MFM Devotional for Monday 14th February 2022 | Message:
As a believer, our love for God should not be mere lip service or untrue but genuine, unfeigned and profound. Also, God expects us to prove our love by requiting and showing it to Him and others. As He has amply and convincingly proved His love to us, He wants us to do the same to Him and others. You can do this in the following ways:
First, you should demonstrate unreserved obedience to His word. In John 14:15, Jesus said, “if ye love me, keep my commandment.” Obedience to God in a prompt, unquestioning and complete way is the greatest proof of your love to Him. Obey God, whether it is convenient or not. Abraham proved his love by obeying God on the issue of Isaac. God rewarded him handsomely for it.
Another way to prove your love for Christ is to feed His flock. Jesus said to Peter, “Lovest thou Me? Peter answered, “Thou knowest, Master. Jesus told him, “Feed my flock. How should you feed the flock of Jesus? The Bible says that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
Therefore, teaching and preaching the word of God to others and making them grow spiritually is a great way to demonstrate your love for the Lord. Next to spiritual feeding is the physical one. Jesus fad 5,000 men with five loaves of bread and two fishes. Dearly beloved, you should use your material resources to meet the physical needs of others (food, accommodation, clothing, etc). When you grant them this favour, the Lord said He is the one you have bestowed the favour upon.
Finally, you can prove God’s love to Him and others by doing what God loves. The heartbeat of the Almighty is soul-winning. Seek out the lost, unreached and unloved souls and win them for Christ. Do not stop winning souls for Christ; disciple them for Him also. Turn them to faithful followers and ambassadors of the Kingdom. When you prove your love successfully, God will reward you handsomely.
