Adapted from “Love Is a Force” by Audrey Mack

LOVE IS MORE THAN A FEELING OR A DUTY—LOVE IS A FORCE. 

It is a force that always guided and motivated Jesus.

“And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.” —Matthew 14:14

“I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way." —Matthew 15:32

What compelled Jesus to heal the multitudes and multiply the bread? The force of Love.

The same force that was in Jesus is residing on the inside of everyone who is born of the Spirit. Romans 5:5 declares that the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. 

Galatians 5:22 says, “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace….”

Just like an apple or pear, love comes in seed form, and it is up to us to grow it. 

Love is like a muscle. It produces power, but it must be exercised to grow. Every time we yield to an opportunity to walk in love, our love grows.

By continually training our flesh, we can come to a place of maturity where love becomes a guiding and motivating force.

Have you ever felt a surge of love and compassion for someone, and it had nothing to do with you? 

Maybe you saw someone you didn’t know, and a flow of compassion flooded your heart. When you feel this kind of love, you feel God, for God is love. No, it’s not just you — it is God prompting you to minister to that person, and as you do, God shows up. It could be healing, a word of knowledge, or simply comfort and encouragement. Any act of kindness will be a reflection of God to that person.

When love becomes perfected in us, there will be no fear to step out by faith because perfect love casts out fear!

If we want to see more miracles, more gifts of the Spirit, more people coming into the kingdom of God, we will have to be willing to yield to that force of love. 

When we follow love, we follow God, His will and His anointing—for GOD IS LOVE.
