MONTH OF FEBRUARY, 2022

TOPIC FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY: Love Never Fails.

It is written, 1 Corinthians 13:8, "Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away."

Fear of failure. It's haunted all of us at some time in our lives. Popular psychology tells us to adjust to it. But the Word of God tells us that there is a failure-proof way to live without it. It is the way of love.

If you want to know real success, you must learn to be moved and motivated by love. That's how Jesus was when He was on the earth.

Even when John the Baptist was senselessly, brutally murdered and Jesus went away to be alone, He didn't deviate from the way of love. For Matthew 14:6-14 says that even then in that emotionally taxing time when the people followed Him and would give Him no solitude, He was moved with compassion and healed their sick.

I used to wonder how Jesus could just turn away from that terrible crime and not retaliate. What I didn't realize was that He did retaliate. He overcame the works of Satan with compassion. He defeated hatred with love. He attacked Satan in the spirit realm by destroying his works of sickness and disease. So many of us can destroy the works of the enemy, be it in the home, school, workplace... the church - if we would attack the situation in love. I must admit, sometimes love is not the first thought that comes to your mind, but if we allow the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us we can overcome evil with good (love).  Read, Romans 12:21.

Compassion doesn't strike at the surface of things. It goes to the root of the problem. That's why it always succeeds. Is it not written, 1 Peter 4:8, "And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Bishop Clary K. Butler, Sr., Senior Bishop of The House of God Church, Keith Dominion, reminded us in our June General Assembly to "Bring Back The Love." Remember, if love goes before you, the ultimate plan of God comes alive and others will understand that God is love and Hs love is not failing within us.

"But wait!" you may say. "I can't operate like that. I'm not Jesus."

Yes you can, because the Word of God says that His love has been shed abroad in your heart! Read, Romans 5:5. And 1 John 2:5 says His love is perfected in you as you keep His Word. Commit to living the life of love today. Watch God turn failure into success at home, at work...in any situation. Love never fails!

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14:1-14
