I believe that this ministry is made up of people who is committed to the greatest commandment. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these." - Mark 12:30,31
The bible also says "God is love, whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him." - 1John 4:16
God's only motivator is LOVE. Our daddy is not looking for us to be law abiding Christians. He is not looking at how many times we made mistakes and what we did wrong and how many times we did it. God is not intimidated by our sins. He is not intimidated by sacrifices. The truth is we are all trapped into our religious mindset.
Let me enumerate some of the friuts of religion...
Again, these are just some of the fruits. If you ever felt this way in your life or you might be feeling this way right now then you are under religion. God didn't create the world to have religion. He didn't create Adam and Eve to have religion. In fact, if we read the creation account we can see that God was showing us what relationship is. God created the animals but He asked Adam to name them and that's what makes Adam the co-laborer in the creation account. God spoke to Adam and Eve anytime of the day in audible voice. And we know that communication is important in every relationship.
Now let me go back to love. God created us because of love. And you know what? He also removed religion which is brought by the law because of love. God's solution for religion is Jesus and motivated by love. Our daddy loves us so much that He allowed Jesus, His Son to die for us, so he can redeem us and completely remove religion in the lives of His people. He doesn't want us to go through all the seven things that I've enumerated above. He wants to redeem us from the death of our sinful nature and move us in the right standing with our daddy. His death on the cross removed all our sins and religion.
If your parents or spouse says they are willing to die for you and then did it to prove it to you, would you say that is radical? Yes, isn't it? That is how radical God's love is for us. His love is crazy that He is wiling to die for us.
The bible says in 1John4:19, "We love, because He first loved us." God started this love relationship. Even when we didn't love Him, or yet, even when we were so unlovable, He loved us. Our response to this love should also be love. Jesus said that loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and loving our neighbor as ourself is the greatest commandment. Is it possible? Jesus responded in Luke 18:27 "The things that are impossible with people, are possible with God." Because the Spirit of the living God is inside of us, we can access His love in us and we can use His love to love Him back and love other people. He made it so easy for us to do it. That's why He said it is only possible with God and not with men.
We can say that Revealed Love Ministry is committed to abide in this love and to spread His love. We want to reveal God's love to the hurting and unlovable world.
We are willing for God to send us to the Philippines or anywhere in the world and spread His love there. Are we fearful? No, because His word says in 1John4:18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear".
Thank you Father God for you have redeemed us with your love.
