Love is giving your heart to something or someone. Where your heart is, that is where your treasure is. Love comes by knowledge, People love with reason, this means you know when you love. The bible has depth on how to develop the love of God.
Apart from seeking for the presence of your lover, you will want to be like him; talk like him, walk like him, act like him. You wouldn’t ever want to hurt somebody you love. You will always easily forgive whom you love. You treat whom you love with tender care. You will always defend and speak for whom you love.
Love is a more excellence thing. Faith, hope, and love.
Love is the ability to perceive what will hurt another person and avoid it.
When you perceive what will hurt and still go ahead and embark on it, it means you hate, you do not believe in your spouse. You are making expression that means another is not a part of your system, you are not accepting him or her into your world.
Love is the ability to see another person as yourself
True love does not discriminate, it takes everybody as being the same, it depicts what Jesus did on the cross. The blood is for everybody, not only the Israelite – for whosoever. God loves everybody the same, he puts us on the platform, same grace is extended to everybody.
Be Ready To Sacrifice
It means to sacrifice for another. The almighty sacrifice his only son for us. They took Jesus just as they used to take lamb to the altar for sacrifice. The same people that slaughtered him were the same people he was dying to save their lives.
Stop the Grudge and Free Yourself
If you go the altar to pray and you discover that you had any form of quarrel, grudge with anyone; enemy, friend, brother, you have to leave that alter and go the person and settle that score before you are qualified to pray.
There are many people we do not call to say hello, just because they are not friends, or may be they have hurt one way or the other. Sometimes we do not interact with people because we owe them. Most of our bad character, conducts work against us.
Most often we ignore what we think are tiny feud with people, a little disagreement. It may be little with you but has done a lot of harm to others. Nothing is little here.
As believers we should be conscious of every bit of thing we do to make sure they take the right direction, do not ignore anything.
Learn From God Himself
God himself works by love, whatever God does is out of love. Even in dealing with his enemies, God deals with them out of love, even when God is killing or rendering judgement, he does it out of love. No hatred anywhere around God.
As a son of God you must also walk in love with everybody even with your enemies. As believers, we have issues in life only when we do not get it right with God. You might be so spiritual, you pray more than everybody, you fast more than Jesus, you will be having issues like not walking in dominion because you do not walk in love.
If you do not walk in love, you do not walk in God. Walking in love is the perfection state of a believer. This is the last or final stage of spiritual development. You cannot grow higher in God than this level.
One thing I notice with God is that you have to walk in love before he gives you his power. This means you are limited as a believer because you do not walk in love.
There is nothing like vengeance for the believers, you must not pay back. You must be different from what the world is practicing, where is your Christianity if you have to pay back. vengeance only belongs to God.
You are trying to steal what does not belong to you if you pay back. Unbelievers should see your good life and try to emulate. You must be Christ-like. it is the good life in you that attract people to church.
How to Develop The Love of God
Love is consciously developed
Love is a conscious thing, it is consciously developed. Nothing or nobody can force you to love, you consciously make up your mind to love.
It comes out of conviction
You must be convicted to love. The person must have satisfied your admiration, it is earned. The person must be appealing to you, meaning there is something special, not common about the person to you.
Someone loved is special, not common, extraordinary.
Love is developed out of knowledge
The conviction that there is something special about someone comes out of knowledge. There must be knowledge before conviction. It therefore means the more knowledge gained about someone, the more love or the deeper the love.
What I am talking about here is a natural phenomenon, According to the bible, it is different. We just have to follow God’s pattern and instruction to love. The word of God is God.
The more you spend time with the word, the more you spend time with God. The more you stay with God, the more his love rob off on you.
There is nothing like spending time with the understanding of God’s word, the revelation of God’s word; this is the tangibility of Christianity, the bedrock, the foundation in God.
The more you understand God’s word, the more you understand God and his love, subsequently, the deeper you grow in the love of God. The entire bible is based on the love of God.
The first love of God
The first love of God you experience is when you got born again. This was your salvation. This is what Jesus who is God, came down from heaven, took the form of man with humility and died on the cross for the salvation of every human.
The love of God
Biblical we love unconditionally, the knowledge on how to love is completely taken from the word of God, and God’s specification is unconditional love. Whether the person is appealing to you or not, you must love.
Whether the person is related or unrelated, ugly or beautiful, tall or short, slim or fat, black or white; you must love.
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which de-spitefully use you, and persecute you;
It must be the same way you love yourself.
There are people that does not love themselves. You must first be able to love yourself before you can love another. If you hate yourself, it will be difficult to love another person.
If you are able to buy yourself a car, you should be able to buy same even to your enemies. This sounds hard but it is God’s standard for love. Don’t just love your children, do good to other people’s children.
Unless we keep to this standard, we will live in disobedience, and no one should tell me it affect nothing. There is the law of seed time and harvest applicable here
Well, generally love is developed out of the understanding of the knowledge of the word of God. This is how to develop the love of God
