7bears all things, [simple_tooltip content=’1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.

4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;

5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;

6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;

7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.

10 But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.’](1 Corinthians 13:1-13)[/simple_tooltip]

 

Most people have unquestioningly accepted that there are restrictions on how far to go in loving others. It’s like we build a fence and say, “Anything within this boundary I can take, but there are limits to what I can bear. After all, I’m only human!”

It is true that we are humans, and humans have limitations, but it’s not true that we are only human. The born-again part of us is supernatural and full of God’s love, which can bear all things. Look at Jesus. He loved and asked God to for give the very ones who crucified Him. Then Stephen proved any believer could walk in the same love when he forgave those who were stoning him to death. God has given all believers the ability to operate in this type of love. [simple_tooltip content=’And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.’](Eph. 4:32)[/simple_tooltip]

God’s love doesn’t have any limitations as to what it can bear, believe, hope, and endure. Its sustaining power is limitless. Those who say they can’t bear any more are simply revealing that they haven’t yet drawn on God’s supernatural love. They have been loving out of their natural, human love.

I want to encourage you today. There is an infinite supply of God’s love within you that will never fail. All you need to do is look beyond yourself to the Lord and receive His supernatural love. He wants you to walk in His love more than you do.

Don’t listen to your flesh, the devil, or other people who justify having limitations to how far you can love others. Instead, draw on the God-kind of love within you that bears all things. If you let His love flow through you, you’ll have an endless capacity to love others.
