Love’s Attributes (13) Love Believes all things
Love’s Attributes (13)
(#167 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
“Love believes all things!” (1 Corinthians 13:7)
Love believes all things, and therefore, Yahweh believes all things!
It’s elementary really. Love believes all things that Yahweh says! This is never a license to conjure up personal hopes and desires as, “your life is not your own!” (1 Corinthians 6:19) It is the mature believer who comes to the conscious revelation that it is easy for man to receive the hope of the blessings; but the wise follower also receives the path to the blessings. The path of obedience (complete mind discipline) and removal of the ego (opposition to the mind of Messiah).
Do you believe that suffering furthers perfection? (James 1:4) Do you believe Yahweh’s rod is a tool of righteousness? Do you believe that life on earth, as it is today, will never be the Kingdom that Yahweh demands allegiance towards? Do you believe Yahshua’s death actually guarantees yours?
If so, we step further into love’s realm. Once we believe “all” things Yahweh says, then we believe we will be transformed into His likeness. Is this not the end goal of His love, to be One with Yahweh?
Son’s and daughter’s believe that what Yahweh claims to be truth, is truth, and what Yahweh says is a lie, is just that. They entertain no carnal fantasies about earth life, and particularly, earth love, just simple truths leading to One love. This is the way, walk in it!
I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves]. (John 13:34-35)
