Colossians 3 vs
14》 “But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. ~”》》NKJV》
SHALOM greetings to you, Cherished one. All glory and honour unto Papa God for giving us a new month full of favour, grace, protection, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. We were admonished yesterday to consciously walk in love as a garment we are wearing. Today, we are looking at the reason why we should be clothed in love and walk in it as a New Creation. In our focal text, the Apostle explained that love is the bond of perfection. Yes, love is a bond. A bond refers to something which binds together. Love is like a joint/ligament that ties or connects people together.
That’s why God so loved sinners before they could join Him or have a relationship with him (John 3:16;1 Corinthians 6:17). Love is that bond which ties or glues people together. He continues to unveil that love is a bond of perfection. Perfection here implies completeness. Thus, perfection is that which is full of completeness and nothing wanting. Perfection also implies coming to full age or maturity. Beloved, the measure of your completeness is measured by the love expression towards God and mankind. Love is truly a bond of completeness; it ties everything together in unity.
Therefore the sacred scriptures say faith functions by love (Galatians 5:6). Holiness works on the wheels of love. *Let whatever you do for God and your neighbour be motivated by love because love is the bond that ties everything in unity.* The Message Translations put our focal text this way ” And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.” Love is the unit of life. Express love in your deeds, motives, thoughts, and words. For this is the inseparable bond of completeness. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Precious Lovely Father, I thank You for Your unfeigned love. I thank You for teaching me love and how to love. I am empowered by Your Spirit to walk in the bond of completeness and maturity in Jesus Lovely Name. Amen!
◇ Enjoy A Complete Thursday◇
I Pray that God’s Spirit is empowering me to walk in love with the bond of completeness and maturity.
