"Put On Love"
“Put On Love”
Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.
“Beyond all these things…”
The things we saw yesterday…
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.
These are good things.
These are things that we should manifest.
But, beyond these things, we are to put on love.
This is not a love of the flesh that we create.
This is the love of the Most High God that is within us by His grace and mercy.
We are to appropriate that which is already there.
Yes, we can quench it.
Yes, we can reject it.
Yes, we can walk in rebellion.
All this is sin.
Let us choose to walk in the love of the Lord.
His love is the perfect bond of unity.
The Body of Christ is, by definition, unified.
We are His.
It is love that is the perfect bond.
Love holds and maintains the unity of the Body.
Put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Bear with one another.
Forgive one another.
Put on Love.
