The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
I Timothy 1:5 (NLT)
When is love not love? When it is done with the wrong motives, wrong means, and wrong rationale. There have been all sorts of corrupt, devious and unsanctified behaviors done in the “name” of love. How many have been lured down a wrong path because of promises of love that never came to fruition? How may fights and wars have been in the name of love when really it was about power, revenge or some other motivation? Paul knew that “love” is complex and when it comes to community, we need to love with pure motives, upright behavior and for the glory of God. We need to let our “love” really be His “love.” So today, let us love one another but let’s love with a love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
Dear Father, help me to love others the way You do. Fill me with Your love so I can love with a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.
