Value every person.
Choose to receive and let go of independence.
Become a doorway, a conduit for the supernatural and to worship Jesus by our Love of each other.
In Acts, the account of Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus is evidence of Jesus supernaturally at work in lives to transform them.
His union with us, His bride, from the onset.
Saul was persecuting the early Christians but Jesus, already crucified and departed from this realm, in His encounter said
“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?”
The “me” unites and personifies the Christ in us as Christians.
Puts another layer of truth to the words.
“as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
In the TPT version it says “you demonstrate love for me.”How we treat one another is an indicator as to how we treat Jesus.
We worship Jesus when we give others our love.
We give others our love in how we give them all our attention.
We bring Jesus into their lives when they witness love in our eye.
“Our eyes are the window to our soul.
“We bring Jesus into their lives when we put them before ourselves.
How we care for and love one another, whether they are lovable or not, is our true worship to Jesus.
The degree of love we have is equal to the degree of authority we have.
Our love for someone else is the place where they become more lovely.
Other’s love for us makes us more lovely.
There is a correlation between how we allow people to love us, how we receive love that enables us to reflect Jesus more, for us to be more like Christ, because it takes humility.
Sacrificing ourselves always yields fruit.
Where Christ, God and others are more important.
We did for them.
Always ends in victory.
There is wisdom in knowing that if it is not good it is not the end.
God will brings us to a place of victory before He let’s go of something therefore hold out with hope and expectation.
Forgiveness and humility require great power and are the victory of the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit within us.
We cannot achieve victory in our own strength.
Absolutely everything is fixable when we yield to love.
Jesus will pour out virtue from His own heart to flow through ours and transform us to be the power of love and light that He is in the world.
He will allow us to reflect Love and therefore be Love.
Become the perfect Bride He returns for.
The illustration shows the reflection in the mirror of every person in God’s image carrying Christ’s love from within and being in equal measure valued as Him.
Bearing love into the world pushing back the darkness.
