Weapons of Spiritual Warfare - Love

1 Corinth 13 v 4 - 8(a):  Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; (5) does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; (6) does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; (7) bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  (8a) Love never fails.....

Love suffers long,
Love is kind,
Love doesn't envy,
Love does not brag,
Love is not prideful,
Love does not behave rudely.
Love isn't selfish,
Love is not provoked,
Love does not think badly of someone,
Love does not think evil of you,
Love does not rejoice when evil is done,
Love rejoices in the truth,
Love bears all things,
Love believes in you,
Love hopes in and for you,
Love endures all things,
Love NEVER fails.....

Imagine living and breathing in this manner?  Where would be the opportunity for revenge?  Where would be the opportunity or ability to destroy another?  Where would be the ability or desire to hurt another?  Where would be the signs of selfishness and selfish ambition?  Where would be the desire to encourage evil?  Where would be the loneliness experienced the world over?  If we only but loved, we would have no battles to fight.  We would have no wars to contend with!  We would have joy, unity, faithfulness, service, willing sacrifice of time and resources!

We would have all the God desired for us to have.  It is ours for the taking... Let us do all, to love!

What a powerful weapon love is!

God bless
