"As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love."
Before His ascension, Jesus said to His disciples, “…continue ye in my love,”. The love of Christ is real; it’s beyond anything in this world. Ephesians 3:17-19 says, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.”
Therefore, for us, carrying out the work of the ministry, doing the work of the Lord, is as a result of the compelling force of His love. That way, our service to Him in the ministry of the Gospel isn’t really a job, even though in a sense it’s a job; rather, in reality, it is walking in fellowship with Him, and living in His love. Many people give excuses for not to do the small things of the house of the God. They say that they are very busy with their life, so they cannot share their hands in the work of the church. But they forget that their availability arises out of their love! When you are passionate about his love, you only take steps that make him happy.
In addition, because you’re living in His love, you’re ever renewed and ever refreshed; your vision is ever expanding, and your life forever moves forward.
In Him, you’re on a journey of ever-increasing glory; you never have to think about staying strong, finishing strong, or hoping that you’ll fulfil your divine destiny; no. Rather, you’re just so fulfilled and thrilled that you’re in Him, and He’s in you; He’s your glory, your success, and your vitality! And all you care about is to know Him more, please Him, and love Him more! Every day becomes another beautiful opportunity to relish His love, enjoy His blessedness, and bask in His glory, with more love in your heart for Him. Hallelujah!
