THE WAY OF LOVE
1 Corinthians 13:8 “Love never fails.”
1 Corinthians 13:8-10MSG Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.
Fear of failure. It has haunted all of us at some time in our lives. Popular psychology tells us to adjust to it. But the Word of God tells us that there is a failure-proof way to live without it. It is the way of LOVE.
If you want to know real success, you must learn to be moved and motivated by love. That’s how Jesus was when He was on the earth. Even when John the Baptist was senselessly, brutally murdered and Jesus went away to be alone, He didn’t deviate from the way of love. When the people followed Him, He was moved with compassion and healed the sick.
This is the way Jesus retaliated. He overcame the works of Satan with compassion. He defeated hatred with love. He attacked Satan in the spirit realm by destroying his works of sickness and disease. Compassion doesn’t strike at the surface of things. It goes to the root of the problem. That’s why it always succeeds.
You may say, “I can’t operate like that. I’m not Jesus.” Yes you can. 1 John 2:5 says His love is perfected in you as you keep His Word.
