fruit that is enduring. The gifts of prophecy, knowledge, and tongues are vital in the body of Christ, but they will not take anyone to heaven. You may brag of spiritual gifts like the Corinthians, but the benefit does not go beyond this world. You may perform miracles, signs and wonders, but if you focus on these only, you will miss a great deal. You may speak diverse kinds of tongues that are unequalled in the congregation, but if you get carried away by this, you are already in the snare of the devil. The spiritual gifts of prophecy, power, miracles, knowledge, and tongues will cease and perish with the works you have done with them if they are done without love, because love will endure forever.
God is love and with love He created us and gave us all things. Even when Adam failed God, God’s love did not fail but continues from everlasting to everlasting. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). When man would have been left alone to face the consequences of his sins, God’s love still made a way of escape for the fallen man. This is an example for us to follow when dealing with one another. Love is enduring and what it produces will endure. Love produces obedience of the greatest commandment. Love produces divine acceptance and approval. Love makes the Lord to be pleased with you as you love others unconditionally. When you love someone, you will trust him and will always be anticipating new joys. Faith, hope, and love go together, but it is love that energises faith and hope.
When you love God, you will not like to fail Him. When you love others, you will not hurt them. If you are unable to love others as Christ loved you, you will continually struggle with the works of the flesh and will not be an overcomer. Without love, you cannot be a candidate of heaven. There is no everlasting reward for Christian service that is not rooted in love. Jesus warned that those who fail to identify with Him in love will be denied on the Judgement Day. You may have performed miracles more than Elijah and Elisha, but if your works are not done in love, they will fail along with the spiritual gifts you exercised. May the true love of God enter your life, in Jesus’ name.
WHEN YOU LOVE GOD, YOU WILL NOT WANT TO FAIL HIM; WHEN YOU LOVE OTHERS, YOU WILL NOT WANT TO HURT THEM.
May your spiritual gifts impact your world.
1. Spirit of love that never fails, enter my life now, in the name of Jesus.
2. Fountain of love, flow into my life endlessly, in the name of Jesus.
3. I refuse to walk in the flesh in my ministry and calling, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, empower me to preach and practise true love among brethren, in the name of Jesus.
5. Agents of disunity in the church, scatter unto desolation, in the name of Jesus.
6. My heart, be renewed daily with love and kindness towards others, in the name of Jesus.
7. My labour for Christ shall not perish on the Judgement Day, in the name of Jesus.
