Fragrance of Love

“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine” Songs of Sol 1:2

Cheer up beloved, it’s a new dawn already! Your long night of weeping is over, you can now step into your day of rejoicing because the fragrant love of the Father has searched you out today.

Our God gave us a perfect example of love in letting go of His only Son for an ungrateful people without any condition. Even on the Cross, the Son still offered heartfelt prayers for His assailants. Little wonder the aroma of His unfailing love has pervaded the entire universe as He continues to beckon to as many who are thirsty and hungry to come drink and eat till everyone is satisfied. Can anyone really resist this kind of love?

Love gives no conditions, you love others with no strings attached, you love the unlovable and forgive the unforgivable. Offence will surely come but you don’t take it because you forgive in advance. You don’t love people because they deserve to be loved, you love them because you are designed to love

Love doesn’t talk down on people, it speaks pleasant uplifting words, recognizing that the power of life and death lies in the tongue. King Solomon, in His God-given wisdom shared in Proverbs 16:24 that pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Love is so potent: the fragrance of Love conquers the repulsive stench of hate.

To sum up, I have no doubt whatsoever that most, if not all of the problems that plague humanity today can be laid to eternal rest on the altar of love. Love can soften the most hardened of criminals, the soothing balm of love is able to calm frayed nerves. Only love can tell you to apologize even when you are not at fault.
Yes, love is so sweet all the bitterness in this world cannot neutralize it. I love you.

The Perfect Sacrifice 2

Previously, I showed us that love was the Father’s motive for giving up His only begotten Son to harvest more sons into His kingdom upon whom He can lavish His profound love. So we are now the objects of God’s love…this is simply mind-blowing! You see our Father does not love us because we deserve it, He loves us because love is His very nature, His very essence. 1 John 4:8 says God is Love. I have good news for you. In Jesus who is the ultimate gift of the Father, you have access to everything else you could ever desire – a good job, a blissful home, healing, financial prosperity, victory over the enemy, protection and so on. Without a doubt, the greatest miracle of all time is the miracle of salvation. How a one-time serial killer and persecutor of the church suddenly became a brand new man without a past simply by believing and confessing the Lordship of Jesus (not his sins for how many could he confess) Rom 10:9-10. Wow! What a miracle!!! I’m referring to Paul who later professed that he had wronged no man (2 Cor 7:2). Really? The blood of Jesus had ‘formatted’ his past.

Now, let us zero in on the Father’s provision for our healing and health. Surprisingly, a lot of people have the faith to get saved but not to get healed. But Jesus was beaten and chastised for our healing (1Pet 2:24, Is 53:5, Matt 8:17). In the perfect work of redemption, he bought us back from sin and all its consequences including sicknesses. Beloved, receive your healing today because Jesus paid for it. The same faith that got you saved can get you healed. God desires above all things that you prosper and live in health (3John1:2). Do not be deceived or short-changed.
Stay tuned for more and God bless you. Love you.
