LOVE & PAIN
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
What is Love? (John 3:16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
(1 John 4:10) Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son [ to be] the proitiation for our sins.
(John 15:13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
(Psalms 147:3) He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
If there is anyone who understands "Love & Pain" it is our Lord Jesus.
Daily we extend our love to people close to us, but then at times we show hatred and dislike towards people we know, and hardly ever do we show love to a stranger that we meet at the store, hospital, Dr's office, on the phone, or wherever we may go on a daily bases.
Jesus is love (John 3:16).
Our bodies are the temple of God ( 1 Corinthians 6:15-20), and we are to let our light so shine before men, that they may see our good works, and glorify our Father which is in heaven (Matthew 5:16).
Letting our light shine before men, gives us the opportunity to share the love of Jesus that dwells in our hearts, with those that are in "Pain", lost; to share with the broken in heart, that He [Jesus] healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Have you extended your love to a wounded [soldier] in the army of the Lord and to those that are in "Pain" and lost, today?
Let your light so shine , for greater is He who is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4).
Pain comes in many ways: sickness, relationship, abandonment, neglect, accidents, verbal abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse etc.
If you have hurt someone and caused them pain in any way, apologize? If you know someone that is in pain, let the Love of Jesus that dwells within your heart help bring healing? (Romans 8:35-39)
We are Representatives of God, and we are to do, what Jesus would do. Help bind up their wounds!.(Psalms147:3)
Praying for you always with JOY, Love your Sister in Christ Jesus, Equallia
