Without Love, We are nothing

Most of us as professed believers, dishonestly live our lives without the love of God. Most of us who profess to believe even lie about our love to God. Some of us are so theologically educated, that we just know the right answers without it honestly coming from the heart. This is the problem relative to those who are intellectually converted into the faith.

Intellectual conversion is the modification of behaviour according to a theological view on God’s word. Only having a form of godliness without God’s love. Where one can be seen as an upstanding, moral ethical person in society, as well as an individual who belongs to a community of like minded people. But are duplicitous, hypocritical, unempathetic and emotionally detached.

True conversion is a change of heart by the love of God. Having new thoughts, impulses and desires according to God’s love. The heart is then filled with His love, and solicits our love in response to His. Loving Him because of His love for us from the heart. Therefore, proving without God who is love, we are nothing.

“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, and have not charity, I am nothing. ” 1 Corinthians 13:2
