walking in the truth…walking in love

To walk in the truth one has to walk in love…how does one walk in love?

I mean…love your enemies…how does one do that?

Love those who killed your parents, your children….

Love those who abused you…

Love those who cheated, stole, lied…

Love those who abandoned you…

Heavy stuff…and yet that seems to be the call of the day.

More and more I realize that I think I can do this “Christian” stuff on my own, I can’t.

More and more I realize that the “Christian” life cannot be lived without the power of God infilling us with His love.

More and more I realize that God has given us the power of the Holy Spirit so we can be Christians.

We do not talk a lot about the Holy Spirit – seems we take Him for granted until the tank is dry and we are dry and empty.

Seems to be that each day, when we talk with God, read His Word, ask Him for help to do what He needs us to do for the day – its like going to the gas station and getting a fill-up.

Then when we walk His walk, its like we are giving away His love and at the end of the day we are not so frazzled after all.

So it’s another decision I make the first thing in the morning…God, I want to walk in truth today, because that is your character – you are truth.  So that others see You, help me walk in love, but give me the power of your Holy Spirit, because today, without Him, I cannot love all the people you want me to love on my own.

Thank you Lord, touch base with you again tomorrow morning.

    Unfortunately, many Christians and many leaders of the churches talking about the love and preaching the Word but they don’t know the love of God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
