DEMONSTRATING LOVE FOR GOD – BY DAVID IBIYEOMIE
Matt.11:11 -Verily I say unto you, among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
As a child of God, you are potentially greater than the greatest names in the Old Testament. This is your birthright in Christ; you are redeemed as the light of the world, the salt of the earth and as a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. You are redeemed into a world of exploits but your love for God is your GATEWAY to that world.
1 cor.2:9 -But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
You cannot truly love God and live an ordinary life.
Eph.3:17-19 -That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.
The higher your love for God, the greater your future. When you love God sincerely, you end up as a highflier in life. To prove that you live God, you must love what He loves which is the love for souls. When you are passionate about soul winning, you are demonstrating your love for God.
John 21:15 -So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
John 10:16 – And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Soul winning is your capital proof of love for God and soul winning is the ministry of every redeemed child of God.
2 Cor. 5:18 -And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
God does not reward efforts; He rewards your result. When you see soul winning as a kingdom necessity, your commitment to it will produce rewardable results. The love of God engenders supernatural breakthroughs because when you love God, you gain sweat-less access to the deep things of God and revelation is always in command of breakthroughs.
From today, as you begin to demonstrate the love for God, you will never be stranded again in your life! God will continually show you what to do to come out of where you are to where you ought to be. He will show you your redemptive benefits and how to take delivery of it. Henceforth, you will enjoy divine favour! The favour of God will rewrite your story! Everything that satan has withheld in your life, I declare them released in the name of Jesus! Be blessed in Jesus name –Amen!
God bless you
