“The 6th Word to Transform 2021”

Image result for love

This week’s word is very popular this time of the year. Many want to talk about LOVE as we approach February 14th. Often the discussions are on getting love from a significant other or wishing you had a significant other to give you some love. However, the best love that we could ever experience is the love of God. As I seek the Lord for a word to totally transform your 2021, this week the Lord gave me “LOVE.” Have you ever experienced true LOVE?

God is love and when we experience His love, our lives are forever transformed. I am talking about the ultimate act of love where God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus, and that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). That’s the ultimate gift of love. Can’t top that! I just want to testify about how thankful I am for God’s love. I have never experienced the love of my earthly father however, God has been a father, and I have learned how to love because of His love for me.

I know there are a lot of singles who feel like they are not loved and need the love of a man in order to experience love, but I am a witness that God’s LOVE is best. Yes, it is wonderful to have a husband, but no man can love you the way that God does. Man will fail, disappoint and let you down, but not God. His love is perfect, everlasting and unfailing.

Once we experience the love of God, we are better able to love others. Many relationships have failed because people just don’t know how to love. So if you choose to connect with someone, let it be a mate who has accepted Christ as his/her personal Savior and one who loves God. When one has demonstrated that they really love God, then they can really love you! Notice I used the word demonstrated because everybody who says they love God should show some godly signs! One key sign is obedience (Are they being obedient to God?). When we truly love God, we will obey Him. As we love God, He teaches us how to truly love others. I don’t know where I would be in my marriage if it wasn’t for God teaching me how to love (See I Corinthians 13 for the definition of God’s love). Remember since God is love, He is the best LOVE Teacher. Love God, and allow Him to love you, this will transform your 2021.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
