Love Is Kind – The Healing Power Of Love

Love Is Kind - The Healing Power Of Love Blog Post Banner Image

Love Is Kind – The Healing Power Of Love.


That year, my boyfriend had forgotten my birthday.
I didn’t take it as a big deal since I wasn’t exactly the party, celebration kind of girl. Plus, I rarely celebrated the day myself unless someone else decided to do it on my behalf. Most years, it just went by like any other day unless someone surprised me like happened that particular year.


I was therefore shocked when I got a call from a friend telling me, “When you are in town, please give me a call, I have something that has your name on it and belongs to you.”


When I eventually got to town, my friend had a package with a number of goodies and among them was the biggest, most expensive looking box of Chocolates I had ever seen in my life!


I looked at the box very surprised and speechless. He looked at me, not sure whether I was happy or not. So he went on to explain further, “I didn’t know what to get you. I wanted it to be a surprise so I didn’t ask whether you like chocolates or not. I hope you love them”


I then told him, ‘It’s not that. I’m just really deeply moved right now. That is why I’m speechless.’


He prodded me, “Go ahead and open the box. These are really delicious chocolates. Plus they are rare to find in these parts. I know you will love them.”


I told him, “No! I will open them later, when I’m home and settled. I want to savor them. Slowly and patiently.”


But something deeply intrigued me. So I asked him, ‘Why did you get me all this?’ He then proceeded to tell me, “Simply because I think you deserve this and much more.” I wasn’t very convinced, so I asked him, “Really? Is it not because it was my birthday a few days ago?”


He told me, “It was your birthday? Why didn’t you tell me? I didn’t know.”


I looked at him speechless and with my eyes a little misty. I don’t know if he saw the pain and untold stories in my eyes that day, but he went on to say, “You deserve every beautiful thing in this world.”


I just looked at him quietly. Deeply moved and speechless. I didn’t know what to tell him. But in my mind I kept thinking, ‘Wow! Wow! God still does create them like this! God you still make them this way, there is Hope for humanity after all.”


That day, as I meditated on the events that had happened, the word, Kindness took on a whole new meaning.
.


There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us.

1 John 4:18-19

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

1 Corinthians 13:4

Oh, what an obligation should this thought lay upon your heart to greatly fear the Lord! Remember also that this fear of the Lord is His treasure, a choice jewel, given only to favorites, and to those who are greatly beloved.”

Heart must be set to heart and back to back or there will be no sap from root to branch. And this, I say, must be done by a wound, by a cut.”

The mask fashioned by fluency with all subjects divine hides their real life.”

A Loving Personality Dominates The Bible – Love, Family, And Relationship Quotes – Aiden Wilson Tozer.


