Spread the love



-Pastor David Oyedepo Jr at CHoP

*Genuine love is action love.
*Genuine love is obedient love.
*Genuine love is delightsome love.

Our Father, we have come before You this morning to give glory and praise unto You. We thank You Lord for the testimonies that we have heard, these are your doings and they are marvellous in our eyes, for it we give You all the praise. Lord, thank You for the answers to all of our prayers. Now Lord, our eyes are on You this morning, we ask that You speak to us. By Your Word, let everyone of us be changed and transformed. We give You all the glory for it, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.

It is important that we are reminded once again that every statement of scriptures applies to us as individuals.
Matthew 7:24-25
The Bible makes clear that this is addressed to whosoever and that whosoever is one who will take personal responsibility. It is important to understand that we may hear corporately, but the outcome of what we hear is determined individually. Every statement of scriptures is addressed to us as individuals – James 1:22-25
“…He is like a man”: it is always individualistic
“…He being not a forgetful hearer”: individual again
Every statement of scriptures is addressed to us as individuals. It is also important that we are reminded that every commandment of scriptures is absolutely for our profiting.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2
The effect, the profit of our engagement with every divine commandment is to us as individuals.
2 Timothy 3:16-17. Every commandment of God is to our profit, but it is our obedience of faith that qualifies us to access this profit. So the commandment is there, it is available: so it is not the knowledge of the commandment or the understanding of the commandment that produces result. The profit of the commandment is in our obedience of faith.
John 2:5 – The mother of Jesus said, “whatsoever He tells you to do, do it.”
You want to profit from it? Don’t just know it.
You want to profit from it? Don’t just understand it.

You want to profit from it?
Do it, believing.
It is vital for us to understand.
All through this week therefore, we are going to be examining the subject captioned:


We are going to be looking at specific commandments and we will look at the profits that accrue to us as we engage with those commandments.
The first commandment we are looking at today is the LOVE COMMANDMENT.
According to scriptures, this is described as the greatest commandment of the law – Matthew 22:36-40
Jesus made clear that this commandment of love is the greatest of all commandments.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3
Clearly from the scriptures, we are made to see that love is the greatest facilitator of profit in our Christian adventure. It is what makes all things profit us. This is so important, that is why it is described as the greatest of all commandments. From scriptures we discover that every true lover of God is ordained a high flyer, so the profit of loving God is becoming a high flyer in life.
Romans 8:28
Everyone that is a God lover is a living wonder. You always end up as a high flyer, all things work together for your good. They are organized and orchestrated for your change of level.
-I see that becoming somebody’s experience here, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:9
You can’t be a God lover and be grounded in life. NO. God lovers are always high flyers. So the profit of your love for God is not to God, it is to you. That is what you and I must understand and part of that profit is that it causes the high flyer in us to emerge.
-I see the high flyer in each one of us emerging in the name of Jesus Christ.

We must understand that delightsome obedience is the practical proof of genuine love for God. You see, love for God is not an emotion, love for God is not a feeling, love for God is expressed in practical action for God – John 14:21
He that has My commandments and keepeth them, it is that one that loves Me. So loving Him is not a song, loving Him is in action and the action that demonstrates the genuineness for God is our commitment to obedience. And that obedience must be done with delight – 1 John 5:3
A lover of God is never grieved by the commandments of God. A lover of God is delighted at the commandment of God.
Psalm 112:1-3
We look at all of this and we discover that a genuine lover of God will always end up a high flyer, but the proof of his love is in the delight of his obedience.
How excited are you at divine commandment? When the commandment of God is a burden to you, even if it is obeyed, it is a proof that you don’t love God. A lover of God is delighted at every commandment of God.
Psalm 1:2
God called David, “a man after His own heart” – 1 Samuel 13:14
And what did David say, “O, how I love thy law, it is my meditation all the day long”- Psalm 119:97
Every genuine lover of God is delighted at the commandment of God.

Therefore, the charge to us this morning is simple, let us not love in word, neither in tongue but in deed and in truth – 1 John 3:18
Genuine love is action love.
Genuine love is obedient love.
Genuine love is delightsome love.
-May each one of us receive grace to walk in genuine love for God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

As we conclude this morning, take note of this:
You can’t love God and not know
You can’t love God and it won’t show.
Everyone that genuinely loves God, they know it and those who genuinely love God, it will show,
-My prayer is that for each one of us, our love for God will be counted as genuine, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. May grace come upon each one of us for this. In Jesus precious name.

Prayers: Lord, I receive grace to love You in truth and to love You in deed. To love You practically, to love You in a way that is demonstrable, to love You in a way that is tangible. I receive that grace!!!
Give thanks. Appreciate Him, glorify Him, honour Him.
Father, thank You. In Jesus precious name we have prayed.
As you have asked for that grace this morning, that grace will be made manifest in your life. As you love Him in truth and in deed, the high flyer in you shall emerge. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Another day is here and make your decree. It is the beginning of another working week. All things must work together for good. Speak to the week right now and speak to the day.
Do it right now in faith, do it right now with confidence. What you decree and declare is what God delivers! Speak right now to the day, speak right now to the week.
Make your declaration, make your decrees. Do it wholeheartedly. Thank You mighty God, in Jesus precious name we have prayed.
Now according to every declaration, you have made this morning:
-This week is declared opened.
-All through this week, all things continue to work together for your good.
-The rain of special miracles that God began yesterday continues all through this week for you: Miracle packages, Miracle blessings, Miracle favour, Miracle open doors, Miracle speed, answer for you all through this week. Miracle encounters come your way this week, in the name of Jesus.
-All that you do is declared blessed. In your going out, you are blessed. In your coming in, you are blessed.
-Everywhere you are found, you are blessed.
-No evil is permitted to befall you.
In the name of Jesus, so shall it be, in Jesus precious name. It is done.
