Color Me Love
For those who walk in the flesh, the law is given.
Some only see in black and white.
And, yet, there is a more excellent way. Others see in color
and, when they do, that color is love.
"Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence
1 John 3:21
The Bible tells us to love our enemies, pray for them, turn the
other cheek, and many like things. It also tells us to stand
against evil. There are times to pluck up that which was
planted, to shake the dust off our feet, and more.
If we hold to the law, we remain captive in circumstances that
God gave us other provisions for. We still adamantly believe in
the law. The difference is that we trust God to reveal to us
which law He requires at any given time.
What ever God speaks to us is the ultimate/absolute law.
Praise God, He is a Living God!
"Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I
have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary
The whole entire law is complete and fulfilled through
following this one verse: thou shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself. If you do that, you have covered God's intent for every
law within the Bible.
Sometimes, tuff love will be required. Perhaps, sacrificial
love is what will meet the need. Holy love may be necessary.
Sometimes we are to love as a parent, other times as a child.
How do we know when our rightful place should be where? We can
only know by listening for and following God, as He is the One
that sees their heart. And always, above every other form of
love, we have to stand for our love for Him.
"Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all
men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle
of Christ ministered by us,
written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God;
not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart."
II Co. 3:2-3
God is love and, however often He requests to live through us,
let us give a right answer and say, "Color me love."
