Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
Believers are vessels for GOD’S love. His love flowing through us is a powerful force that enables us to do more than the unbeliever, who RELIES upon himself. The love that dwells in us is described perfectly in our verse of the day!
1 Corinthians 13:4
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud…”
First, “love is patient,” and with GOD’S Spirit living within us, we are empowered to wait upon His timing and purpose so we can be patient with others, knowing GOD is working on their behalf.
“Love is kind,“ and with GOD’S love, we have the capacity to be genuinely kind, regardless of how others may treat us.
Love is not jealous or envious. Jealousy is a fear of losing someone. GOD’S love gives us the security to hold relationships more loosely.
“Love does not brag, is not arrogant.” We understand our value in GOD’S eyes, and there is no need to be arrogant!
GOD’S love is powerful! When we allow His caring Spirit to flow through us, we can have a profound effect upon our world!
Love & Blessings,
