LOVE ONE ANOTHER
Practicing The Consciousness of God’s Presence
Proverbs 27:18a- Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof…
Keepeth- this indicates a consciousness relationship between you and what you are trying to keep. For example, to pay attention to a tree, to nurture it so it can blossom. Keeping a tree so it can blossom requires a lot of attention. It is time consuming and demands patience. A man that will keep a tree (have intimate relationship with the tree), must first be conscious of the existence of that tree. Consciousness of God’s presence is not an end; it is a means to an end. It should lead you to a stronger level of intimacy/relationship. Intimacy is the basis of our creation: without it, nothing is possible. Whatever you do that is not a product of intimacy is not valued by God. Whosoever pays that kind of attention to God will blossom just like a tree planted by rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in due season. Such a one will bear the fruit of the Spirit revealed in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance. You can’t bear fruits except you abide. Those who keep, abide, nurture the tree will bear the fruits thereof.
Knowing The Defeat of The Devil
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight, Colossians 1:21-22. The devil’s agenda to make humanity the perpetual enemy of God was defeated when Christ came to die. Our past sins have been thoroughly washed away. We have been made righteous by Christ Jesus and now appear before the Father as holy, unblameable and unreproveable.
SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
Are You Ready For The Coming Of The Lord?
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. Romans 6:12-13
Your life on earth will determine where you will spend eternity. If you are accepted as the bride of Christ, Heaven will be your home forever. But if you are rejected by Him, hell will be your destination and eternal home.
REFERENCE: John 13:34- A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
