How You Love Determines How You See.

Love for God’s word brings the abiding presence of God into your life and gives you Heaven’s perspective.

John 14:23  “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

          Love for truth opens your eyes to more truth, and changes you perception of reality. You move from a worldly perspective to Heavens perspective. We must fight every day to maintain heaven’s perspective.

Love for people changes yours, and other peoples perception of yourself.

John 13:35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

          How you treat others not only effects how others see you, but it greatly effects how you see yourself. How you see yourself greatly effects you ability to believe.

Love for God changes your perception of Him because He manifests His love to you.

John 14:21 …”He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”

Nothing solidifies your faith more than God manifesting Himself to you in a personal way. You move from “believing in Him” to knowing that He is real and He loves you.

Love for God and people empowers your faith.

Galatians 5:6  For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.

         Love is to faith, as gasoline is to a car. Love supplies the dynamic energy to make your faith become a reality in your life.

~ The Law Of Life ~

Romans 8:2 ~ 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. (NKJV)

These are the two Spiritual laws that govern everything. We must choose what law to live under.

In 1908 Dr. John G. Lake was on a missionary trip to Africa when the bubonic plague broke out killing many people. He cared for and prayed for the sick as well as help bury the dead.

Britain sent a relief ship with medical supplies and a corps of doctors to help. When they encountered Mr. Lake they asked him, “What protective equipment have you been using?”

“Sirs,” Lake replied, “ I believe that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death. And as long as I walk in the light of that law of life, no disease or no germ will attach itself to me.”

The doctors urged him to use their protective measures and Lake refused. Instead proposed an experiment for the doctors to perform on him. Lake said to take some of the foam from the lungs of a deceased plague victim and examine them under a microscope and observe the living plague cells. He then put the foam in his hand and the doctors watched the plague cells die before there eyes. Needless  to say they were amazed! Dr. Lake told them, “That is the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.”

Romans 8:1-4 ~ 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (NKJV)
