2 John 1:6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
Every instructions of God is for our benefit. When we walk in obedience to His instruction we reap the benefit of the same. For example, God said to me sometimes ago to plant a seed, I did, the rest is history. I am still reaping the benefit of the same till today. There is none of His instruction that does not benefit us when we obey.
There are three most important thing has described in scripture. They are hope, faith and love, but the Bible says the greatest of all of them is love. Now this does not mean that you neglect the rest. As a matter of fact, all are product of the same, eternal life. But the highest expression of this life is love.
When you become born again, God want to communicate to you the hope of your calling. Ephesians 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the HOPE to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.
This is what we call vision for living. This is the purpose of your existence. Your reward before the judgment seat of Christ is based on this. Most Christian become born again and the next place they want to go is heaven. This is a good desire, but your life is larger than that. God has a purpose (hope of your calling) for your life.
This hope cannot come into manifestation except by faith. Without faith, your hope will remain in abstract. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. No matter how powerful your hope of calling, without faith it will not materialise.
As powerful as your hope and faith is, without love they are dead on arrival. Love is what give meaning to your hope and faith. It is the revelation of the Father’s heart for communicating to you the hope in the first place. This love has filled the highest height and the lowest deep. This love is not earthly, it is an expression of life in us, eternal life.
Till tomorrow, keep walking in His counsel.
I pray that the eyes of my heart is enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which he has called me, the riches of His glorious inheritance in me.
