You can read all the Bible you want, but if it doesn't come to life by the Spirit, it's not going to do anything! You can quote it word for word right out of the Bible, but if you don't live it in love, it doesn't do any good. You can have all the gifts of the Spirit, but without love it is meaningless! You can be tops in your field, but if you don't manifest His Love to others, then it's all in vain!--Because love is the most important thing! (See 1Cor.13!)
Faithfulness in your work is very important, to endure it as a good soldier and to work hard, but if you don't have love, you don't have anything! If you don't have love and show love for others--especially those in the Lord's Service who are close to you, your neighbours, then in the Lord's eyes the good works don't really count!
What's the thing that proves we are the Lord's disciples?--Love! Jesus said, "By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love for each other." (Jn.13:35) "This is My commandment," He said, "that ye love one another as I have loved you." (Jn.15:12) He ordered us, His disciples, to love one another! So love!--Amen?
