The Love Factor

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 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. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
- 1 Corinthians 13:1-7 (NKJV)

Love is the greatest force in the life of the Christian. It is what provides the foundation for all Christian activities. Without the motivation of love every faith project becomes valueless and all the sacrifices we make, no matter how extreme, lose their significance.

Love is much more than a feeling, a thought or an action. Love is a nature; it is the nature of God and it has also become our nature as Christians through the new birth. This true and genuine love is divine in kind and is also an important distinction between the Christian and the rest of mankind.

With the love factor on our side, we are able to conquer every other force or nature that is in existence. Love never fails! And so when we operate in love no matter how difficult or complex any situation might appear, we will eventually come out of it victorious.

Walking in love can be difficult on the flesh, but it is always worth the effort in terms of the resulting benefits and outcome. Walking in love comes with a lifetime of dividends, so it can be seen as our most valuable discipline as children of God.

Beloved, practice walking in love today; refuse to get in a “flesh fight” with anyone for the rest of this year. I prophesy that you will see supernatural success in your endeavours. Amen! 

Additional Scripture Reference(s):
Romans 5:5
Prayer & Confession of Faith: Love is my nature. Therefore, starting from today, I purpose to walk in love all the time. I will conquer every negative force in existence. I will have supernatural success in everything I do. Amen!
