Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Born and Raised In Love”
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”
Love Himself, is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Love is behind everything He does and everything He says. We were Born in Love and we are Raised in Love.
This is the Guiding Principle of our personal relationship with our Commander. He birthed us in Love and He raises us in Love.
Speaking from Heaven Love declares: “I am the Lord your God,” your Creator Who puts My breath in you, (Gen.2:7), and holds your breath in My hand (Job 12:10). Our Commander declares “I am your Source of Life and I am your Liberator!” I brought you out of the ‘land’ of sin and the ‘house’ of bondage. Our Commander Liberated us from the bondage of sin and makes us free, because we know this Truth (John 8:32).
Now, Love Raises us with rules, His Ten Commandments, our General Orders.
With this understanding we look through the lense of God’s Love at His Ten Commandments and in the first four commandments we see our duty to Him as ‘our First and only True Love’ (Rev.2:4) This is the First part of our Mission: “Love God Supremely,” and reject all substitutes and counterfeits!
The remaining six commandments present us with our duty to our fellow man. This is the Second part of our Mission: Love Others Equally, as God loves them.”
This is our Mission, my fellow Warrior! Doing this outwardly ‘for appearance only’ is wicked hypocrisy and unacceptable. It’s like ‘using our tool’ of works to build an altar for Him (v.25). This is a disgraceful offense to our Commander and King.
We are Raised in Love to reflect and imitate Love. The way children imitate their parents - we imitate the Love of Our Commander.(Eph.5:1-2)
Everything our Commander does and says comes from Perfect Love - so too, must everything we do and say come from godly Love. (Col.3:17,23). Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
