Clarity and Connections Through Love

Colossians 2:1-5 (ESV

2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments.5 For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ.

*What's amazing about these verses is how God is telling us that in order to advance, be blessed, and receive we must begin with love. Love opens the heart and mind in order to understand what God is trying to show you, you receive the wisdom to handle each situation, and also properly know how to find and take care of His blessings. Love is the main tool that starts the preparation process, leading you to His promises and wisdom to understand what He is trying to show you.  It also keeps you connected to His people by enhancing your connection with God, despite the fact that He is not physically present. Your connection with Him depicts how connected you will be to His people. However, He is always connected in spirit when you love and seek His wisdom. Even without love, He waits patiently on us to obtain it in order to feel His love. May we work on our love walk to unlock the door for many other avenues and blessings...
