Love Unfeigned - Steem Church Philippines
2Co 6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,
1Pe 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
I am a missionary and have been called to serve the Philippines and Eastern Asian Countries. Home base is in Mindanao. This is sometimes a very volatile area. So much so, the mission organizations that I have had a long term relationship with, told me they could not, in good conscience support this work. They said it was too dangerous and I should get my affairs in order before coming here.
God is the Artist! I was just able to record His Handiwork for all to see.
I am a Missionary Soul Winner
My one singular favorite thing to do is to tell others about Jesus! To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord’s favor. To. Pray for the sick and the afflicted and to see God’s Power at work first hand. What will cause someone to stop and listen to our message?
Jesus said that they or the people on the outside, the onlookers will know we are His disciples, as we have love one for the other. But if we meet a fellow believer or Christ Follower, usually we ask, “What denomination?” Sadly denominations separate us. Immediately after a person says they are Baptist or Pentecostal, Assembles of God or Church of the Brethren, we decide immediately, that we know what the other believes and whether or not we can fellowship or labor together in God’s Vineyard. Instead of looking at what we have in common, we conclude that there are things in which we disagree and let these things keep us apart.
The conclusions of the world looking in.
THEIR LOVE IS FAKE!!!
Why would we be admonished to have love that is “unfeigned”?
Seems to me, Jesus said that we are to love even our enemies, but we can’t even love the brethren. It is time to lay down our denomination and their systematic beliefs and to study our bibles for ourselves. Then we can work side by side in the most important and noble work in all of the universe. THE GREAT COMMISSION
Why Would Some Stranger stop and Listen to you or me?
People are pretty sensitive to what is genuine and what is fake. If you are faking your love, they will surely sense it. If love is sincere, likewise this will also be evident.
Php 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
Php 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
GOD LOVING THROUGH US
Rom 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
I am not talking about me. I am giving honor and credit to Jesus Christ
Before I met Jesus, I was incredibly selfish, self centered, self indulgent, angry and unloving person you ever met. If anything good every comes out of my life, it will be because of Him
The Apostle Paul said that he would rather have his own name blotted out from the book of life, than to see his countrymen be lost. Now this is Love Unfeigned! Stoned, shipwrecked, beaten and left for dead. In danger of wild beasts and starvation. Why? To save some!
I was told just yesterday, that I was going overboard. I was taking my mission to far! That i was too radical. That God does not expect the same from His people today as He did back then. But I think it is the other way around. God’s people have lost that radical love. Love for God and love for the people that Jesus died for.
Love that would provoke you to pray, to miss some sleep, to lay down some hobbies to allow time for the eternal. To even risk our lives for people we don’t even know. People with different skin color or customs. Even people that are of different beliefs or even hate us.
