The Spirit of Love must work the works, and speak the tones, of Love. It cannot exist and give no sign, or a false sign. It cannot be a spirit of Love, and mantle into irritable and selfish impatience. It cannot be a spirit of Love, and at the same time make self the prominent object. It cannot rejoice to lend itself to the happiness of others, and at the same time be seeking its own. It cannot be generous, and envious. It cannot be sympathizing, and unseemly; self-forgetful, and vain- glorious. It cannot delight in the rectitude and purity of other hearts, as the spiritual elements of their peace, and yet unnecessarily suspect them.” J. H. THOM
A person never attains perfection in Christian life if he or she does not have sacrificial love, devoted heart and sincere good work toward his kin, neighbour and even his enemy. Perfection, what a challenging word. It is commanded to us by our Heavenly Father and by our Lord Jesus Christ to be perfect in our lives. Yes, our Father who is in Heaven, who sees all our imperfections, all our weaknesses towards the commitment of sin, commands us to keep His words with all sincerity and live a holy life throughout our lives.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love Covers over a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
Dear friend, perfection starts the moment you accept Jesus Christ as The Lord of your life. The moment you allow Him to be the light, the way and the true meaning of your life. Yes, from that moment on, The Lord Jesus Christ, will be the Guiding Light of your life. With His Holy Spirit The Lord will be your comforter and healer. You will feel His presence in your heart. You will see radical change in your behaviour towards your neighbours and friends. People will notice something different in you. You will become a new person; a person belonging to God. The thoughts which you were harbouring before this event, you yourself, will notice evaporated from your mind. All the bad habits which you had before will leave you; instead you will start to devote time for prayer. You will be anxious of doing good work for The Lord. You will start to love every person no matter who he or she is.
Dear friend, accepting Jesus Christ as The Lord of your life is the first step towards perfection. Confess your sins, all of your sins, ask The Lord to erase all of your sins and make you whole. You will be changed. You will be a new creature, the child of The Lord, and He will guide you towards perfection.
The moment you are saved, the spirit of love will teach you how to live and love everyone.
If we love one another, God dwells in us, and His love is perfected in us. 1 John 4:12
And he that keepeth His commandments dwelleth In Him, and He in him. And hereby we know That He abideth in us, by the Spirit which He Hath given us. 1 John 3:24
Dear friend, Jesus The Lord is the real spirit of love. The moment we accept him in our hearts, we should never let Him go.
The true Spirit of Love is the unconditional love of our Lord. We are all invited to accept Him in our lives.
