                                                                KEEP IT HOT!

Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins (forgives and disregards the offenses of others).


One of the most amazing truths I have ever learned, one that still thrills my soul, is that love is actually spiritual warfare. 


If we fight our battles with love, then instead of appearing to be oppressed and discouraged all the time, we can actually look happy.  We can be on the attack instead of under the attack.


Today's Scripture teaches us to have intense and unfailing love for one another.  The New King James Version uses the word fervent to describe love; in Greek, fervent means "to be hot, to boil." Our love walk needs to be hot, on fire, boiling over, not cold and barely noticeable.  Have you ever micro waved something for too long and not been able to remove it from the oven because it was too hot to handle?  That's the way I want to be.  If we are hot enough with love, Satan won't be able to handle us.  We might say we will be "too hot to handle."


I believe if we as the church of Jesus Christ, His body here on earth, will wage war against selfishness and walk in love, people will begin to take notice.  We will not impress the world by being just like them.  But how many unsaved friends and relatives might come to know Jesus if we genuinely loved them instead of ignoring, judging , or rejecting them?  I believe it's time to find out, don't you?


LOVE OTHERS TODAY: Start your own "love revolution" by declaring war on selfishness.
