How To Transfer Loves Today!

Posted by – 10/12/2011

Rise Above BookJust as God programmed you to love something—and you will automatically love something—God has programmed you to be able to transfer lovers today. Don’t ever worry that you will not be able to accomplish this transfer. You don’t have to work on loving—you were born to love, like a bird was born to fly in the air. Look at how much of your mind and soul you have given to food—you are a good lover; you are familiar with intimacy. Likewise, you don’t have to work on being able to transfer your devotion—you were born with the ability to transfer your devotion. Your only job description will be to concentrate on this hour-by-hour choice of adoration—this focus of adoration. And God is the right choice.

Remember, we fall in love with what we focus on. That’s how we got into Egypt to start with, and that’s how we’re going to get out today. And as I’ve said before, that’s how your children fall in love with cartoon action figures, rock stars, or sports figures. It’s how a hero is birthed in your heart.

You Were Born To Love

You were born to love, you were born to worship, you were born to serve, but you cannot love, worship, and serve two things at one time. It’s impossible. Even if you want to, you cannot. God ingeniously programmed both of these unique phenomena of the human heart: you were born to love (in fact, you are loving something even as you read this), but you cannot love two things at one time. Don’t listen to that lie of Satan.

The Warning

Rise Above Book

Jesus warns us again and again to be on our guard against those who tickle our ears. Jesus said, And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell (Mark 9:47). This is a tough but clear calling to sell everything and invest in this kingdom and holy priesthood.

So the warning is to the religious, to the churchgoers, to God’s people, to be careful not to surround yourself with teachings that use the blood of Christ to allow you to have two lovers. Jesus’ blood was never intended to leave you in Egypt. It was never intended to be used to bring Egypt into the desert, either, which is what we have done to God’s church. If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:36). First John 5 tells us: This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world (vv. 3–4a). The blood and life of Christ are not only for the forgiveness of past sins and stumbling sins, but the power to help you get out of continual sins.
