Baptism of Love

With Valentine's Day coming next week, one of the greatest Scriptures to ponder in the Gospels is when Jesus was asked by a lawyer which is the greatest commandment.

Mat 22:35 Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying,
Mat 22:36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?
Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Mat 22:39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

What a powerful word! I've found out if I get the first one right, the second on comes easy!

When you fall in love with Jesus, He makes it easy to love your neighbor as yourself!

I believe in there is a baptism in and with the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance; I also believe there is a baptism of fire that comes from the Holy Spirit that is evidenced in a life that is passionately sold out to Jesus and to the Gospel!

But in this season of difficulty and uncertainty, may He give us a fresh baptism of love! Because love covers a multitude of sins!

I will be in Guyana South America next week ministering to the Amerindians. Pray for a mighty harvest as well as Holy Spirit encouragement to be released!
