Love is the secret weapon of Christianity, for our God is love. Love isn’t just an attribute of God; it is the very essence of who He is. When creating, inventing, leading, or championing just causes, love becomes the key ingredient. In the spiritual realm, love takes precedence over wisdom and power. If you study 1 Corinthians 12 and 1 Corinthians 13, you discover that love is the more excellent way, surpassing all other gifts and principles. In the spiritual life, love, wisdom, and power stand as pillars, with love holding the highest place of honor.
Love, specifically the spiritual kind, is the secret behind the greatest achievements in history. Remember that God’s immense love for humanity led to salvation (John 3:16). From a Christian perspective, the highest form of love is to lay down one’s life for others (John 15:13). Love compels individuals to sacrifice sleep, food, and job security for years to pursue ideas and projects that will benefit the world. Effectively laying down their own life for others. The driving force behind mega businesses and global ministries is this superior, spiritual love. When love leads, remarkable feats become possible. Love is the motivation for creativity and exploration of spiritual gifts.
George Washington Carver conveyed profound spiritual wisdom, stating, “Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also – if you love them enough.” Love unlocks the path to understanding and unraveling life’s mysteries. Love begets wisdom, which in turn generates knowledge, the wellspring of power. Embrace love as your guiding force, and no problem will remain unsolvable. Love will bring you wisdom, and powerful spiritual gifts.