“Refuse to be average. Let your heart soar as high as it will.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“When we try to focus our thought upon One who is pure uncreated being we may see nothing at all, for He dwelleth in light that no man can approach unto. Only by faith and love are we able to glimpse Him as He passes by our shelter in the cleft of the rock.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“If we cooperate with Him in loving obedience, God will manifest Himself to us, and that manifestation will be the difference between a nominal Christian life and a life radiant with the light of His face.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Faith is an organ of knowledge, and love an organ of experience.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Only to sit and think of God, Oh what a joy it is! To think the thought, to breathe the Name; Earth has no higher bliss. Father of Jesus, love’s reward! What rapture will it be, Prostrate before Thy throne to lie, And gaze and gaze on Thee.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The greatest encouragement throughout the Bible is God’s love for His lost race and the willingness of Christ, the eternal Son, to show forth that love in God’s plan of redemption. The love of Jesus is so inclusive that it knows no boundaries. At the point where we stop caring and loving, Jesus is still there loving and caring.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Mere acquaintance with correct doctrine is a poor substitute for Christ and familiarity with New Testament eschatology will never take the place of a love-inflamed desire to look on His face.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The love of Christ both wounds and heals, it fascinates and frightens, it kills and makes alive, it draws and repulses. There can be nothing more terrible or wonderful than to be stricken with love for Christ so deeply that the whole being goes out in a pained adoration of His person, an adoration that disturbs and disconcerts while it purges and satisfies and relaxes the deep inner heart.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Love casts out fear, for when we know we are loved, we are not afraid. Whoever has God’s perfect love, fear is gone out of the universe for him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Let me seek Thee in longing,” pleaded Anselm, “let me long for Thee in seeking; let me find Thee in love, and love Thee in finding.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Spinoza wrote of the intellectual love of God, and he had a measure of truth there; but the highest love of God is not intellectual, it is spiritual. God is spirit and only the spirit of man can know Him really. In the deep spirit of a man the fire must glow or his love is not the true love of God.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Spiritual sophistication lacks freshness and warmth; God is far away, and there is little communion and little joy in the Lord. To have a cold heart with little pity, little fire, little love and little worship is spiritual lethargy.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“You can see God from anywhere if your mind is set to love and obey Him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We can exaggerate about many things; but we can never exaggerate our obligation to Jesus, or the compassionate abundance of the love of Jesus to us. All our lives long we might talk of Jesus, and yet we should never come to an end of the sweet things that might be said of Him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“God is so vastly wonderful, so utterly and completely delightful that He can, without anything other than Himself, meet and overflow the deepest demands of our total nature, mysterious and deep as that nature is.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The great of the Kingdom have been those who loved God more than others did.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until he has hurt him deeply.” God actually rises up storms of conflict in relationships at times in order to accomplish that deeper work in our character. We cannot love our enemies in our own strength. This is graduate-level grace. Are you willing to enter this school? Are you willing to take the test? If you pass, you can expect to be elevated to a new level in the Kingdom. For He brings us through these tests as preparation for greater use in the Kingdom. You must pass the test first.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“But when, through the open door of the cross and the name and power of Jesus Christ, I commend myself to the Father’s heart, then God cancels all my past, accepts all my present, swears His holy name for my future and the love of God take me over. Then fear goes out of my heart, because love has come in.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“All things as they move toward God are beautiful, and they are ugly as they move away from Him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Yet if we would know God and for other’s sake tell what we know we must try to speak of his love. All Christians have tried but none has ever done it very well. I can no more do justice to that awesome and wonder-filled theme than a child can grasp a star. Still by reaching toward the star the child may call attention to it and even indicate the direction one must look to see it. So as I stretch my heart toward the high shining love of God someone who has not before known about it may be encouraged to look up and have hope.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“In the deep of His mighty nature God thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires, and suffers as any other person may.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“I trust I speak in love, but the lack in our pulpits is real. Milton’s terrible sentence applies to our day as accurately as it did to his: “The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed.” It is a solemn thing, and no small scandal in the kingdom, to see God’s children starving while actually seated at the Father’s table.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We might be wise to follow the insight of the enraptured heart rather than the more cautious reasoning of the theological mind.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Here is a masterly study of the inner life by a heart thirsting after God, eager to grasp at least the outskirts of His ways, the abyss of His love for sinners, and the height of His unapproachable majesty.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We are often hindered from giving up our treasures to the Lord out of fear for their safety. This is especially true when those treasures are loved relatives and friends. But we need have no such fears. Our Lord came not to destroy but to save. Everything is safe which we commit to Him, and nothing is really safe which is not so committed.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“What God made, God loves, because it’s inconceivable that God should make anything that He didn’t love.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We can exaggerate about many things; but we can never exaggerate our obligation to Jesus, or the compassionate abundance of the love of Jesus to us.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The labor of self-love is a heavy one indeed. Think for yourself whether much of your sorrow has not arisen from someone speaking slightingly of you. As long as you set yourself up as a little god to which you must be loyal there will be those who will delight to offer affront to your idol. How then can you hope to have inward peace?”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“A loving Personality dominates the Bible, walking among the trees of the garden and breathing fragrance over every scene.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“There may be a right opinion of God without either love or one right temper toward Him. Satan is a proof of this.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The work of Christ on the cross did not influence God to love us, did not increase that love by one degree, did not open any fount of grace or mercy in His heart. He had loved us from old eternity and needed nothing to stimulate that love. The cross is not responsible for God’s love; rather it was His love which conceived the cross as the one method by which we could be saved. God felt no different toward us after Christ had died for us, for in the mind of God Christ had already died before the foundation of the world. God never saw us except through atonement. The human race could not have existed one day in its fallen state had not Christ spread His mantle of atonement over it. And this He did in eternal purpose long ages before they led Him out to die on the hill above Jerusalem. All God’s dealings with man have been conditioned upon the cross.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“But the sons of this world have not God; they have only each other, and they walk holding to each other and looking to one another for assurance like frightened children.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Trying to be happy without a sense of God’s presence is like trying to have a bright day without the sun.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly
has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions.There is within the human heart a tough fibrous root of fallen life whose nature is to possess, always to possess. It covets `things’ with a deep and fierce passion. The pronouns `my’ and `mine’ look innocent enough in print, but their constant and universal use is significant. They express the real nature of the old Adamic man better than a thousand volumes of theology could do. They are verbal symptoms of our deep disease. The roots of our hearts have grown down into things, and we dare not pull up one rootlet lest we die. Things have become necessary to us, a development never originally intended. God’s gifts now take the place of God, and the whole course of nature is upset by the monstrous substitution.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“The continuous and unembarrassed interchange of love and thought between God and the soul of the redeemed man is the throbbing heart of New Testament religion.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Let her love God as He is in Himself, and not as her imagination says He is, and pictures Him.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“We get the odd notion that God is showing mercy because Jesus died. No. Jesus died because God is showing mercy.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Millions call themselves by His name, it is true, and pay some token homage to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who or what is ABOVE, and his true position will be exposed. Let him be forced into making a choice between God and money, between God and men, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time. Those other things will be exalted above. However the man may protest, the proof is in the choice he makes day after day throughout his life.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“Therefore I pray in the words of Thy great servant of old, “I beseech Thee so for to cleanse the intent of mine heart with the unspeakable gift of Thy grace, that I may perfectly love Thee and worthily praise Thee.”

