“He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” – 1 John 4:8 (KJV)
If we have come to understand that love is what we need to make heaven, then what is it that we do that is not classified as love?
1. Self-glory : We have treated more than once that you should not seek glory for yourself, see all that you do as a gift to the soul that receives it. If you seek glory,
desiring to be patted on the back for the great job that you have done, then don’t expect that a
record or reward of what you have done is being recorded in heaven.
Matthew 6:1 “Take care!
Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired, because then you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” (NLT)
It may be hard to understand what has been said here because we as humans want to receive glory, but let me tell you, if you go on a soul
winning trip so as to get a reward in church, then you will lose your crowns in heaven. If you give
financially so that you can get noticed in church, you will lose your reward in heaven.
- Impatience and full of oneself: “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.”
2 Corinthians 13:4 – 5 (NLT)
We need to love correctly, not the false adulterated love that the world gives for its glory, but the one that seeks the glory of the one and only creator.
Prayer: Lord, I ask again let me love like You,
work on me from now on to be more like Christ.
