If you will learn to walk in the supernatural love of God and let it stop being about you. I promise you will stop every argument in every marriage. You will stop every split in the church. It can’t exist. How can there be an argument between me and my wife unless it’s all about self? When it is about me there is going to be an argument. Because if it is about me, then it’s woman I’m right and you need to listen and submit. Self-centeredness verses the love of God. This is not a suggestion this is a commandment, that we love just as Jesus loved us and gave His life for us.
He not only died for us, He lived for us. Who are you living for? If you are living for yourself, then you are not living in this love. That’s all sin is, sin is all about self. No one could possibly commit adultery until it is about self. No one ever goes out and commits adultery because they love their spouse and they say honey I love you so much, I’m going to go out and be with this woman and I will check with you later. That is not love. That’s not what God is talking about when He talks about this kind of love.
I have had people sit in my office and tell me, I no longer love my husband. I said, that’s all right God says to love your enemies. They didn’t want to hear that. This is a true story, they didn’t want to love their husband. They wanted to hold on to their rights and their self-centeredness. It was about them and not about their spouse. We are not only told to love our spouse just like Jesus loved you, but we are told to love others and the world just like Jesus loved you. That’s the God kind of love and that is what we are called to.
Religion doesn’t like this. Religion likes for you to come to church and be told how bad the world is and how wonderful you are. God is going to get the world and send them to hell, but brother God likes you. God loves the world. He loves them and He loves us. He wants us to walk in that love towards one another, towards the world and towards our family and be an example of the love of God in the earth today. I believe this with my whole heart.
Romans 8:29 says, “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” God has predestined you and me to be like Christ. God’s plan for your life is to look just like Jesus. I want to ask you a question, did Jesus heal any sick people? God wants you to heal sick people. Did Jesus cast out devils? Did Jesus love the unlovely, the sinner and the ungodly? Yes! And God has predetermined that you and I look just like Jesus, walk just like Jesus and talk like Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, ” All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable, for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God so loved the world that He gave His Son. Jesus so loved the world that He gave His life. God wants you thoroughly equipped (furnished) so that you can walk in the love of God. Why? Because the love of God is all about giving.
