7bears all things, (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)


Most people have unquestioningly accepted that there are restrictions on how far to go in loving others. It’s like we build a fence and say, “Anything within this boundary I can take, but there are limits to what I can bear. After all, I’m only human!”

It is true that we are humans, and humans have limitations, but it’s not true that we are only human. The born-again part of us is supernatural and full of God’s love, which can bear all things. Look at Jesus. He loved and asked God to for give the very ones who crucified Him. Then Stephen proved any believer could walk in the same love when he forgave those who were stoning him to death. God has given all believers the ability to operate in this type of love. (Eph. 4:32)

God’s love doesn’t have any limitations as to what it can bear, believe, hope, and endure. Its sustaining power is limitless. Those who say they can’t bear any more are simply revealing that they haven’t yet drawn on God’s supernatural love. They have been loving out of their natural, human love.

I want to encourage you today. There is an infinite supply of God’s love within you that will never fail. All you need to do is look beyond yourself to the Lord and receive His supernatural love. He wants you to walk in His love more than you do.

Don’t listen to your flesh, the devil, or other people who justify having limitations to how far you can love others. Instead, draw on the God-kind of love within you that bears all things. If you let His love flow through you, you’ll have an endless capacity to love others.
