Our Primary Motivation

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 22:

37 Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Every thought and every action we take should have Love as its primary motivation.  It is up to each of us to assess our own thoughts and actions lest FATHER  find it necessary to allow us to be substantially corrected to open our eyes to our error.  As we mature in Love, the trappings of the world become of no interest and we no longer seek our way at the expense of others.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 John chapter 2:

3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

There are many who are followers of Christ but the Sons and Daughters are called to be one with Christ.  When we fully grasp the revelation of Agape Love, we will abide in Christ and then we will walk just as He walked and we will see others as He sees them.  Effectively, we metaphorically become His Bride.  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in 2 Corinthians chapter 11:

2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity, purity, and singleness that is in Christ.

4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!

We must not allow men’s writings to move us away from the simplicity of being a pure, chaste bride betrothed to Christ.  The mind has a tendency to question and complicate matters by looking beyond the simplicity of Love as though one would find some notable mystery exalting oneself above others.  The true mystery is the simplicity of walking in Agape Love and it is right there before us if we have eyes to see.  A bride in Love is singularly focused on the bridegroom and looks for opportunities to express her Love.  Her eyes are not wandering but are fixed on the Bridegroom.  The bride does not seek to question the motives of her Lover, she only wishes to keep herself pure in His eyes.  Her desire is to be in full unity with Him, one with Him, and likewise our desire should be the same.

Let us not be deceived by the craftiness of the adversary and allow minds to be corrupted by the complexities of the world.  Let us keep our eyes fixed on being one with Christ and walk in Agape Love.