Aiden Wilson Tozer


“When God looks at a sinner who still loves his sin and rejects the mystery of the atonement, justice condemns him to die. When God looks at a sinner who has accepted the blood of the everlasting covenant, justice.”

Love Is An Exotic – Love, Family, And Relationship Quotes – Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“There must be knowledge of God before there can be love to God: there must be a knowledge of divine things, as they are revealed, before there can be an enjoyment of them.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Love is an exotic; it is not a plant which will flourish naturally in human soil, it must be watered from above. Love to Jesus is a flower of a delicate nature, and if it received no nourishment but that which could be drawn from the rock of our hearts it would soon wither.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“In the Salem of our peaceful hearts, the name of Jesus is great beyond compare: He has won our love, and He shall wear it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the windows which hope has opened.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“God could not have given this promise, except from love and grace; therefore it is quite certain his Word will be fulfilled.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“There is no physician like Him, none can save as He can; we love Him, and He loves us, and therefore we put ourselves into His hands, accept whatever he prescribes, and do whatever He bids.We feel that nothing can be wrongly ordered while He is the director of our affairs; for He loves us too well to let us perish, or suffer a single needless pang.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“O child of God, be more careful to keep the way of the Lord, more concentrated in heart in seeking His glory, and you will see the loving-kindness and the tender mercy of the Lord in your life.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“He who does not hate the false does not love the true; and he to whom it is all the same whether it be God’s word or man’s, is himself unrenewed at heart.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“My Lord, I leave the infinite to Thee, and pray Thee to put far from me such a love for the tree of knowledge as might keep me from the tree of life.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Love and self-denial for the object loved go hand-in-hand. If I profess to love a certain person, and yet will neither give my silver nor my gold to relieve his wants, nor in any way deny myself comfort or ease for his sake, such love is contemptible; it wears the name, but lacks the reality of love: true love must be measured by the degree to which the person loving will be willing to subject himself to crosses and losses, to suffering and self-denials. After all, the value of a thing in the market is what a man will give for it, and you must estimate the value of a man’s love by that which he is willing to give up for it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Love should give wings to the feet of service, and strength to the arms of labour.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh, the stoop of the Redeemer’s amazing love! Let us, henceforth, contend how low we can go side by side with Him, but remember when we have gone to the lowest He descends lower still, so that we can truly feel that the very lowest place is too high for us, because He has gone lower still.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I would not give a penny for your love to the truth if it is not accompanied with a hearty hatred of error.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“For the least love to God, and the simplest act  of obedience to him, are better than the profoundest knowledge. My  Lord, I leave the infinite to thee, and pray thee to put far from me  such a love for the tree of knowledge as might keep me from the tree of  life.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Slavish fear brings not back the backslider to God, but the sweet wooings of love allure him to Jesus’ bosom.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“You must be conquerors through him who hath loved you, if conquerors at all. Our laurels must grow among his olives in Gethsemane.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I bear my witness that the worst days I have ever had have turned out to be my best days. And when God has seemed most cruel to me he has then been most kind. If there is anything in this world for which I would bless him more than for anything else it is for pain and affliction. I am sure that in these things the richest tenderest love has been manifested to me. Our Father’s wagons rumble most heavily when they are bringing us the richest freight of the bullion of his grace. Love letters from heaven are often sent in black-edged envelopes. The cloud that is black with horror is big with mercy. Fear not the storm. It brings healing in its wings and when Jesus is with you in the vessel the tempest only hastens the ship to its desired haven.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Jesus does not cherish an offense, loving us as well after the offense as before it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“No dependence can be placed upon our natural qualities, or our spiritual attainments; but God abideth faithful. He is faithful in His love; He knows no variableness, neither shadow of turning. He is faithful to His purpose; He doth not begin a work and then leave it undone. He is faithful to His relationships; as a Father He will not renounce His children, as a friend He will not deny His people, as a Creator He will not forsake the work of His own hands.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Shame on our cold hearts! We are but poor lovers of our sweet Lord Jesus, not fit to be his servants, much less to be his brides, and yet he hath exalted us to be bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh, married to him by a glorious marriage covenant. Herein is love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“God loves the church with a love too deep for human imagination: He loves her with all His infinite heart. Therefore let her sons be of good courage; she cannot be far from prosperity.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Wean our heart from every creature Thee to love and Thee alone.