Let Love Rule
Bishop Keith Butler

Clothe yourselves therefore, as God's own chosen ones... by putting on... patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper. Colossians 8:12 (AMP)

Sponsor AdWould you say that you need the power of God to endure whatever comes with a good temper? I certainly do. Well, God has given us all that is necessary to fulfill His will in life. And the element He is given us to maintain a good temper in all things is forgiveness, which comes out of a heart of love.

Forgiveness covers our heart and other extremities. Why is it so important? Unforgiveness does not hurt the other person; it hurts you. Also, God said that He will not forgive you unless you forgive others. Forgiveness helps you to maintain a good temper at all times.

Have you ever needed God to forgive you since you have been saved? Do you think you may need God to forgive you in the future? Well, if you forgive, then you will be forgiven. Your decision to walk in love is what will activate God's forgiveness when you need it. It is a decision. Not an emotion, and not a feeling. But it is a decision. You decide, "I am going to do this!" Period.

Love is the key that unlocks forgiveness for you. To forgive an individual is to decide that their wrong won't affect the decision you have made to do what the Word says in responding to their actions. You decide that you will not retaliate, but will respond scripturally. And as far as you are concerned, you will maintain a good relationship with that person, because you walk in love. A love person lets love rule the relationship.

God requires that you walk in love. That love will cause you to maintain a good temper because 1 Corinthians 13:4 says that love is patient. Love can endure anything and everything that comes your way. And when you have that kind of supernatural element working in your life, joy and peace is sure to follow.

Scripture References: Matthew 18:23-35; 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (Amp)

About: I am a christian woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul, and strives to love my neighbor as myself. I thank Him for His death, burial and resurrection, for the work of the cross and His precious blood that he shed for me and you on Calvary, that washed all of our sins away forever. The word of God says "Let the redemed of the Lord say so" I am one of the redemed and I'm not afraid nor am I ashamed to say so!. I give God all the glory and all the praise for all that He has, is, and will become in my life, It's because of Jesus that I am saved TODAY, AND I PRAISE HIM!
