MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 27 January 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Unconditional Love
TOPIC: Unconditional Love (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 27 January 2019)
Bible In One Year: Exodus 16-18; Matthew 18:1-20
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 3:17-19
MEMORY VERSE: “`For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
The Bible says that Christ’s love for the Church is the model for husbands’ love for their wives. Christ’s love was expressed fully when He gave Himself up for the Church by death on a cross. Every Christian husband should demonstrate the same level of love for his wife. Yesterday, we examined the first kind of love Christ demonstrated towards the church: unfeigned love or love without deception. We also enjoined you that you love your wife with sincere love that flows deeply from your regenerated heart.
Another kind of love Christ demonstrated towards the Church is unconditional love. God loves us unconditionally in two ways. Similarly, Christ loves the Church unconditionally the same way. First, He loves the Church with electing love unconditionally. The Bible says that while we were yet sinners, God made Christ to die for us. That is, in spite of our sin, God showed us love. Also, Ephesians 1:4-5 says, “He chose us in him before the foundation of the world…for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ. Acts 13:48 says, “As many as were appointed to eternal life believed.” We are appointed to enjoy His love unconditionally.
Second, Christ loves the Church (and that means us) with regenerating love before we met any condition. The new birth is not God’s response to our meeting the condition of faith. On the contrary, the new birth enables us to believe. In 1 John 5:1, the Bible says, “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been [already!] born of God.” Similarly John 1:13 affirms that we were not born of the will of the flesh or the will of man, but of God.
Unconditional love does not mean justifying sinners. Shall we abound in sin and expect grace to abound? It does not mean that you should close your eyes to the apparent inadequacies and laws of your spouse. Rather, correct him or her in love and strive to see the desired change in the areas he or she is weak and not pleasing God. Unconditional love is showing great affection in spite of your spouse’s flaws, believing he or she is work in progress in God’s hand and that you are her purpose partner. Beloved Brother, give your wife love with no strings attached –the type Jesus freely gave to you not minding your past and your mistakes.
WHEN YOU STOP EXPECTING YOUR SPOUSE TO BE PERFECT, YOU CAN LOVE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE.
The honey in your marriage shall not dry up.
Let the unconditional love of God be regenerated in my life, in the name of Jesus.
Let the love of Christ be regenerated in the church of God, in the name of Jesus.
O God, arise and fill me to your measure, in the name of Jesus.
O Lord my Father, establish me in Your love, in the name of Jesus.
I break myself lose from the bondage of hatred, in the name of Jesus.
I destroy anything that is not of God in my life and in my environment, in the name of Jesus.
Holy Spirit, teach me to be friendly, in the name of Jesus.
