Touched By True Love
True Love heals all wounds, including broken hearts.
So many, like Simon the sorcerer (Acts 8:18-29), seek the power of the Holy Spirit. But the power of the Holy Ghost doesn't come from wanting it or thinking you have the right or authority to wield it.
The Holy Ghost is the supernatural presence of God's divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love and all the power is His, and to be truly righteous, is to be filled with His divine nature of absolute, true love and allow your every thought, word and deed to be governed and dictated by His true love's absolute, majestic virtuousness.
When you stand before Christ for the judgement of your character (as everyone soon will), you will see that He is God's perfect gentleman of absolute, true love.
You won't find a man anywhere, who's more full of true loving kindness and absolute virtue, than the Lord of heaven. He's the epitome of absolute honor, dignity, nobility, truthfulness, faithfulness, compassion, humility, holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, etc., at all times and in every thought, word and deed, He's absolutely humble, gentle and softly spoken, with a kind, encouraging word of eternal wisdom (divine common sense), and is always very joyful and a child-at-heart, with a twinkle in His eye and He hasn't the slightest care in the world or concern for its ways.
If you truly want to be like Him, then don't seek power and seek God's true love and virtuousness, for only when you absolutely surrender to Him, with all your heart, mind, body and soul (absolutely) and allow He who IS absolute love and virtue, to govern and dictate your every thought, word and deed, according to His true love's absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, with absolute humility, equanimity and cooperativeness, without the slightest care in the world, like a little child-at-heart, though far from childish, will your soul truly be set free and will the true presence of God, His Holy Ghost, come upon you, within you and through you, in absolute, supernatural power and glory, beyond the shadow of ANY doubt and your wildest imagination, literally.
Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness (virtuousness), seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the Lord's anger.Zephaniah 2:3
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (virtuousness), and all these things shall be added to you.Matthew 6:33
For they being ignorant of God's (True Love's) righteousness (virtuousness), and seeking to establish their own righteousness (self-righteousness), have not submitted to the righteousness of God (virtuousness of love).Romans 10:3
Virtue of the Week
Perseverance is being steadfast and persistent. You commit to your goals and overcome obstacles, no matter how long it takes. When you persevere, you don't give up...you keep going. Like a strong ship in a storm, you don't become battered or blown off course. You just ride the waves.
And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseveranceRomans 5:3
