Love never fails despite the element of time.

The Reputation of Love

The power of love is very important in the life of a Believer. Some may think of other attributes of this lifestyle that are just as or equally important. But love has a reputation that has been proven through time.

Reputation is a word that describes the position that is occupied in respect to that which is achieved. It is not to be confused with character. Character is features, traits, or qualities that form the nature of a person or thing.

The enemy does not want Believers and especially unbelievers to understand the power of love. Why?Love never fails, never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end.(1 Cor. 13:8. AMP). It is the middle word, never, that describes the absolute extent.

The origin of love is from God. “For God is love.” (1 John 4:8). God has provided His love for thousands of years. It has moved through time without being hindered or stopped. God is the architect who drew His plans with love woven into each aspect of His blueprint.

After generations of love in the spiritual distant, God’s plan of love outwitted the enemy through the birth of His son, Jesus. He dispatched an angel, Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God with a message for a chosen vessel named Mary. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.  And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:30-35 KJV).

         At the very moment Mary spoke the words, “Be it unto me according to thy word,” she was filled with the love of God in her womb and in her heart. (Luke 1:38). Mary was the first person on earth to be filled with the love of God to carry the love of God in a physical form, Jesus, to be birthed on the earth.

After the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden, the Old Testament describes the wickedness of the heart of man. Even after the flood, the spirit of wickedness invaded the family of Noah, who were the chosen survivors. The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it, perceive, understand, be acquainted with his own heart and mind?” (Jeremiah 17:9 AMP). But God had a plan to give man a new heart. “A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” (Ezekiel 36:26).

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, let us rejoice that love stepped down through time and came for us. It is that love that causes us not to make the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus, of no effect in our lives. Even though many of us have failed to understand this love, but it passes our understanding because of the power and ability of the effect that will occur. During this season, let us take the opportunity that is waiting for us to be lifted into His presence and into His arms to be filled once again with the love that never fails.

 

“My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn't know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can't know him if you don't love. This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him. This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they've done to our relationship with God.” (1 John 7-10 MSG).
