Jesus emphatically told His church to walk in love with all men. I have endeavored to obey His command all my Christian life. However, I have run into some issues. I have found quite a number of folks who are unlovable. There are a lot of people that you cannot love enough to meet their standard. I am just stating a fact. Love never fails. So, if someone will not accept the God kind of love it will not fail in the one offering it. Let me illustrate this to you, the world hates the God kind of love!
1 Corinthians 13:6 Love will not rejoice in iniquity (celebrate diversity) but celebrate truth.
The world hates the God kind of love because it will not agree with their manner of life. Who does God think He is telling people they are committing sin? We are not hurting anyone. We just love one another in a different manner but it’s the same love!
Jude 1:7 Sodom and Gomorrah gave themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh are an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
So, what does love do? The Sodomites in these cities were sent to hell, we are told this as an examples of this sin. Speak the truth in love, warn these folks of what awaits them. Sodom and Gomorrah were given as an example, God hasn’t changed His mind. When folks speak the truth in love and the sinner opposes it, they will accuse you of judging them making you the hypocrite. These folks are at the time unlovable, they are not ready to deal with the thing that separates them from God.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
Jesus is love and the world hated Him, so don’t be upset if they hate you just like Him. What did Jesus do when He was rejected? He continued to go about teaching the truth because love never fails because love never gives up. Love never fails to be a life changing force in the lives of those who will welcome it. Many will not accept the love of God, but that will not lessen it’s power to transform the lives of those who will receive it. God will love a man while he is in the womb and He will love him up to the very minute he enters hell because love never fails. No man can ever claim that he was never loved, it’s just that sin had a greater priority.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.
Many in the world call lust love and love a weakness of character. Anyone can demonstrate hatred but it requires the supernatural grace of God to walk in love. In order to fulfill the lust of the flesh one must put love aside. Is it love to have another man’s wife? Love empowers us to resist lust, it will not accept things it is not entitled to. Love will do everything in its power to keep a sinner out of hell, even if it means suffering shame for telling the truth. Love can never be quenched, not even by the unlovable.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
