Billows Of Golden Love
Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22 NKJV)
This Scripture instructs us to flee lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, peace and love. All these things are spiritual and reflect the character of God. If we pursue them, we are pursuing the kingdom of God and His righteousness. As we seek holiness without which no one will see the Lord, God Himself will pursue us with His love and favor. His love is more intoxicating than any other love. It is better than the love of any earthly man or woman.
Your father, mother, spouse, children, siblings, friends can abandon you but God will never abandon you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Isn’t that love worth fighting for? There are levels, depths and realms of God’s love. We all have His love but experientially, we all taste different levels and flavors of that love. Jesus and Paul lived in, and constantly tasted the highest realms of that love.
The reality of that love crucifies the flesh and makes the world dead to you. When you taste that love, all you will crave for and desire will be that love. That love is the living water that it flows from the throne of grace. Fight to taste and rise to the pinnacle and climax of that love.
When you get to the climax, pinnacle and zenith of that holy love, your spirit will explode and burst out in holy and sacred tongues. You will experience holy fireworks and taste heaven on earth. Billows of golden clouds and love will envelop you and embrace you. He will hug you and hold you tenderly in His arms and you will breathe Him in. Oh the glory of that love. If only we hunger for a taste and continuous taste of that love. That love is pure and indescribable. God is love – His love is real.
We must get our priorities right and know who our first love is. Christ is our first love and He is the word of God. The word of God decorates us with purity and holiness when we put it on. We need to be clothed with the whole counsel of the word of God and the armor of God. When we do that, we are living according to divine spiritual order and God will be pleased with us, and crown us with His living love. The best feeling in the world is knowing that God is pleased with us. When we live in Him experientially, as He also lives in us in intimate fellowship, we are truly blessed.
May Christ truly be our first love in Jesus name.
