A LIFE OF LOVE

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

1John 4:16-17

God is love. Love is not just a characteristic of God, it is His nature. If therefore you are born again, love is your nature which is superior to every other nature. You see, whatever dominion we have over the enemy is a matter of authority not power. Cars will stop at the signal of a traffic warden not because he has the power to make them stop, but because they recognize that the State, which is greater than everyone has put the authority to determine the behavior of the traffic in that traffic warden. The devil flees from us when we resist him in Jesus Name because he recognizes the authority invested in our new identity in Christ. Refusing to live in love is denying your identity. If you can deny your identity, why will the devil, the accuser of the brethren not undermine your identity and your dominion.

Moreover, it is only the labour of love that has a an assurance of reward (1Cor 15:58, Heb 6:10). No matter how pius your service may be, if it is not love propelled and love driven, sorry, it is not unto God. God does not accept and cannot reward it! (2Cor 13:1-3). The truth is that someone else is your master if you offer any service without love. That person is the devil. That is why many people wait in vain for rewards that will never come! How do you expect God to pay you when you are not His staff? Can you now see why Jesus will say to some people, “depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity?” (Luk 13:27). They performed miracles and people saw them as serving God but Jesus does not have them in his pay role. They were ghost workers! Or better put, they were workers or staff of Iniquity

If you operate in love, “Let your love be perfectly sincere”. (Romans 12:9 WMTH). God sees the heart and that is why we must never do anything by pretext before Him. Everything is naked before him “…all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:13). Then canyou truely live unto God and walk in dominion with confident assurance of reward. Finally beloved, if you are not serving love you are not serving God for God is love.
