Meditate On His Love

Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; and the  greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13 GNB).

Mark Chapter 5 tells the story of a certain woman who  suffered haemorrhage for twelve long years,but was made whole by Jesus. Her audacity  of faith must have come  from what she heard about Jesus: that He radiated,manifested, and expressed the love of the Father. She must have  heard how Jesus restored sight to the blind, raised the dead, made the lame to walk, and even restored maimed limbs. She must have been inspired to hear how He spoke loving  words to the hurting, the rejected, downtrodden, and broken-hearted.She was therefore convinced that Jesus wouldn’t reject her  if she came to Him. Thus, she pressed through the crowd at  the risk of her life to get to Him. Remember, the Law forbade  her to have physical contact with others; she’d have been  stoned to death if discovered, for daring to appear in public  in her condition. But she had heard that the Master touched  and healed lepers: outcasts that were ostracised by society. This most certainly lifted her spirit and rekindled hope within  her that she could be well again.In the account rendered in the Book of Matthew 9:21,
the Message translation says, “She was thinking to herself, ‘If I  can just put a finger on his robe, I’ll get well….” Notice that it  started with a thought. She thought  she wouldn’t even need Him  to notice her; she could as well tap into that  love-power.She did, and she was healed instantly.What are your thoughts about the Master? Do you consciously  meditate on how much He loves you? Everything Jesus  is and represents is love. His miracles that we read about in the Bible were all love-inspired. His communication and  actions pointed everyone to the Father’s love. He was the revelation  of God’s love. He said in John 15:9 (MSG), “I’ve loved  you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at  home in my love.” He’s saying, “Meditate on my love; stay and  be at rest therein!” His unrivalled and unconditional love for  you should provoke in you such audacity of faith always.

PRAYER

Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for
showing me the true nature of
the Father, which is Love. I
meditate, embrace, and take
advantage of His love today,
which in turn is expressed in and
through me to everyone in my
world; your love in me
continually compels me to reach
out to heal and bless others
around me. Amen.
