DAY 2 WEDNESDAY: DECEMBER 2020

BE CHALLENGED BY GOD’S LOVE IN LIFE!

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us (Romans 5:5).

Every Christian should be challenged and moved by God’s love in life. The love of God does not disappoint and can never fail because God Himself is love in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed expects him to be challenged and moved by His agape love in life. A Christian should be challenged and moved by God’s love for soul winning because it is His mandate for him in life. A life that wins souls for the Lord is absolutely the life that is being challenged and moved by God’s love in life forever.

As a Christian, you should never conform yourself to the standard of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind in life (Romans 12:2). Therefore, a Christian is expected to be moved and challenged by God’s love by transforming and renewing his mind after His order in life. That is the reason why a Christian should learn to forgive and leave vengeance for God in life. When you are being challenged by God’s love, you love irrespective of circumstances and challenges of life. This is because the love of God had been poured in your heart by the Holy Spirit in life. Hence, a life without the love of God is of course a life without zeal and total commitment to soul winning in life forever.

Jesus Christ revealed to us the love of God in the parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:30-37. The Good Samaritan showed pity and mercy on the victim that was beaten half-dead by the robbers because he was challenged and moved by God’s love in life. The Bible says thus, “So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him” (vs. 34). In fact, Jesus Christ clearly stated that every Christian is expected to do likewise by being challenged and moved with God’s love in life. Therefore, God’s love is absolutely the greatest and the best gift man can ever achieved in life forever.

Daily Tip: Except you are challenged and moved by God’s love, you can never fulfill Jesus Christ’s mandate on earth in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8).

PRAYER: TAKE A WORSHIP SONG AS LED
