Being Reuben Ellis

The God Kind of Love

In this time of great spiritual, physical, and emotional turmoil, it is important to realize that our world is in need of love more than ever. And not just any kind of love, but the God kind of love: love does not "delight in evil" or the calamity of others, but "rejoices with the truth" that God only desires the best for humanity. A great majority of our problems—from poverty to sickness and even death—stem from a lack love and not allowing God to love through us.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (I Cor. 13:13)

Hope is an earnest expectation. It is the very fuel of faith and power to manifest that which we hope for. However, without love our faith is ineffective, for "faith works through love." And without faith, our hopes will inevitably die. Therefore, as you search in prayer seeking answers to the challenges that you face, consider your love walk. Are you walking in the God kind of love?
