The No. 1 Need in the Church Today

The No. 1 Need in the Church Today by Bert Farias for Charisma News

“[That you] may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and depth and height, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18-19).

Do we even know what that means?

To love everyone we look at. To be filled with all the fullness of God. That is the width and length and depth and height of Christ’s great love. There are no limits to it.

To love everyone you look at! Imagine that! Saints. Sinners. Good guys. Bad guys. People who do you right. People who do you wrong. Friends. Enemies. Relatives, oh those relatives. They’ll work love into you almost as much as the Holy Ghost!

Oh, this love is so grand! It has no boundaries except what the flesh and carnal mind give it.

To be long-suffering. To not be envious or jealous. To want more for others than you want for yourself. To not be proud, haughty or rude. To not seek your own things, but the things that belong to Jesus Christ. Never to consider a suffered wrong. Never to be offended or rejoice in iniquity. To bear all things, believe all things, hope all things and endure all things. To always be kind and rejoice in the truth (1 Cor. 13). To do for others what you would want them to do for yourself. To say about others what you would want them to say about you. And to always forgive.

For many years I did not pay enough attention to love. Selfishness ruled my heart. But often, the Lord has to break us down and deal with our self-centeredness over and over again. It’s the curse of the entire human race. It’s the curse in the church. It gives birth to every kind of strife and carnality. Sadly, most believers in Christ remain in this carnal state for most of their lives.

The number one need in the church today is to renew our minds to the love of God. Most are ruled by feelings. They live by their feelings. They follow their feelings.
