THE LOVE WALK
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. I Corinthians 13:1,2
After my salvation experience, I was baptized in the Holy Spirit at a revival and eventually spoke in tongues which I still do, and it is a valid gift for the church to have. I have seen miracles, the sick healed and even the dead raised in my journey, but I also understand that one's love can grow cold.
Many churches, although wanting to be like Jesus, isolate themselves and focus on the gifts of the Spirit, signs, wonders and the working of miracles but don't ever leave the building. Like little children they are excited about the gifts they have been given but forget why they were given! Jesus spent most of His ministry out among the poor, the needy and the sick, healing them and delivering them from demons and He taught His disciples what the agape love of God was all about!
Today however the churches have been so steeped in tradition and doctrine that they have forgotten their first love and have fallen into a spiritual coma, unaware of the needs of the world outside their doors who need the gospel of Jesus Christ to be saved. Jesus commissioned His church to GO! He told them that signs would follow them and that He would be with them!
And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Mark 16:20
