But have not love, I am nothing

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  1 Corinthians 13:2

No matter what spiritual gift we have been gifted and anointed by the Holy Spirit, if we have not love we are nothing.  Everything we do must be driven by the love of God.  When we walk in the love of Christ we will walk with integrity and humility.  There are many today who claim titles for God’s kingdom when in fact they are nothing.

Many in the charisma masquerade as messengers of the Lord, when in fact they are tools of the enemy to infiltrate the camp of God and cause division, chaos, and discord.  But in this hour we must draw near with confidence to the Lord and become serious students of God’s word.  The more time we spend in the Lord’s presence the more we become sensitive to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit.  The more time we spend in God’s presence the more we are transformed and the more we grow in God’s love and are filled with God’s love.

The more we are transformed into the character and nature of Christ the more we see things through the eyes of Jesus.  When Jesus walked this earth He saw every person as a lost sheep without a shepherd.  Even the very Pharisees who cried for Him to be crucified He was filled with love for them.  As He hung from the cross beaten and bruised beyond recognition He cried out Father forgive them for they know not what they do.

We live in a world filled with broken people.  Even the terrorist today who desire to destroy all people upon the earth are simply lost sheep without a shepherd.  Let us do all things in love and walk in love.  For when we walk in God’s love, grace, and mercy, we shall see the glory of God manifest in our day.  It will drive us to deeper places of prayer and it will drive us to sow the gospel where ever we go.  Without love we are truly nothing.
