📜 LOVE IS THE UNMISTAKABLE IDENTITY OF CHRIST 📜
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 275 | OCTOBER 1, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples — when they see the love you have for each other.
John 13:35 (TMB)
Many Christians want to be identified with so many things like great memory of scriptures, wonderful preaching skills, miracles, signs and wonders etc. All of these are good indicators that a person may be relating with God very closely. The only issue with them is that the devil can also duplicate them. The devil knows verses (Matt 4:5), can do miracles and show many wonderful signs and wonders (Matt 24:24). The thing He can’t do is to Love!
The unmistakable identity of a Christian is his love life. And the more matured you get in God the more love you manifest (Eph 3:16-19). Anyone who confesses knowledge of God without love is only deceiving himself/herself (1John 4:20) because love is the core nature of God and we are supposed to grow to resemble our Heavenly Father. The Lord Jesus said; Matt 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Rather seek to influence the world with your Love for others than anything else. It is the surest proof that God lives in you. The Lord Jesus left us with one key command and it was on Love, He said John 13:34 Let me give you a new command: Love one another. In the same way I loved you, you love one another. Love is no longer a choice for the child of God, it has become your way of life. And if you noticed, Jesus didn’t say love them as you love yourself, He said Love one another as I loved you. Our love for others is now in contest with the Love Jesus demonstrated towards us.
This means we can no longer hold grudges against people. We can no longer pay people back in their own coin. We can no longer withhold help from people who need it when we become aware of them and finally we can no longer discriminate in the demonstration of our love for people.
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I am a love child of a love God! Love is my core nature; it is my unmistakable identity. I love everyone without discrimination irrespective of their attitude towards me.
