NCFI Cares: God is Love

  1 John 4:8 tells us that God is love. We intellectually know
this truth. We memorize verses and sing praises of God’s love. We pray for his
love to penetrate our soul and reach through our heart and hands to touch
others. At times, as we experience earthly trials our prayers for love come
from desperation for healing. One way we can bring the living word beyond our
mind is to personalize God’s word. Here are my changes to 1 Corinthians 13:4-8:

            Heavenly Father is patient and kind. He is
not envious. Almighty does not brag, nor is He puffed up. Adonai is not rude, nor
self-serving, Elohim is not easily angered nor does He keep records of wrong
doings. Most High is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth. LORD bears
all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. YAHWEH
never ends.

            Rest in the promise of God’s
word which reveals the reality of how comprehensive God’s love is. My prayer
personal prayer for each of you is … “may ________ (insert your name)
comprehend with all the saints, what is breadth and length and height and depth
is the love of Christ, so that ______ (insert your name) may be filled up with
the fullness of God!” (Eph 3:18-19)

Grace & Peace
