The Fulness of Love

(The poem below, after reading 1 John 4:10-21 and 1 John 5:14-16,

with particular focus on the bolded in 1 John 4:17 (KJV) ~ Herein is

our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment:

because as he is, so are we in this world)

 

Are we as God is?

In this world, do we frame Him

so that all men see?

 

This is revival,

seen, pure: the Sin-bearer's love,

the perfection of love.

 

Fearless before God,

for He chose to first love us,

joint love for Him shares.

 

From anything asked

at the Body's bended knee,

God adds to fulness.

 

Should we not bring back more of an emphasis on God's love to our pulpits?   A lot of folk want

to avoid being overly sentimental--kumbaya-ish.   This is undervaluing, underestimating, in short

not understanding the knitting effect of God's love within the congregation and the Body at-large.

We do need a refresher on the dynamic of "Body Life", of agape, to be complete as Christians.   I

won't belabor the point.   Reading the Epistle of 1 John 1:1-5 is more than adequate explanation.

 

"Be God's!" ~ said Rich Mullins.
