A different Kind of love

A different Kind of love

By Thelma Ehigiamusoe


There’s a kind of love nobody knows. 

It is uncommon to the human mind. 

This kind of love is not self-serving or preserving. 

It is utterly selfless.

It puts the next person's needs above yours. 

It is not a love we know without help. 

It is a love God knows and shows. 

What Kind of love is this?

He showed this love when He gave His life for the human race (John3.16). He reconciled us to Himself through His death and resurrection (Colossians 1:20). He ensured we do not need to ‘work’ towards our salvation or prove ourselves to Him to be in His ‘good grace’(Ephesians 2:8-9). He made forgiveness available even before we knew to obey Him (Romans 4:8). He loved us first (1 John 4.19). A love so perfect casts out shame, guilt, fear, condemnation, doubts, and pain(1 John 4.18).

This love, He passed on to His children through His Spirit. It is through this kind of love we realize that self-preservation is self-destruction and decay. Since we bask in this love, it is only (super)natural that our response to Mankind is displaying this kind of love. 

A kind of love God and His family know. 

It is a kind of love that sets captives free and transforms sinners into sons. 

No longer slaves, now children of God, because He is this kind of love, and this kind of love is God. 

It is my kind of love, and it can be yours too. 

All you need to do is accept the life of Christ. 

Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way, Truth, and Life.

There’s a kind of love that God only knows, and it is this kind of love.

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
