Part 1: You can Love Others The Way God Loves You





Learning how to love people is the most important thing that a Christian should be concerned about. But there’s something we often overlook. You see, after we’re born again, we hear that we should be loving people. Yet, we don’t seem to be able to do it and we think something’s wrong with us. Well, there are other phases of the love walk you have to go through before you can ever get around to loving people.

Number one, you really need to have a revelation about how much God loves you. It’s not enough to know about the love of God. You need to receive God’s love through personal experience.

Then you have to learn to love yourself. In other words, are you happy with the creation God made you to be? Or have you been trying to rework yourself into what you think the world wants to see?

Third, you have to learn how to love God. And loving God means one thing: obedience. Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). After we've received His love, it just becomes natural to do what He tells us to do. Let’s take a closer look at each step so we can really learn how to live in the love of God.

1) RECEIVING REVELATION ABOUT GOD’S LOVE I think a whole lot of people know how to sing, “Jesus loves me, this I know, “but they don’t know down deep in their heart that God loves them. So when everything is going good in their life, they may think God loves them. But when life gets hard, they begin to wonder where God is and if He ever loved them at all.

We need to get God’s love from our head down to our heart; where it becomes revelation. Then it doesn't matter what the enemy tells us, what other people may say, or what our circumstances may be we just know. And we know it so strongly that it can never be taken away from us.

How does a person receive revelation knowledge? I believe we need to actually, physically take time in our life to meet with God and receive it.

You know how a pig just wallows in the mud? They don’t care what they look like. They just go in there and get it all over them. Well, we need to spend time wallowing in the love of God. We need to soak in the love of God and get saturated in it.

A lot of people try to get God to love them by trying to behave perfectly. But God is love and all He wants us to do is act as receptacle of His love, and to simple take in what’s being freely offered.

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