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“God’s Fatherly prerogative, ” is a kingly attribute so sweetly veiled in love, that the King’s crown is forgotten in the King’s face, and His sceptre becomes, not a rod of iron, but a silver sceptre of mercy—the sceptre indeed seems to be forgotten in the tender hand of Him who wields it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Nothing but the infinite can ever satisfy me; I am such a great sinner that I must have infinite merit to wash my sin away;” but we have had our sin removed, and found that there was merit to spare; we have had our hunger relieved at the feast of sacred love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“To have sweet sleep we must have sweet lives, sweet tempers, sweet meditations, and sweet love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“O, the breadth of the love of Christ! Shall such a love as this have half our hearts? Shall it have a cold love in return? Shall Jesus’ marvellous lovingkindness and tender care meet with but faint response and tardy acknowledgment? O my soul, tune thy harp to a glad song of thanksgiving! Go to thy rest rejoicing, for thou art no desolate wanderer, but a beloved child, watched over, cared for, supplied, and defended by thy Lord.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Let me be on my guard when the world puts on a loving face, for it will, if possible, betray me as it did my Master, with a kiss.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“To trust him is the sure way to every blessing, and he is worthy of the most implicit confidence; but unbelief makes them prefer the cold porches of Bethesda to the warm bosom of his love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Love for God is obedience; love for God is holiness. To love God and to love man is to be conformed to the image of Christ, and this is salvation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“But, Lord, we have yet another burden — it is that we ourselves do not love Thee as we should.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Men will allow God to be everywhere but on his throne. They will allow him to be in his workshop to fashion worlds and make stars. They will allow Him to be in His almonry to dispense His alms and bestow his bounties. they will allow Him to sustain the earth and bear up the pillars thereof, or light the lamps of heaven, or rule the waves of the ever-moving ocean; but when God ascends Hes throne, His creatures then gnash their teeth. And we proclaim an enthroned God, and His right to do as He wills with His own, to dispose of His creatures as He thinks well, without consulting them in the matter; then it is that we are hissed and execrated, and then it is that men turn a deaf ear to us, for God on His throne is not the God they love. But it is God upon the throne that we love to preach. It is God upon His throne whom we trust.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Christ loved the sons of men before there were sons of men, and me before there was me. If he was going to get tired of me, he would have done so before now.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Then no attribute of God can cease to be engaged for us. Is he mighty? He will show himself strong on the behalf of them that trust him. Is he love? Then with lovingkindness will he have mercy upon us. Whatever attributes may compose the character of Deity, every one of them to its fullest extent shall be engaged on our side.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“But, Lord, we have yet another burden — it is that we ourselves do not love Thee as we should.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The more unworthy you feel yourself to be, the more evidence have you that nothing but unspeakable love could have led the Lord Jesus to save such a soul as yours. The more demerit you feel, the clearer is the display of the abounding love of God in having chosen you, and called you, and made you an heir of bliss.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I feel myself to be a lump of unworthiness, a mass of corruption, and a heap of sin, apart from His almighty love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“May the Lord bring us in contemplation to Calvary, then our position will no longer be that of the pompous man of pride, but we shall take the humble place of one who loves much because much has been forgiven him. Pride cannot live beneath the cross. Let us sit there and learn our lesson, and then rise and carry it into practice.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Though you wear your fingers to the bone with service, weep your eyes out with repentance, make your knees hard with kneeling, and dry your throat with shouting, if your heart does not beat with love, your religion falls to the ground like a withered leaf in autumn.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it. If we empty our hearts of self, God will fill them with his love.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Our gifts are very pleasant to Him. He loves to see us lay our time, our talents, our substance on the altar not for the value of what we give, but for the sake of the motive from which the gift springs.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Is not the gospel its own sign and wonder? Is not this a miracle of miracles, that ‘God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish’? Surely that precious word, ‘Whosoever will, let him come and take the water of life freely’ and that solemn promise, ‘Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out,’ are better than signs and wonders! A truthful Saviour ought to be believed. He is truth itself. Why will you ask proof of the veracity of One who cannot lie?”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“There is no repentance where a man can talk lightly of sin, much less where he can speak tenderly and lovingly of it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Zeal–what is it? How shall I describe it? Possess it, and you will know what it is. Be consumed with love for Christ, and let the flame burn continuously, not flaming up at public meetings and dying out in the routine work of every day.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The intensity of the love of the upright is not so much to be judged by what it appears as by what the upright long for. It is our daily lament that we cannot love enough.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh, blessed trust! To trust Him . . . whose power will never be exhausted, whose love will never wane, whose kindness will never change, whose faithfulness will never fail, whose wisdom will never be confounded, and whose perfect goodness can never know a diminution!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Come in, O strong and deep love of Jesus, like the sea at the flood in spring tides, cover all my powers, drown all my sins, wash out all my cares, lift up my earth bound soul, and float it right up to my Lord’s feet, and there let me lie, a poor broken shell, washed up by his love, having no virtue or value; and only venturing to whisper to him that if he will put his ear to me, he will hear within my heart faint echoes of the vast waves of his own love which have brought me where it is my delight to lie, even at his feet for ever.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“That same spirit which makes us love the praise of men makes us dread the threats of men. You cannot be pleased with the adulation of mankind without becoming fearful of tour censure.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

