Subject: Give Agape Love [Andrew Wommack Devotional 24 September 2020]
Matthew 23:12 ‘And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.’
In Romans 12:10 we’re admonished to want the welfare of others greater than our personal; to love others higher than ourselves. That’s an superior command that’s solely obtainable by way of God’s supernatural love. If this quite simple, but very profound reality might be understood and utilized, then strife would stop (Prov. 13:10). The world would see Christianity as by no means earlier than, and we might uncover the true pleasure that comes from serving somebody apart from ourselves.
There’s a lot confusion at this time with regards to love as a result of we’ve got just one English phrase (love) to explain a broad side of meanings. For instance, if I stated, ‘I really like my spouse, I really like apple pie, and I really like my canine,’ clearly I’m not speaking about love in the identical diploma or definition.
God’s sort of affection; the best form of love, is AGAPE. That is after we search the welfare or betterment of others even after we don’t really feel affection. AGAPE love doesn’t come from one’s emotions. Jesus displayed this AGAPE form of love by going to the cross and dying for us regardless that He didn’t really feel like dying. Jesus sought the betterment of you and me, no matter His emotions.
We, too, can AGAPE love our enemies regardless that we don’t have a heat feeling of affection for them. If they’re hungry we are able to feed them; if they’re thirsty we can provide them a drink. We will select to hunt the betterment and welfare of others no matter how we really feel.
If anybody turns into a servant and humbles himself with the motive of being exalted, then he’s not actually fulfilling Jesus’ command. Jesus is instructing a few true, servant’s coronary heart, that loves others greater than itself and can joyfully go with out in order that another person might prosper.
