Love, Faithfulness, And Meekness

One of Jesus’ most well-known teachings is this, “So always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the meaning of the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12

Many are so sure that they are ready to stand before Him but they don’t see their hearts towards others. They are still jealous, envious, boastful, slandering, unrighteously judging, gossiping, quarreling, and betraying one another. 

Where is His love, faithfulness, and meekness in you towards one another? Many people accuse one another of wrong, thinking they are right. But love holds no records of wrongs. If you willingly put down jealousy, resentment, envy and hatred towards others, Jesus will help you with the rest. 

Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”. Matthew 5:9

It is all in the heart and the will. If you willfully engage in gossip, slander, hatred, jealousy, envy, pride and self righteousness, thinking you are holy and righteous and better than others, you are in serious trouble with Him. He resists those who have pride in their hearts towards Him and others. 

Love is the ultimate heart test. If you “have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge…but do not have love, (you) gain nothing”. 1 Corinthians 13:2. If you stand in self righteousness, pride, pointing fingers, judging, and quarreling, you are in serious trouble with Him. 

Many have hardened their heart, using the internet to tear down one another, wounding others with their tongues and have crippled many and left them to be dead. Unless you repent and make it right with Him, you will be left behind. Love is His standard of holiness and righteousness. Patience, kindness, mercy, long-suffering, meekness. To be worthy to stand before Jesus, you must be like Him HEART TO HEART. 

How can you stand before Jesus face to face when you hate the very ones He died for? Love covers a multitude of faults. It covers even the faults of those who wrong you, curse you, insult you, persecute you, and speak evil of you. He can overlook your weaknesses but He cannot overlook willfulness. Those who are His disciples must walk in His ways.

You must forgive the ones who hurt you so you won’t hurt the ones who love you. Don’t let someone who loves you pay for what others did to you.
