Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth” (1 John 3:18).

To walk in love means nothing more and nothing less than to follow the Lamb, wherever He goes. The natural man does not want to do this. Peter, the most zealous and fiery of all the disciples, did not want to follow the Lord’s way. When he followed Jesus to Calvary, it says that he “…followed him afar off” (Matthew 26:58). As long as we reject the way of the Lamb, as long as we “follow Him afar off” and avoid the sufferings of Christ, we will continue to have our shortsighted and rebellious attitude: Why me? With that question, we will not notice that the eternal God wants to reveal Himself to us through the very sufferings of Jesus Christ in our lives.

How can our love for God become deeper and more fervent, so that we are able to follow the Lamb wherever He goes? By contemplating anew the tremendous truth of Romans 8:32, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” This is the infinite love of God, which He was only able to show us through the bitter sufferings and death of His Son. This love produces love in our hearts. God really has given us all things in Jesus, so we may experience the reality of Romans 5:5 continuously, “The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”
