Overcoming Hate With Love and Having Peace…

Where there is hate there is no love and where there is no love there is no peace. 

The Command To Love:
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. (‭John‬ ‭15‬:‭12‬ KJV)
The Peace Of God:
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ KJV)

Being God’s Love and Loving One Another…

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 KJV)
Loving one another is not a suggestion. As we see here in these verses that Love is of God for God is Love so we see as the body of Christ, He loved us first and He sent His Son to be the propitiation (Greek- atonement) for our sins. The Amplified says, the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins. 
To love one another is a command as we are the body of Christ and we are to walk in Love and be His Love as Jesus was when He walked the earth. We have been enabled to be His Love. Walking in Love and being God’s Love is His will and provision.
They that love God will not intentionally cause strife with others. They will intentionally walk in Love and Love one another. Let us all focus on walking in and being the Love of God! We are blessed and we will continue to be blessed by our obedience to God! Be Blessed! 

Forgiveness! Part 2

We Wrestle Not Against Flesh And Blood!

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭6‬:‭12‬ KJV)
We aren’t supposed to be wrestling or fighting against each other. When we fight with each other the devil just sits back a watches with a big smile on his face. We make his job easy and doing exactly what he wants us to do. That gives him the glory.
Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ says,
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 
All the devil has to do is get a child of God to think and say something about a brother or sister in the Lord and they start arguing and the fight is on. What the one needs to do is bear with the endurance and not let what they say or do bother them and pray for them. (This is the disciplining of ourselves).
They need to stop, apologize and forgive each other and repent for allowing strife and division to enter in. You may ask, what if they don’t forgive me. You keep that between them and God and you continue to keep forgiveness in you heart for them, no matter what they say or do. What they say about you is between them and God. 
When we choose to forgive the person that makes us angry or tries to fight with us, we say, No, I will not fight or wrestle and I refuse to allow strife to come in (Again this is the disciplining of ourselves). I choose to walk in the Love of God and be His love.
Let’s let this be an encouragement to ourselves and love one another and have peace with one another.

Forgiveness!

How do you forgive someone who hurt you? With the Love of God. 

Romans‬ ‭5‬:‭5‬ says, And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 
Check your love level. If it seems a little low ask God to fill you with His love and to help you love that person. 
Reminder that Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13 says, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Forgiveness is a choice. Choose to forgive today. 

Rooted And Built Up In Him.

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. (‭Colossians‬ ‭2‬:‭6-7‬ KJV)

Renewing Our Mind With The Word Of  God. 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2 KJV)

Renewing our mind with the word of God. Let us think on Philippians 4:8, Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