John Wesley


“God is the first object of our love: Its next office is, to bear the defects of others. And we should begin the practice of this amidst our own household.”

John Wesley


“One of the greatest evidences of God’s love to those that love him is, to send them afflictions, with grace to bear them.”

John Wesley


“The readiest way which God takes to draw a man to himself is, to afflict him in that he loves most, and with good reason; and to cause this affliction to arise from some good action done with a single eye; because nothing can more clearly show him the emptiness of what is most lovely and desirable in the world.”

John Wesley


“We scarce conceive how easy it is to rob God of his due, in our friendship with the most virtuous persons, until they are torn from us by death. But if this loss produces lasting sorrow, that is a clear proof that we had before two treasures, between which we divided our heart.”

John Wesley


“It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching! Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit. But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these underfoot in order to save one more soul?”

John Wesley


“Love fasts when it can, and as much as it can. It leads to all the ordinances of God, and employs itself in all the outward works whereof it is capable. It flies, as it were, like Elijah over the plain, to find God upon his holy mountain.”

John Wesley


“Humility alone unites patience with love; without which it is impossible to draw profit from suffering; or indeed, to avoid complaint, especially when we think we have given no occasion for what men make us suffer.”

John Wesley

John Wesley


“Whether we think of, or speak to, God, whether we act or suffer for him, all is prayer, when we have no other object than his love, and the desire of pleasing him.”

John Wesley


“Give me 100 men who hate nothing but sin and love God with all their hearts and I will shake the world for Christ!”

John Wesley


“Go not to those who want you, but to those who want you most.”

John Wesley


“Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can.”

John Wesley


“Let your words be the genuine picture of your heart.”

John Wesley


“God only requires of his adult children, that their hearts be truly purified, and that they offer him continually the wishes and vows that naturally spring from perfect love. For these desires, being the genuine fruits of love, are the most perfect prayers that can spring from it. It is scarce conceivable how strait the way is wherein God leads them that follow him; and how dependent on him we must be, unless we are wanting in our faithfulness to him.”

John Wesley

Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Found – Home Is Not A Place, Home Is Not A Soul, Home Is A Spirit

Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Found – Home Is Not A Place, Home Is Not A Soul, Home Is A Spirit Blog Post Banner Image

Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Found – Home Is Not A Place, Home Is Not A Soul, Home Is A Spirit.

For a long time we have been told and taught that, “Home is where the heart is found is.” Another variation to this idea was the notion that home was a place or a location.  Some place to put our heads when exhausted and tired. Some spot to put our legs at the end of a long day. A refugee away from the cares of life. An area to find peace and to relax.

For a long time we have been told and taught that, “Home is where the heart is found is.” Another variation to this idea was the notion that home was a place or a location.  Some place to put our heads when exhausted and tired. Some spot to put our legs at the end of a long day. A refugee away from the cares of life. An area to find peace and to relax.

Yet other people told us home was a soul. And the idea and philosophical school of thought on soulmates especially philosophized by Plato and his friend Aristophanes was popularized by literature. We started thinking that home was a  soulmate. We therefore started searching for soul mates. In the hope that when we finally found our soulmate, we could finally find home and thus belonging and understanding.

