If we are "IN CHRIST," our "LOVE" is as of GOD'S! "Unconditional!"
Do you recall the "Prodigal Son?" The wayward son left fulfilling his desires as the father "WAITED" patiently for his return! So it is with GOD for HE desires "no one is lost!" Although, we leave GOD fulfilling our desires, HE patiently "AWAITS" our return, protecting us during all of our "ignorance!" Now that is "LOVE!"
As GOD has set the example for "TRUE LOVE," we (flesh) should follow in HIS FOOTSTEPS! Although we see others as the "Prodigal Son," we should "pray" and "wait" PATIENTLY for their return to GOD doing as HE has "commanded" of us! HE "commanded" that we "Teach ALL nations," "REBUKE" those who have gone wayward and "not suffer sin upon them" (Leviticus 19:17)! Now that is "LOVE!"
As we would tell our children "The Fire is Hot," if we "LOVE" our neighbor," we would tell him what the WORD of GOD says in order to receive "Salvation" for "The Fire is Hot!"
You know, I know you'll probably say "Oh GOD, here she goes again," but "LOVE" comes "naturally" for those "IN CHRIST JESUS!" I don't know about others, but I see ALL as souls! Those who speak evil of me, I don't see them as hateful people, but a soul who has allowed a demonic spirit enter and really don't know how to control it or believe it exists. Ephesians 6:12 says "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Remember a demonic spirit even entered Peter when he rebuked the WORD of GOD. Afterwards, JESUS told Peter "Get thee behind me Satan!" It was not Peter, but a demonic spirit that temporarily possessed Peter because prior to JESUS telling Peter to "Get thee behind me Satan" JESUS told Peter in Matthew 16:15-19 "...upon this Rock I will build my church...!" Therefore, every soul can be tempted of Satan but the Holy Spirit discerns such and we should remind the soul he rebukes the WORD of GOD! Now that is "LOVE!"
GOD, I "LOVE" everyone and only the Holy Spirit is the reason why; not the natural love man "thinks" is love but with the "LOVE" of GOD which is "Unconditional!"
