Perfect Love

John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

The abiding love of God is perfect love. We are not perfect but His love is perfect as He is perfect. This is why I said at the onset of this series that this is a matter of condition of conscience. A changed heart, a changed conscience, a change in behavior, and a change in how we reflect His abiding love.

At one point I said to substitute love for will understand Romans 12:2. Can you see that substituting our will with His love perfects our motivations and choices? Motivation and choices that are based on perfect love will always lead to better results than personal will.

Do you feel the deep abiding love of God within you? If the answer is not a resounding confident yes, then you need to work on your relationship with God. More prayer, communication, more bible study, communication, more faith, communication, more obedience of faith, communication, all these things are basic communication skills in our relationship with our God.

The mature man allows the engrafted word of God (James 1:21) to grow and fill his heart, mind and soul. Loving God with all your heart, mind, and soul is rooted in the engrafted word. Like anything that grows, it must be fed and attended. Pull out the weeds of sin in the garden of your heart.

Guard your heart with integrity and your mind and soul will follow.

Acceptable Love

Hebrews 1:1-3 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

God the Father appointed Jesus Christ to speak for Him. Great but how do we have a relationship with Christ sitting on the throne of heaven?

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

For those of you that might think that the Holy Spirit is just a messenger, allow me to remind you that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are One and you cannot hear One without hearing them all. You cannot speak to One without speaking to them all.

We understand that prayer is conversational. We should listen as well as speak. Relationships are not one way, they are give and receive by nature. Did you realize that reading your bible is conversational?

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

If you are wondering how you can speak into the Word of God as your part of the relationship allow me to remind you of this passage.

James 1:21-22(in part) receive with meekness the engrafted word… be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only…

Actions speak louder than words.
