Love And Cover From The Heart

by Hazel Straub

God calls us to love others from the heart. Challenges come and expose our hard self-righteous heart, with its lack of love, when we disagree and disapprove of others, who fail to meet our standards.

God desires his tender and pure love to dwell in our hearts, reflecting his forgiveness and merciful agape love, for us. Although, factually right about an issue, our attitude is argumentative, hateful, condemning and nasty, when we fight to prove our point of view.

The love of God, however, covers sins and transgressions like a quilt. His son died for his enemies, to save them. Since the Spirit of Jesus resides in us, this love extends out of us, to our governing authorities, fellow Christian brothers, co-workers, neighbors and relatives. We need mercy and forgiveness, so extend it to others.

Lord, purify my heart and fill it with your love, so I can love like you!

Proverbs 10:12 (CJB)
“Hate stirs up disputes,
but love covers all kinds of transgressions.”

  1. We cannot ‘like’ some people but we can love them with the love of Christ.

    • The love of God demonstrated through human vessels is more powerful than any defensive weapon. It disarms and changes enemies and ourselves! God’s love shown by Stephen the first Christian martyr included intercession for Daddy God to forgive those stoning him to death. Saul the Terrorist became Paul the Apostle to the Gentile World due to this love. Powerful!
