The Attitude Of Love
By Rusty Wilson
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. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
- 1 John 4:7-11
Something that we should all work on. on a daily basis and it’s our attitude of Love. Romans 5:5 says, …the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. When we received Jesus into our heart, we received the Love of God. We received His Love by faith and we show His Love by faith.
The attitude of Love isn’t just when we are talking to others in fellowship, but also when we respond to others, whether we are responding to them from a positive, encouraging comment or a negative, hateful comment. Our response is extremely important.
When we respond, we must make sure that we are responding with an attitude of Love and not an attitude of selfishness, hatefulness or any way the enemy wants us to respond. As I have learned from the teachings that the Holy Spirit has ministered through our Pastor, that not every comment requires a response. Just because someone comments, doesn’t mean we have to respond. We must allow the Holy Spirit to direct us in this area and all areas.
Let’s continue to make it a priority (this is a continuous work) to respond to others with an attitude of Love, because the attitude of Love could be the example someone is needing for their life to be changed and to be won into the Kingdom of God!
