Selfless Love II

You are called to love like God loves - Rom 5:5. The God kind of love is selfless and unconditional - 1 Cor 13:4-8. This love is not natural in nature; it is supernatural. In order to walk in the God kind of love you will need to tap into the assistance of the Holy Spirit - Rom 5:5. You will need to overcome the temptation to respond according to the flesh by the help of the Holy Spirit.

The God kind of love is sacrificial. It will cost you something. It will feel easier to not walk in love. In fact you may feel justified to walk in malice and strife in order to get a message across to another person. You may also feel that the other person doesn't deserve love because of their actions. However in all situations including these examples you are called to express the love of God - 1 Cor 13:4-8.

Friend God expects you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice - Rom 12:1. This means that you will have to ignore your flesh's desires to act contrary to the God-kind of love. In other words you will have to make the sacrifice to walk in the God-kind of love irrespective of the situation. No matter how difficult it may seem, you have what it takes to love like God. Let the love of God be expressed through you.
