Love is the most important part of queenly character. So far we’ve covered a solid list of aspects of queenly character. Love is “the greatest of these” (1 Corinthians 13:13). Let’s look at the list from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. (These are restatements based on word studies.)
Love is thorough, and this list judges our love walk. Daily, I know my infractions. I see where I lack love, and can question my willingness to “take the hit” for love’s sake. There are times when I want to dwell on a matter or a time when I was hurt or humiliated, but love is not irritated when injured. There are times when I want to say some things but love dictates silence. [I don’t know about you, but these lessons seemed to be timed about right for my life.] This list helps us measure ourselves, and it helps us understand God’s reach for us. His love is amazing.
Love is the revealer, the light and true strength behind Prudence, Petition, Safety, Judgment, Mercy, Supplication and Willingness.
That’s where we’ll pick up on the line tonight with Reigning in Love. Join us at 8PM Central (218.862.6400, code 6360503).
