TOPIC: The Power of Love
SCRIPTURE: Even if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, I would still be worth nothing at all without love. (1 Corinthians 13:2b-TLB).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your faith cannot enhance your worth in life without love.
It has been confirmed that Love is so powerful that it can attract the Presence of God to a person. God is love (1 John 4:8). Love is the nature of God. Therefore, to love is to experience God.
Today, we shall be looking at two powers of love.
1. Faith adds no value without love
The Living Bible says,
Even if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, I would still be worth nothing at all without love. (1 Corinthians 13:2bTLB)
A man’s faith will add no value to his life without love. This means, your faith cannot enhance your worth in life without love. It doesn’t matter what level of faith you operate in, if love is absent, your worth will be lacking. It will be as if you are lying against God that you believe in Him.
2. Giving is unprofitable without love
1 Corinthians 13:3 says,
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Giving is unprofitable without love. It is possible to give without loving people, maybe, to create an impression. But it is not possible to love without giving. When you love, you give!
Giving without loving cannot guarantee desired results. A person may be a tither, a sower, or a giver but if he is bitter against people, his giving profits nothing.
Beloved, make up your mind to refuse to walk in hatred. Live the Love life.
Remember This: Your faith cannot enhance your worth in life without love.
Make up your mind to love genuinely and unconditionally.
Let love undergird all spiritual activities.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You baptize me afresh with the Spirit of Love. Help me to show Your love life to my generation, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: God’s love for the world is what made Him send His Son to die for us in order to effect forgiveness. Culled from “AM I BITTER?” by Dr (Mrs.) Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Isaiah 31-33
REFLECTION: With God, actions are not as important as intentions. Until love under-girds spiritual actions, they may become efforts in futility.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord cause your worth to be fully made manifest in this season in Jesus’ Name.
