and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been
poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to
Love is the essence of our being. For a Christian to remain joyful all
the time, he has to walk in love all the time, you are not being short
changed as a Christian when you are instructed by the word of God
not to respond angrily at a hurtful situation; think not as the world.
God gives you instructions for your own good, he knows that if you
do not respond in all situation with love, you would end up unhappy
and really short changed.
A dog is happier and more fulfilled when it is given the opportunity to
always bark, a Christian would be much more happier and fulfilled if
he expresses love in every situation he finds himself: using love
words, thinking love thoughts, acting in love all the time not
necessarily because the situation was favorable but because, in order
for you to be happy as a Christian even in difficult situation you have
to keep your love banner high.
Respond today in love, show a bit more kindness in your words and
actions and understand that God is love and so are you, 1 John 4:17.
