Selflessness

Dear Ones, I am thinking today of the need for all of you to strive for the highest level of unity and love for one another. I am coming soon, and the very atmosphere of heaven can be with you even now if you allow my Spirit to bring you into complete harmony with each other and me. Remember how the people said of my followers after Pentecost, “See how they love one another!” So it should be with you. If any of you have differences or hard feelings against each other, please invite me to come in and give you insights into the heart of the other person which will help you to empathize with them and share their burdens. If it is in a family or marriage relationship, I can help you to love one another as I love you, and get along perfectly, even as my Father and I and the angels in heaven love one another and harmonize perfectly together. Now for the topic of the day. It is selflessness. This character quality is impossible for the fallen human nature to produce, because selfishness is the essence of sin. But I want to bequeath this character quality to you as my Bride, because in order to know and become like me, you must have my same nature of selflessness and unselfish interest and care for each other. It is such an enjoyable and happy way to live, because selfishness brings misery, and the desire to be first and waited upon and admired and served can never really be accomplished, because other human beings have the same desire, and therefore cannot give it to others for very long, because the carnal nature demands attention and flattery from others. But when you have my Spirit of unselfish love, you forget about yourself, and spend your energy making others happy and meeting their needs, and in turn you receive back the love and appreciation of those you help. Of course, this is not always the case, because there are always rude and unthankful people. But even this should not discourage you, because you have the satisfaction of knowing that you have done your best to be a blessing, and in return, you will be a recipient of my love for you, for you are walking beside me as you minister to others. Now go to the activities of the day, but keep in mind that when you serve others unselfishly, you open up your heart to receive my blessings of love in double measure—one measure of love to give to others, and one measure of blessings to flow back to you! Lovingly, Jesus.
