ORIGINAL TOPIC: 5 WAYS TO PROVE YOUR LOVE FOR THE LORD
Personally, I like to get motivated to love. God is good and has shown me love. He has loved unconditionally and His love has helped in trying situations.
Few days ago, I sat and wondered if I have shown God I love him like He has me. I found out I was doing little or nothing. I took down a couple of ways I could show , love. It’s worked for me because I feel I am reciprocating His love the little way I can.
1.PRAY TO HIM- Prayer is communication, what better way to show a person you love them than talking to them. Talking to God everyday and as consistently as possible shows that you value him. It shows you like to be around him because you love him.
2.LISTEN TO God TALK- While Prayer is you talking to God, studying your Bible; is God talking to you.
On the pages of the bible, you hear God’s voice. Just as much as He loves you talking to him , He loves you to hear Him talk. Remember it takes two to communicate. Listen to God talk to you via the scriptures.
3.LOVE YOURSELF- One way to show your love for God is to love yourself. You are made in His image and after His likeness. This means in function and structure you are exactly like God. Loving yourself therefore translates to loving the Lord.
4.HONOUR HIS NAME AND EVERYTHING THAT HAS HIS NAME ON IT – Treat as sacred everything that has God’s name on it. Treat God’s people with reverence, same as His Ministers. Treat God’s worship place with reverence also. Littering your church worship hall or compound doesn’t show reverence at all. Watch out you how talk to or talk about His Ministers.
5. PRACTICE FORGIVENESS – God I is love and in love is forgiveness. ‘ So shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if you show love one to another.’ You can easily replace love here with forgiveness.
