CONNECT TO PEOPLE – HAVING GOD’S HEART OF LOVE FOR PEOPLE

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. – Ephesians 5:2 NLT

“The gospel is really easy. You just love the person in front of you.” – Heidi Baker

 

The Lord said to me in preparing for this fast, “JUST BE IN LOVE WITH ME. Whatever that means at that moment, you will know. Just be in love with Me.”
We don’t have to DO anything except BE in love with Him every moment. Whatever action comes out of being in love will become clear in that moment for you.
When you want MORE of Him, when you want ALL of Him, it will cause you to be so desperately in love, so “lovesick” in love with Him that there is no room for anything else. No fear, no doubt, no unworthiness, no confusion – all of that has been swallowed up in desire for Him. And now all you have left is to be totally, boldly, tenderly, sweetly, wholly consumed by Him.
Out of that great relationship, your life will have more capacity to give out more love, because you care about what He cares about. You will see that when you go beyond just loving God into releasing His love for people, that is what is important. You will find that your heart begins to expand to hold others closer. You will love them because He loves them.
All of a sudden you will see people differently. You will see through eyes that see past what they appear to be like at the present, and into the potential designed just for them, by God Himself.
You will be aware of His presence and the passion He has for people, and you will be moved to make a connection with them. When you begin to pray for people, or talk to them, or meet with them, they will begin to stay inside your heart. Because now you have made a spirit-to-spirit connection.
And you will really see them – all of hurting humanity, the way He does. Their faces will be burned into the back of your eyelids. And for the sake of love, and for heaven’s sake, you will rescue them and tell them the truth of how He loves them. And God will bring the increase!
The key to living a life of love consistently, with acts of kindness and compassion that come naturally, is to connect with God, and then connect to people on purpose.
This goes beyond natural emotions and enables you to release all He is into every person or situation.
Pray for an increase of love in our lives.
  • Father God, I want to love You much more every moment. Lord Jesus, I want to love You much more every moment. Holy Spirit, I want to love You much more every moment.
  • Lord God, I want to love others the way Christ loves-unconditionally laying down my life, to love and serve them the way You want me to.
  • Give me opportunities Lord, and open my eyes to see others as You do, and to connect to them in the spirit and in the natural.
We all have a choice. Only you can decide how much you will love. Only you can decide how great is your love. No one else can increase or decrease your love for Him and others.
But we are fasting for change, and this is our time!
This is their time!
Change is here!
Here is an amazing video that will touch your heart and move your love into action. Just love Him more and let that love flow out of you with His heart for every person.
