“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you
also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples if you have love for one

John 13:34-35‬

Your love walk is the yardstick to prove your spiritual identity and your maturity in Christ.
Love is a beautiful thing that everyone wants to experience. But unfortunately, we have become
a religious society that places so much value on charisma [gifts], when we should really be
focused on the cultivation of this character [nature] of love.

If your spiritual authority and submission are not rooted in love to serve one another, then it is not
an accurate reflection of the heart of Christ and His Kingdom. The expression of Christ’s authority
is by love and the goal of submission is for service [to serve God’s purpose].
Love requires a sacrifice we must all make, and this will make our world a better place.
You are obligated to walk with complete sincerity and commitment of love to God and to one
another, because no matter the level of your spirituality, the prophetic powers and the
understanding of all the secret truths and mysteries you possess, without love, you are a useless

“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and
though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” -I
Corinthians 13:2‬‬

Practising real love pleases God. This means we are obeying His command to love each other.
The result is, that it gives us access to the unique grace that changes our world through prayers,
as it produces answered prayers.

Having faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of God and obeying God’s command to love Him and
others, is the secret to this amazing life.

As we keep His commands – to walk in faith and love, we can experience this amazing grace, a
life without impossibilities with God. We will be able to stretch our hands out and receive what
we asked for because we’re doing what He said, doing what pleases Him.

Your life can become a living testimony of transformation and miracles today, if you keep His
command, to walk in faith and love intentionally.

Love is God’s nature. Love is God’s language. Your life’s purpose must be an extension of God’s
love to others.

Let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of
God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the
first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know Him if you don’t love. This is how
God showed His love for us: God sent His Only Son into the world so we might live through Him.
This is the hour, for us as the church, to show forth the love and grace of God to our world! Love
is the underlying basis of the Church’s function, and it is the reflection of Christ’s nature. Let’s
speak the truth in love and build one another in love. Let love be the guiding base of whatever
you do.
