"God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as
you have helped his people and continue to help them.
10 KEYS THAT WILL ENCOURAGE YOU FROM THIS SCRIPTURE "OUR LABOUR OF LOVE "
1. It is a labour of love , because the love is not always reciprocal .bible says to love our enemies .meaning what ? those that don't even love us , love .Matt 5:44 (Amp) “But I say to you, [a]love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,."
2.It is a labour of love , because in it you will have to learn "forgiveness" .Matt 6:12 (Amp)"And forgive us our [a]debts, as we have forgiven our debtors [letting go of both the wrong and the resentment]."
3.It is a labour of love because most times , you don't even get appreciated for doing it .Jesus wondered in the book of luke 17:17 (Amp)" Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten [of you] cleansed? Where are the [other] nine?."
4.It is a labour of love because in it , you will have to learn what is called "Kindness "hmmm.... . Eph 4:32(Amp )" Be kind and helpful to one another, tender-hearted [compassionate, understanding], forgiving one another [readily and freely], just as God in Christ also forgave you."
5.It is a labour of love because in it you will have to learn how to hold your peace , when your flesh is screaming the opposite . lol..hmm . Jesus said in John 16:33 (Amp)"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]."
6.It is a labour of love because there is no way you will engage in it , without a sacrifice. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice . His life . Eph 5:25(Amp)"Husbands, love your wives [seek the highest good for her and surround her with a caring, unselfish love], just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, ".
7.It is a labour of love because it will require your attention , teaching and giving proper guidance to your fellow brother /sisters in christ .At times you will have to go over it again and again, but don't be discouraged . Remember scripture says in Isaiah 28:10 (Amp) is one step at a time . it can't be done all at once . Amen."“For He says,‘Precept upon precept, precept upon precept,Rule upon rule, rule upon rule,Here a little, there a little."
8.It is a labour of love because your obedience to God's command is required .Deu 28:1(Amp)"Now it shall be, if you diligently listen to and obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all of His commandments which I am commanding you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth."
9.It is a labour of love because it is in it you grow not from the outside. Matt 22:39(Amp)"The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for others].’ "
10.It is a labour of love because that is your ticket to heaven if you are willing to obey .why? It is a fulfillment of all the law and the prophets. Matt 22:40 (Amp)"The whole Law and the [writings of the] Prophets depend on these two commandments.”
Prayer: Father teach me how to love my neighbour like I love myself in the name of Jesus , Amen.
you are blessed !!
