Day 27: Saturday 13th April pray for Community Church Blackburn to be built up in Love
Why did God create humans?
God didn’t need us, he’s self-sufficient?H e doesn’t need us for anything. He doesn’t need us to do anything, provide anything, we are a pointless creation really.
In fact, humans are just a hassle!! We trash the perfect world God created and all we seem to do is cause God trouble.
It seems to me that there can only be one logical reason why God would create Humans and that is due to love!!
You see, before the world was created within the trinity, God the Father loved Jesus who loved Holy Spirit so much that they wanted to share and open up that love so God created us.
It’s a little like families and children. There is no real logical reason for parents to have children. They don’t do anything at first for you!! In fact often they stop you doing what you want to do and cause you much inconvenience,trauma and cost lots of money. But why do couples have children well its to do with love. Lisa and me loved each other so much that we wanted our love to grow and be shared so we had children. I think the family is a beautiful picture of Gods love for us and the trinity.
Well if that’s why we’re created if we don’t love we’re not fulfilling our function and the more we love the more we meet our destiny and design.
The two greatest commandments is love God and love your neighbour and my prayer is as a people and church we abound in both more and more.
I agree with the Beatles all you need is love!!
Paul the apostle says without love everything we do is like a clanging bell and pointless!
But love is Hard! It requires sacrifice, grace and mercy. Tough decisions. We’re not talking lovey dovey love we’re talking about loving even if that person doesn’t love us back!! Its called Agape love.
I could talk for hours about love! 😊
Today pray for more love for God and more love for people and out of that, all other things will fall into place 😊
Helpful Bible Verses
1 Corinthians 13
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself. ‘There is no commandment greater than these.”
"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity."
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.
