You who are called to love!

Posted by appolus on February 12, 2020

It’s not what goes into your mouth that defiles you; you are defiled by the words that come out of your mouth (Matt 15:11)

Isn’t it interesting that Jesus would say that it was not what man takes into him that defiles him, but it is what comes out of him that can be defiling. As I was praying I caught a vision of tall trees, a vast forest. It occurred to me that trees soak up the carbon dioxide that we as humans breathe out, and in turn the trees turned this poison into life giving oxygen.

We, the children of God are the trees of the world and we move in harmony to the wind of the Spirit. We take upon us the offenses of this world. The hatred, the bitterness and the false accusation and we do this all in our every-day lives whether it is with coworkers or family and friends or even brothers and sisters in Christ. We are called to this brothers and sisters.

Do you have the grace and the faith and most especially the love to be able to fulfill your role? Are you dealing with difficult people right now? Have you been hurt and offended? Breathe deeply brothers and sisters, yes take it in and breathe out life giving love in response. The closer these people are the more difficult this will be. Who can hurt us more than our spouses and our children? Yet the degree of difficulty only magnifies the love and the power of God in us. Nothing tills the soil of our hearts more than this. Nothing removes the stones in our own hearts more than this. It is power in the Kingdom and weakness in the world. What Kingdom shall we walk in saints? How then shall we grow?

You have been supernaturally created to be able to take this poison and darkness and expel love and light in its place. It is our calling. When we stand before the Lord, I am fully convinced that this will be our offering to Him. For what reward will the world give you to take the insult? Where is the pat on the back for returning love for evil? There will be no recognition, no standing ovation in this world, but the Lord will see and what He sees is pure gold. And this is the treasure that will meet us in the world to come.

Into the darkness of this world we shall bring the light of Christ, for we are the bearers of the light. The love of Jesus our Lord, the love of God the Father, poured out upon us who deserved nothing is a monumental thing. In the light of this love we have been called to love the world. We who have been forgiven for so much have been called to forgive. Will it tear the flesh from your back? Will it scar you? Certainly it will. Look to Calvary and see the scars upon our Saviors back, see how they pierced Him and hated Him. You scars tell the story saints, it tells the story of His glory. Not on some majestic mountaintop but down in the mud and the mire of the deepest valleys. This is how we share His glory. Treasure in the Kingdom and garbage to this world. Diametrically opposed worlds separated by paradoxes. Jesus sees your scars, and the secrets that He sees He will one day reward you openly for. Maybe not in this world but certainly in the next.
