Love Breaks

I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. John 15:9

You most probably have taken breaks before; lunch breaks, coffee breaks, and definitely toilet breaks. So do you take time out for spiritual love breaks?

What’s a spiritual love break? Well, like the natural, it’s an ‘overflow’ of thankfulness, knowing God is with us; and God is for us. The Holy Spirit impressing in us on the goodness of God, His righteousness – Christ’s finished work done for us. The sense we never deserved any of such grace but inherited as children of the Most High, nevertheless, because of the Lord’s love. A inner strength to know that we are never alone and troubles are never to big to handle because we have a big God. And obviously, we should just pause from everything we are doing; just let this overflow fill and assure our beings and enjoy – the love break.

We can even do this on a regular basis taking time to enjoy and feed on the love of Jesus our Good Shepherd. Set a time of the day where we can have a time of devotion to feed on God’s Word and His love for us; not that God needs them but in fact, it is us that needs to do this. Contrary to popular believes, our daily devotional time is not for God’s benefit (God is not narcissistic who demands worship – although He deserves them) but we do this for our own benefit; to build ourselves up.

When we can see how big the cross is, how much Jesus Christ had done – His sacrifice on the cross; then any big concerns we may have – are no concern, actually. Cannot explain it better than in Romans 8:

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Romans 8:31-39

If we are able to remain fixed in God’s Word and His promises, then whatever our circumstances, we will all rise to be champions. The world is getting darker, but despite all these and even against immense odds, overwhelming victory is ours to take! Because through Christ, who loved us; no matter how – we still win!
