The Treasure of Love

Wednesday, 13 February

Colossians 2:2-3: I want them to be strengthened and joined together with love and to have the full confidence that comes from understanding. I want them to know completely the secret truth that God has made known. That truth is Christ himself. In him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are kept safe.

Love is an easy word to say, but a difficult one, sometimes, to live out. You see, love isn’t just a noun, a thing that you have or don’t have. It’s a verb, a doing word. Love is something we’re meant to do.

I have to confess that I’m a bit of a geek. I love studying and writing – sick, I know, but that’s me. So when I encountered Jesus, the first thing I thought was that the way you “succeed” in God’s Kingdom is to learn as much as you can, to read and study and so that’s what I set about doing.

Now I don’t regret any of that, but it didn’t take me long to discover that that wasn’t the point of what Jesus wanted to do in my life. So what is the point?

Colossians 2:2-3 I want them to be strengthened and joined together with love and to have the full confidence that comes from understanding. I want them to know completely the secret truth that God has made known. That truth is Christ himself. In him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are kept safe.

The whole point of God sending His Son to this earth is, love. I mean you and I can be as clever and as gifted and as brilliant as we like, but without love it doesn’t mean anything.

Love costs. Love hurts. That’s the point.

Look, wisdom is important. In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. But to have full confidence in those, to really lay hold of those, to really grow in an understanding of what Jesus is all about, we need to be strengthened and joined together in love. That’s the point. Love.

There’s someone out there in your life right now, who needs that love. How about it?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
]1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
