The word for you today is from 1 John 4:10 (NLT)
‘This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.’
How to increase your love level…
We increase our capacity to love as we receive the unconditional love of Jesus.
Friend, if you do not have a revelation of the love of Christ for you and if you have not experienced His unconditional love… it is going to be IMPOSSIBLE for you to love God or others with TRUE scriptural love as defined in 1 Corinthians 13.
Many ministers emphasize how that we must love God and others more.
They quote Jesus, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Here Jesus was teaching the Law to the Jews under the Old Covenant.
In 1 John 4:10 the New Covenant Law of love is taught… “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” The Old Covenant Law focuses on, and commands that those under it do what they cannot do [It’s job was to show the futility of man trying to earn righteousness toward God by his works.] The New Covenant under Jesus focuses on what HE has done for us.
The Old Covenant Law is full of commandments that nobody could keep… Jesus fulfilled EVERY command under the Law for us and then established a NEW and BETTER covenant in which He fulfilled EVERY command that we could not fulfill. Now, instead of feeling guilty that you do not love enough… Just freely RECEIVE more LOVE from Jesus and watch your love level grow supernaturally!
