I was watching an episode of Joyce Meyer and she brought up a very interesting, but simple topic. Jesus was not “phased” by the day’s events, because He walked in love…as simple as that. Last night in my womens’ group, we were sharing scriptures and the topic of love came up. I shared with them a simple trick to see if they were walking in love. This comes from a previous post of mine. I encourage you to take the “simple test” to see if you too are walking in love.
Ephesians 4:2 says, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what is doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always me first, doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of the truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end!
If you’re wondering if you are walking in love, insert your name for “love” in the scripture above (a little trick I learned from author Francis Chan). You will quickly see the path you are following.
Love in Christ,
