Loving Your Neighbors

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.1 CORINTHIANS 2:12-16

One of our goals as lighthouses for Jesus Christ is to love people, but lighthouses don’t have drunks on them. At least not my church does. We love Jesus and we love others in the same way that God loves us and Jesus loves us by demonstrating His love through us.

THINK OF THE ELEVEN HOUSEWIVES.

There are 11 couples pictured in the destabil verse above and three of them are from our traditional church background. We are used to these eleven women and now they are eleven married women, with a husband, living together, with opportunities and responsibilities for each of them to contribute to the other. They also have their husbands, who are themselves responsible to contribute to the welfare of the other.

NOW, CLOSE YOUR EYES, let your ears hear the sound of the eleven houses. What sound is sounded in the coming days is going to be a sound of love in the true sense of the word. These eleven women are going to represent the Church in that God is love and the love of Jesus Christ is going to go before and behind the Prophetic words spoken about the one God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Don’t forget your hearing and your hearing. noises and your distractions.

Listen, so that even the eleven don’t forget:***

1. IAN WARFARE OF THE FAITHFUL. They are aware of the most trustworthy character in their lives, and that is the LORD GOD. They seek to be obedient in little things but they are obedient in big matters. They are mindful of what the LORD wants from them.

2. THEY HAVE FAITH AND OBEDIENCE. Things may not be going according to plan or in the timing they had hoped for, but the obedience of faith in the power of Jesus Christ will get them through any storm. Obedience via faith is the only way to overcome.

3. THE WELFARE OF THE HUMANITY. The shoulders of the human race are burdened, as is the burden of the faithfulness of the women. The fault is not theirs, the blame is on the shoulders of the leaders.

4. YOU CAN DO THE WORKS OF OUR LORD BUT YOU DON’T BELONG WITH THE WORKS. Faithfulness is a work, it can only be performed by the identity of Jesus Christ. You are not to be a barrier to the Lord’s work by your willingness to listen to the voice of the human leader.

5. THEHumans are prone to make excuses. This is the big one, as a race we are slacking. We are not as good a race as we used to be and the human leader is not fast enough to take the blame. The leader is distanced from the race by this action. The race is not as good as it used to be.

6. YOU CAN’T REACH GOD. It is dangerous to have the mindset that the work is a solo. The Holy Spirit is the helper and the helper is a solo. It is the responsibility of each individual to go as the Holy Spirit leads and return with the confession of faith (The Faith Fellowship)

7. REWARD AND recompense. There is a principle called the unequally yoked and it is demonstrated when we treat people as we wish to treat them. Now this principle is not always necessarily being outright dishonest or unfeeling, but just a natural application of the word. If I wish you well, it is not as good as if you wish me well. I am not always going to make it a point to speak to you, shake your hand or make eye contact with you. I am going to treat you as I wish to be treated, however I need to be courteous, I need you to speak up and call me on my mistakes. I only have eyes for you, I can’t see the whole picture.

In the Kingdom of God we all get our little space in the back. It is not meant to feel crowded and irritable, but we all deserve our little space in the back. We aren’t as important as we think we are.

Let usSadly, many of us expect more. More love, more attention, more action. Most of us would be willing to settle for a few “I know you grasp my pain” signs, an “I feel for you” hug, or “I am sorry for your loss”. If it gives us even a bit of comfort.
