Day 19 - Love is impossible

Today's Verse:
Let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. –I John 4:7
Today's Message:

     This message is a difficult one. Not only to grasp, but to try and live. Honestly, I'm not sure I'm there. Not from the standpoint of my personal relationship with my wife, but my personal relationship with others. (because.. In my mind… that REALLY is what this is about)

     I have customers that don't pay me for my services. It happens all the time. And I know I'm not the only one that this happens to.

     So how do you 'love' them unconditionally? And I know that I'm not perfect myself, but today's society makes it so difficult.

Back on subject though… to love them through Christ, rather than through ourselves.
     That may be the only way to get it through to them what the work means to you.
Today's Questions:

  • What does agape love really mean?
Today's Dare:

  • Look back over the dares from the previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you?
  • Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love?
  • Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to settle your eternal destination.
  • What do you believe God is saying to you?
    • That I'm not paying attention to many things that can help me. I am good enough. I am smart enough. He doesn't want me to work the kind of hours that I work for ME… but that if I would work those hours for HIM… everything would work out. That's going to be a difficult thing to do from the standpoint of perspective, but I have to work on this.
  • Is there a stirring in your heart?
    • Yes… but there's always a stirring in my heart. People in general are a tremendous disappointment to me. I put too much of my faith in them, instead of where it should be.
  • What decision have you made in response to that?
    • I'm going to work on my perspectives of who I work for and why. They might argue with me, but God will not allow them to argue with him.
This is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26) - -
