Choose To Love

John 18:23 'Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?'

JOHN 18:23
God's kind of love is not self-serving or self-seeking. Agape love will cause a person to lay down his life for another (Jn. 15:13), because he has literally forgotten himself. Many times when heros are asked why they put themselves in jeopardy to save someone else, they reply that they didn't even think about themselves. All they thought of was the danger to the other person. That's God's kind of love.

God's type of love involves emotions many times, but it is not an emotion. It is an act of the will. We can choose to love even when we don't feel like it and we can always conduct ourselves in a godly manner, when we feel God's kind of love. God's kind of love is a choice.

God's kind of love is also the antidote to selfishness and pride. We cannot conquer self by focusing on self. The only way to win over self is to fall in love with God more than with ourself. It is in discovering God's love that we lose self love.

Jesus didn't feel some emotional sensation when He chose to die for us, but that was the greatest demonstration of God's kind of love that the world has ever seen. He made a choice in spite of His emotions. Because He was consumed with God's love, He acted properly, even when His emotions didn't agree.

Jesus is the ultimate example of God's kind of love.

Numbers 6:2-5,8


What is a Nazarite? The very word means separation, and it applies to both men and women. True victory for God’s people must be along the lines of Nazariteship, separation from all the things that the world counts as absolutely essential.

FAITHFULNESS

Daniel 1:1-21

Characteristically, Daniel was of his fidelity to religious convictions, devotion, moral integrity, and the favour of God. These, he preferred to the pleasures and prizes of life. Another trait of Daniel's was judgment, so extraordinary as to make his name proverbial for that quality. His...More

Adam found an excuse:

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jeremiah 17:9

In a discussion on the above text with some young people, the question was asked: how are we to understand the word “deceitful” here? After some consideration they reached this conclusion:...More
