There is no substitute for love. There is nothing to compensate for a lack of love.
All types of Prayer and the gift of tongues is not a substitute for love:
I Corinthians 13:1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. (NASB)
All faith and knowledge is not a substitute for love:
I Corinthians 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge ; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (NASB)
Giving all that we have is not a substitute for love:
I Corinthians 13:3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. (NASB)
Nothing counts with God till we get back in love and forgiveness. There is no way around it. There is no other way than the narrow road of love.
I John 2:10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him. (NASB)
How do we get His love to truly operate in us…in fact how do we get His love inside us.
You can’t think of the wrong doings or evil they have done . For that may have not been them but Satan using them . You don’t have to love them and be their best friend . But God doesn’t want you to harbor hate or hard feelings against them either for that then affects you as a person . Pray that God helps them and love them as one of God’s children just maybe .. from a distance . God bless ?
I am pleased with what you have placed here.
The endless search for another way across the valley is painful and
tiresome. The inventions of the mind are constant in pursuit for another
way across. It is sad that some, if not many will spend their whole life
searching for another way across, even when they know that there is
no other way. Indeed, there is no substitute for love. One must be clear
though that we are talking about the love of God and not the false love
of men, which is not love at all. It would have been better for some of
us that we would have never heard the truth, than to have heard it and
turned our backs. May God be praised through His son Jesus. Keep up
the good work.
How do one love those who want to kill you, they visit witch doctor just to afflict u, seeing that God want to love even how enemies
