“What is the number one goal in your life? What are the things you’re aiming to accomplish, the dreams you want to achieve? … No mater what it is, there is something even more important you can accomplish. It is something that you as a believer should “eagerly pursue and seek to acquire.” It should be “your aim, your great quest.” (1 Corinthians 14:1Amp)
What is this great quest? The goal of having your life ordered by and overflowing with the love of God. Human love is changeable… The love of God, which is the kind of love you and I are called to live, is altogether different. It is not changeable First Corinthians 13:4-8 tells us precisely what its characteristics are. When you were born again, God put Himself and His own nature of love inside you. Romans 5:5 says He poured out His love in your heart through the Holy Spirit.
“Love is the foundation for the Christian life. When you walk in love, you put yourself in a position where God Himself can protect you. When you quit seeking your own, He seeks your own for you. And He is a great One to have on your side, because when He if for you, no one can stand against you. (Romans 8:31-34) Love is our one and only commandment. Love is the key to God’s wisdom, power, and protection. No wonder the Word says, “Make it your aim, your great quest.”