But home is not a heart, it is not a mind, it is not a soul or a body.

Home Is A Spirit.

And the spirit is so strong that you don’t have to be in the same location with another person to feel the electromagnetic waves and forces of it’s might and work in action.

The spirit is able to find another individual anywhere in this world. You cannot hide from the spirit.

I mean are there no couples who share the same house, sleep in the same bed, but are strangers? Couples who speak to themselves daily but they can not understand themselves or are unable to communicate?

Of course this kind of disequilibrium often leads to unhappy homes full of chaos and confusion because there is often misunderstanding and a lack of communication.

And in some instances these differences lead to cheating and unfaithfulness even when the said couple share three meals a day and sleep together at night.

Because while their bodies maybe in the same place, their spirits are communing with another spirit.

However in the same vein, we have couples, physically away from each other for various reasons but with the most beautiful kind of connections because their spirits commune with each other.

Believers in Jesus Christ of Nazareth have the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is home for believers in Jesus. He is everything we need. When you have the Holy spirit, there is nothing you can lack. The Holy Spirit brings peace, self-control, joy, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, forbearance, meekness and love.

The Holy Spirit is the one who keep’s believer couples glued together for life. The Holy Spirit is the one who helps couples manage to overcome the various storms of life together as part of a team. Without the Holy Spirit holding families and relationships together, they invariably crumble.

What the Apostle Paul greatly summarizes in Galatians as the Fruit of the Spirit:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, we must also follow the Spirit. 26 We must not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Galatians 5:22-26

On the other side of the divide, the same way we have the Holy Spirit, we also have evil spirits.

Evil spirits keep occult couples and unions together. It sounds unbelievable but it is what it is.

There are two Kingdoms in the spiritual. The Kingdom of light and the the Kingdom of darkness.

There are occult couples who stay together for life. They too are able to communicate in the spirit. How? Through evil spirits who are a counterfeit to the Holy Spirit.

I understand this leaves a third category of individuals. These are the people who are blind or asleep.

What side do they belong?

Well, that is why there is a raging war and battle in the spiritual.

It is to determine where these individuals will end up.

In the Kingdom of light or in the Kingdom of darkness.

Is Lying To Those We Cherish Part Of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age

Is Lying To Those We Cherish Part Of Love - Exploring Love In The New Age Blog Post Banner Image

Is Lying To Those We Cherish Part Of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age.

Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius say a song titled, “Lying In Love With You.” One of the lines in the song goes like, “Won’t hurt to tell a white lie or two . When I’m lying in love with you.”

“The idea that lying occurs in all intimate relationships may be hard to accept. What may be even harder to acknowledge is that some of those lies may actually be necessary for love to thrive.” writes Dr. Randi Gunther a clinical psychologist and marriage counselor in an article where she seems to be justifying and encouraging lying in relationships and marriage.

Love has become a very misunderstood concept in today’s world and the new age.

In New age teachings of these times, the different kinds of guides will keep giving people pieces of advice like, “If you love someone and telling them the truth hurts them then you are better off lying.”

These kinds of counsel  are wrong on all levels because they condone and justify deception.

Once we start justifying sin and making excuses for it, it doesn’t take long before it becomes a habit, a culture and the norm.

Furthermore, many feel lust and assume it’s love. Many are infatuated and call it love.

The people of Corinth in Paul’s time were confusing love with other phenomenon and this chaos is what compelled Paul to write them 1 Corinthians 13 to explain what love is.

If it lacks truth, then it’s not love.

If it’s filled with deceit then it’s not love.

If you find yourself constantly telling lies, then you don’t have love.

Love is Truth. If it has no truth, then it is another phenomenon.

God Is Love
God Is Truth

The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John 4:8
And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and the one who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.

1 John 4:16
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 14:6

Let us stop justifying sin and calling it love! Let us not allow the enemy to defile and pollute godly unions, relationships and marriages.

I pray we can all walk in the Power of Love which is Truth.

Your Love Should Be Zealous And Passionate – Exploring Love In The New Age

Your Love Should Be Zealous And Passionate - Exploring Love In The New Age Blog Post Banner Image

Your Love Should Be Zealous And Passionate – Exploring Love In The New Age.

In the new age that we live in, love has grown cold and numb. Often times, most people just go through the motions of loving others. People who love passionately are often shunned and called denigrating names like radicals, fanatics, weirdos etc.

But love should be passionate, hot and zealous for it to be effective and long lasting.

