KNIT IN LOVE

KNIT IN LOVE

“That their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, ”

Colossians 2:2

The believer’s love walk is an integral part of his relationship with God and even people.  Its infact the only thing we owe man,Romans 13:8 “owe no man anything, but to love one another;for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

Love is a debt we owe everyone, and we will never get that debt paid.

 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love (1 John 4:7-8).      

The Apostle John gives an encapsulated version of the revelation of the Pauline doctrine in 1 John 4:16: “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” So, you in Christ, and Christ in you is about His love seen in you and expressed through you!

God is love, and as His children, we’re to love as Christ loved us. The Bible says, “THEREFORE BE imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father].

Love makes you give of yourself to others without thinking of what you’ll get in return. It makes you think of others and accept them just as they are. They don’t have to act to deserve your love, for love is unselfish and doesn’t seek its own. It breaks the barriers of race, ethnicity and social status. It makes it possible for you to see the beauty in others and appreciate them for who they are.

The Apostle therefore prays that we are KNIT in Love. We must give expression to the love that has been shed abroad in our heart ,both to those that are of the household of faith and those that are without that we may win them.
