We belong to a kingdom where everyone has equal opportunity Acts 10:34-35; Gal. 3:28; Col. 3:11. In God’s kingdom, no one is at a disadvantage, how long one has been around is not the yardstick, what matters us how aligned and compliant one is to the ways of God that govern the kingdom life Deu. 28:1-2.
Love for God, the Fundamental Law of God’s kingdom.
The scriptures identify love for God as the first and great law in God’s kingdom Mat. 22:36-40. Love for God is also the law that makes every covenant of scriptures to work Mat. 22:36-40. Love for God is the platform on which everything that works in the kingdom operate 1Cor. 13:1-3,8; Rms. 8:28. In essence, how glorious one experience will be in God’s kingdom is a function of the depth of one’s love for God.
The Wonders of a Genuine Love for God.
Revelation is also referred to as light, and it is the spiritual understanding of scripture to the extent of correct application for result Acts. 8:30-31,32-39. Light and revelation enables the believer to see in this dark world, thereby lay hold on one’s possessions in Christ Gen. 13:14-15; Jer. 1:11-12. Light and revelation is the believer’s access to new levels and change of story 2Cor. 3:18. But the love of God is the believer’s access into the realms of revelation and light in God Jn. 15:15.
We live in a world enveloped in wickedness and cruelty 1Jn. 5:19; Psa. 74:20. It will take walking in dominion for the believer not to be a victim and casualty in life. Redemption entitles the believer for dominion, but love for God is what empowers the believer to walk in dominion practically 1Jn. 4:16-18; Eph. 3:17-19; Rms. 8:31; Psa. 114:1-8.
Love is a virtue that drives individual in the direction of what his object of love delight 2Cor. 5:14. What God loves most is the salvation of souls; when love for God is genuine in a believer, he is driven towards the salvation of souls Jn. 3:16; 1Tim. 2:4; 2Pet. 3:9. Paul was a die-hard lover of God, and he was a die-hard soul winner Rms. 8:35-39; 1Cor. 9:16; Php. 1:15-21. A soul winner is guaranteed to emerge a global star Dan. 12:3; Pro. 11:30; 3:35.
Love for God makes the believer to become one with God 1Jn. 4:16-18. Oneness with the only wise God gives the believer unlimited access to the wisdom of God 1Tim. 1:17; Pro. 13:20. David, the lover of God was said to be as wise as the angels of God to know all things 1Sam. 13:14; 2Sam. 14:20. Solomon exhibited a strange dimension of love for God, and emerged the wisest man of his days 1Kgs. 3:3-12; 4:29-30.
The scriptures shows us that love for God makes a believer to be immune to failure in life 1Cor. 13:8; Rms. 8:28; Isa. 54:1-4. Love for God does not only make things to work, it launches the believer into the pacesetting realms, where the believer commands strange dimension of result 1Cor. 2:9.
In conclusion, one cannot love God and struggle or live an ordinary life Rms. 8:28; 1Cor. 2:9. One cannot love God and not know Jn. 21:15-17; 1Chr. 29:3-12. One cannot love God and be a normal or casual Christian Rms. 8:35-39. But love for God is a choice, until one makes the choice consciously and in clear terms, he will only be assuming his love for God.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for