In fact God’s love is passionate and zealous. And the bible verse below which is found in the book of Isaiah, show’s us what things hot, zealous and passionate love can accomplish.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called
Wonderful,
Counsellor,
The mighty God,
The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice
from henceforth even for ever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

Power, earth transformative changes can occur when we do things passionately and zealously.

There is a lot we can learn from God on how to love passionately and with zeal.

God’s zeal and passion for mankind led him to leave his heavenly throne and become a man.

What honor he bestowed onto us.

What a gift he gave us.

What a privilege to be so loved by him.

We too can take from the example of Jesus. We can choose to love God and other people passionately and with zeal. Let’s not allow the world or our circumstances to make our love grow cold.

Let’s not become lukewarm in a world that tries so desperately to extinguish the fire with in.

“I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.

Revelation 3:15

God's Love Is A Holistic Covering Over Your Heart, Body, Soul, Spirit And Mind Blog Post Banner Image

God’s Love Is A Holistic Covering Over Your Heart, Body, Soul, Spirit And Mind.

Below are awesome bible scriptures to remind you that God’s love is a great covering over our whole being.

God doesn’t love just one part of you. He loves everything about you. You are precious and deeply cherished.

So, anytime you are going through a difficult patch in life or you are feeling unloved, just remember God loves all of you, all the time and for ever.

God’s love over your Heart:

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

John 14:27

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33

God’s love over your Body:

And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said,

Take, eat; this is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying,

Drink ye all of it; 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Matthew 26:26-28

God’s love over your Soul:

Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from Him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.

Psalms 62:5-6

God’s love over your Spirit:

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

John 6:63

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Redefining and Classifying Love – Types of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age

Redefining and Classifying Love - Types of Love - Exploring Love In The New Age Blog Post Banner Image

Redefining and Classifying Love – Types of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age.

Over the years, I have heard love classified a variety of ways.

The most common psychology classification is the one in which love is grouped into seven categories.

I didn’t really believe any of those classifications as they didn’t make sense to me but for a few weeks now, a particular Bible passage has been niggling at the back of my mind.

 

“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.”

Matthew 24:12

And it’s on the basis of that passage that I have come up with my own rendition on the classification and types of love.

  1. Hot Love
  2. Cold Love

  3. Lukewarm Love

Let’s consider these three types of love further:

Love type number 3:

Lukewarm Love:

I like to think of this as the worst kind of love. People with lukewarm love are the one’s who are neither here or there. They have no idea what they want. They are indecisive and wishy washy. When I consider it, I think it consists of lying and false lures.

Revelations has this to say further on Lukewarm Love.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Revelation 3:15-16

Love type number 2:

 

Cold Love:

This is love with no passion, ardor or fire. It consists of people who are insensitive, unfeeling and have buried their emotions.

In Matthew 24:12, Jesus is not saying people will not be able to love. They will love, except that their love will be cold.

Love type number 1:

Hot Love:

This is the best kind of love. Jesus wants us burning hot with desire and passion for him, the gospel and other people. Hot love is heavenly, holy, and from the heart. It pushes us beyond our bounds to give our all. It changes people and situations.

Hot Love Liberates, Cold Love Numbs and Lukewarm Love Destroys.

I pray we can all have hot love and burn with passion for Jesus. Let us not allow our love to die.

It Is Okay To Be Romantic – Romance Was Created By God And Not By The Devil

It Is Okay To Be Romantic - Romance Was Created By God And Not By The Devil Blog Post Banner Image

It Is Okay To Be Romantic – Romance Was Created By God And Not By The Devil.

Jesus is the greatest romantic of all time. I therefore don’t understand believers who want to separate romance from love. There is nothing evil, wicked, weak and dark about romance.

It’s time we stopped giving the devil platitudes he has never earned.

Which devil has ever created true and genuine romance?
Of course the devil is always in the business of duplicates to dilute the original but it doesn’t take away from the true source.

People let’s be realistic and lets stop cheating God by giving away all his glory.

God created romance. Not the devil.
Forget Saint valentine and what the world, marketer’s and secularists preach and peddle.
Jesus’s romantic skills begin way back in Genesis, even before Man comes on the scene.

Look at the earth. The romance of flower petals and their fragrance. The romantic sounds streams and springs make as they flow by. The romantic whistling of birds chirping in the morning. The feel of a new born baby as you carry them. Our world is filled with romantic gestures created by God. If only we could open our eyes to appreciate his handiwork.

How do people think God continually expresses his love for us?
The evidence of his romantic displays are everywhere but clearly some people lack the ability to see and sense these displays. It is the only way we can explain the muteness, blindness and total lack of feeling to the splendor and magnificence of God’s romantic displays.

