YOUR LOVE FOR HIM
For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead (2 Corinthians 5:14).
The love Paul had for the Lord was the drive behind his overwhelming passion to preach, defend and stand on the truth of the Gospel. Read Galatians 2:11-13 NKJV and see how he defended the truth to Peter. He said, “Now when Peter had come to Antioch, I withstood him to his face, because he was to be blamed; for before certain men came from James, he would eat with the Gentiles; but when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. And the rest of the Jews also played the hypocrite with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy.”
In the 20th verse, he said, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” What a conviction! It was about his love for the Lord.
Christ’s love for us, which was demonstrated in His vicarious death, must elicit from us such love as Paul writes about here, and as John says in 1 John 4:19 NKJV: “We love Him because He first loved us.” How much do you love Him?
It’s important that every so often, you open your heart to Him in prayer, and tell Him, “Lord Jesus, I love you with all my heart, today and forever; this is what I want to do—loving you and doing your Word.” Your love for Jesus Christ means more to God than anything you could ever give to Him. So, love Him with all your heart and prove it in keeping His Word.
Lord Jesus, I love you; I really do, with all my heart and forever; this is what I live for—loving you and doing your Word. I’m constrained by my love for you, to preach the Gospel and spread it with urgency around the world. Amen.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
1 John 5:3 AMPC
For the [true] love of God is this: that we do His commands [keep His ordinances and are mindful of His precepts and teaching]. And these orders of His are not irksome (burdensome, oppressive, or grievous).
1 John 4:19
We love him because he first loved us.

#AFFIRMATIONTRAIN 24TH FEBRUARY.
I affirm that I am an offspring of the Word, and my life is filled with the beauty of the Spirit! Forever, O Lord, your Word is settled in my life. It’s settled in my business, settled in my finances, settled in my ministry, settled in my health, settled in my family, settled in all that concerns me. Hallelujah!
My life is an endless stream of the supernatural because I live in the Name of Jesus. I’ve been given the power of attorney to use the Name of Jesus over the devil and the cohorts of hell, and dominate circumstances. I am seated together with Christ in the place of power; far above all principalities, power, might, dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come. Hallelujah!
Jesus is the Lord of my life; therefore, I live in dominion over sin, sickness and infirmities, and every opposing force, accusation or hindrance. Irrespective of the perils and tribulations around the nations of the world, I am shielded and protected; I am like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out her roots by the river. I don’t know when heat comes because I dwell in the secret place of the Most High!
I am healthy, strong, and prosperous; I make great and glorious things happen in my life, in God’s kingdom, and in the lives of others, to the glory of Jesus Christ. I am up and alive; fruitful and productive by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am complete in Christ; nothing is lacking in my life, because Christ is my completeness! I am from above; therefore, I refuse to condescend to this earthly plane of life. As Jesus is, so am I in this world. Hallelujah!
I am in charge; I’m living an exceptionally great life which the Father had prepared for me. Glory to God. Hallelujah!
