TOPIC: The Power of Love
BIBLE TEXT: But faith…worketh by love. Galatians 5:6
SCRIPTURE READING: Romans 13:8-14
I used to wonder why we believers didn’t see more of the power of God operating among us than we do. With what we know about faith and the Word, it seemed to me signs and wonders and miracles should be happening all the time.
So, one day I asked, “Lord, why isn’t the power of God turned up to a higher volume in the Church?”
Do you know what He said? He told me we weren’t walking in enough love yet.
God wants us to have power. But first, He has to be sure we’ll use that power in love. He wants to know that we won’t take it and mix it with judgment and criticism and blast people out of the water.
Kenneth, He said, I can’t afford to back your words with supernatural power in a church service on Sunday morning and then have you get on the freeway that night and lash out at someone because he pulled over into your lane. You’d blow him off the highway. I can’t leave the power of Almighty God at a high volume in the mouth of an unmerciful fool.
Then He reminded me of a time I took my son, John, hunting. He was just a little guy at the time, barely big enough to keep his gun from knocking him on his back every time he’d pull the trigger. I was teaching him how to shoot, and he was coming along pretty well.
That day we were walking along out at Gloria’s grandparents’ farm and John spotted one of the biggest tarantula spiders I’d ever seen. It was clinging to the wall of the barn. When John saw that spider, he took aim. He was going to blow that bug away.
If I hadn’t stopped him, he would have too. And it wouldn’t have dawned on him until it was all over that he was going to blow a hole in the barn at the same time. From my grown-up perspective, I could see that would be foolishness. He couldn’t. He was looking through the eyes of a child.
Do you want God to put a shotgun of spiritual power in your hand, so you can blow the works of the devil to kingdom come? Then focus on love. Pursue it. Practice it. Study it. Grow up in it. Then you’ll see the power of God operating through you.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this prayer.
I come to you, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with you. I ask you to forgive me for all my sins. Wash Me Away from All Unrighteousness and Cleanse Me Clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in my heart that God raised me,
Thank you for saying that prayer. You are in Christ now. Old things have passed away. HALLELUYAH
