The Children Of Leah

The Children Of Leah…

Leah, the unloved wife of Jacob, tried to earn his love by bearing him children. She said, “Now he’ll love me.” Some people think like Leah concerning God.

If we bear enough fruit, if we’re good enough, or do the right thing, then He will love us. Well, that was Leah’s mistake.

You never bear a child so that your husband will love you, you bear a child because your husband does loves you. The child is the fruit of the love.

So with God, you don’t bear God’s fruit so that He will love you. You bear God’s fruit because He does loves you. The fruit of your life; the good works, the love, the joy, the holiness, the self-control, that’s the fruit of God loving you.

We’re not fruitful to make God love us, we can’t. But if God loves us without any reason on our part, then we can bear the fruit of God miraculously. So stop trying to earn the love of God. You are loved. In that love go forth and bear His fruit, the fruit of His love in you.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:3

Today, get into the joy of how much God loves you without any cause or condition – then go in that love and bear the fruit you’ve been called to bear.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