I pray that the Lord will open the eyes of the blind so that they can marvel and gaze at his romantic spendor.

Love goes hand in hand with romance. However, I personally believe that love comes before romance but they certainly flow together once they mesh. Not separately.

Now, countless times I have been accused of being sappy and emotional and an incurable romantic.

I used to shun the title, because I wanted to join the club of the unfeeling, insensitive and hard people.

However, one day, the Lord Jesus gently reminded me why he created me as a human being with all the dimensions possessed by humans including an emotional dimensional and not a Nephilim hybrid lacking some human components.

Anyhow, now I wear my incurable romantic label like a badge. I’m glad I can sense and feel deeply. The challenge is not my depth. The challenge is people’s superficiality.

Let’s be serious. A man who can beautifully, descriptively, delicately, creatively and poetically describe how he wants something as unromantic as lamp stands to be designed for him to be labelled unromantic is beyond me. Just beyond me!

Reading the scripture below, we can all certainly pick a leaf from the master romantic on how to be romantic.

33 Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms are to be on one branch, three on the next branch, and the same for all six branches extending from the lampstand.
34 And on the lampstand there are to be four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms.
35 One bud shall be under the first pair of branches extending from the lampstand, a second bud under the second pair, and a third bud under the third pair—six branches in all.
36 The buds and branches shall all be of one piece with the lampstand, hammered out of pure gold.

Exodus 25:33-36

Love Disciplines And Rebukes – Exploring Love In The New Age

Love Disciplines And Rebukes – Exploring Love In The New Age.

I often hear people saying that we shouldn’t talk about hell because it will make people fearful and lead them away from God.

Apparently we should only talk about God’s unfailing and abundant love but we should sweep his wrath under the carpet.

Yes, I also once thought that way. But not anymore.

The same God who was pleased seeing his own innocent son suffer on the cross because he had taken the whole sin of the world and offered himself as a sacrifice?

“Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”

Isaiah 53:9-10

That same God who couldn’t spare his only begotten son will spare you with your conscious and deliberate refusal of his gift of love and salvation?

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Matthew 27:46

People should really stop fooling themselves.

We mortals have really taken God for granted but the day he decides enough is enough, I can’t fathom what will happen to this earth.

And he made his grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death;
because he had done no violence,
neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Matthew 27:46

God’s love rebukes and disciplines. This discipline is for our own good. He corrects us because he wants us to be better. It’s a show of his love.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent. 20 Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me.”

Revelation 3:19-20

Discipline and rebuke is not hateful like New age and secular media would like us to believe. Unfortunately, If we remain indisciplined and refuse to change, God will send us to hell.

I urge you brethren, if you have any sin in your life, please confess it to God, ask him to forgive you and to cleanse you with his precious blood. Repent and ask Jesus for his Holy Spirit to guide you and lead you.

Let us no take God’s love, his mercy, his compassion and his kindness for granted.

Do Unlike Poles Attract And Stay That Way In Relationships And Marriage – Exploring Love In The New Age

Do Unlike Poles Attract And Stay That Way In Relationships And Marriage - Exploring Love In The New Age Blog Post Banner Image

Do Unlike Poles Attract And Stay That Way In Relationships And Marriage – Exploring Love In The New Age.

In dating, relationships and marriage, new age says, unlike poles attract and stay that way.
Sound’s nice at first but on deeper introspection it misses a number of principles.

Before marriage, unlike poles attract, kind of like Physics principles. Magnetism and magnetic pole attraction.

Ying-Yang as the Chinese say.
Humans tend to look for people who can give them what they are lacking.
Why else would someone go searching for what they already have most will argue.
It’s also the complimentary principle.
I give you what you lack and you give me what I lack.

If say person A has lot’s of patience, he will seek person B without patience so he can share. If person B lacks joy, they will go looking for a person full of joy to fill them etc.

That is before marriage.
Lock and Key!

After marriage though, unlike poles start to repel.
See, for any long term venture, you need common ground or glue to keep things going!
Because if you lack the glue to go in the same direction, you both start drifting apart.
I guess this is where the famous Bible scripture of two becoming one comes in.

This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.

Genesis 2:24

This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh. Genesis 2_24 Bible Verse Instagram Post

Could this phenomenon of people looking for those who are opposite to them also explain the increasing the levels of divorce, separation, mariticide and uxoricide?

If you don’t have enough similarities to be one, then you are headed for chaos especially if you have totally different outlooks on life.
I mean after the differences are filled, there will be nothing left anymore.
Indeed this is where the Biblical question comes in:

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?

16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”

17 Therefore,
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”

18 And,
“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18
