A SECRET FOLLOWER / Joseph Of Arimathea

This is the third of five devotions and music videos 
with the theme
"Our Love For God"

A SECRET FOLLOWER
by Rebecca Cooley
(Adapted from John 19:38; Isaiah 53:9)

I was a secret follower of the Messiah.  As a member of the Sanhedrin, I thought I could not afford to express my beliefs in this Man.  As soon as I heard the news of His death, I knew I must do something to show my respect and to honor Him.  I wanted to somehow relay to Him that I believed.  What could I do?  All at once I knew.  I will give Him my own tomb that I had prepared for myself!  As soon as that thought came into my mind, it is as if I could hear His voice say, “Because You have prepared a place of burial for Me, I have taken away your spiritual place of burial.  You are one of mine.”  I ran as fast as I could and asked to see Pilate.  I begged him for the body.  I think he gave me permission to take it because he didn’t know what else to do.  Now I know, it was a fulfillment of Scripture. 

He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone.  But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave.

Lord, I am not a secret follower.  I gladly choose You now!  I want to tell everyone I believe You are the Messiah, the Anointed One, the One who is and the One who is to come, the King of all eternity!

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA

(Adapted from John 19:38; Isaiah 53:9)
Verse 1
I heard Him say, “It is finished”
I heard Him say, “Into Your hands I commit My spirit”
Then He bowed His head and gave up His spirit
Bridge
One by one everyone has gone
And here I stand alone, captivated by His life
I am overwhelmed with a desire to express what His life meant to me
Chorus
I am Joseph (repeat 2)
I am Joseph of Arimathea
Verse 2
Never a man spake like this Man
He stretched out His hand to the blind, to the deaf
He cleansed the leper

2 LOVES / I Had Strayed

This is the 2nd of 5 devotions with the theme 
“Our Love For God"


2 LOVES
by
Rebecca Cooley

(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13;6; 2 Peter 3:9)

“The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conceptions of slowness, but he is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.”

Some people think that God is waiting to punish us for every sin and is actually watching to zap us with wrath when we do. That is so far from the truth that it is enemy territory. God does not punish us. Sin punishes us. God wants us to turn from sin so it will not consume us and lead us to eternal punishment. He is extraordinarily patient in working with us to lead us to him.
There are two loves that bring me back to repentance every day, his love for me and my love for him. These two loves rule my heart and bring me back to Him.


Father, I love you and I love your Word. I love Your people and I love lost humanity. You loved me first and since the day I realized Your great love for me, I have never fallen out of love with You.

I HAD STRAYED
(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:6; 2 Peter 3:9)
Verse
I had strayed but my love for you
I had strayed but my love for your word
I had strayed but my love for your people
I had strayed but my love for lost humanity
Chorus
Brought me back to this place of repentance
Brought me back to you
Brought me back to this place of repentance
Your love for me and my love for you

FOUNDATION OF LOVE / I Adore Thee

This is the first of five devotions and music videos
with the theme 
"Our Love For God"

FOUNDATION OF LOVE
by
Rebecca Cooley

(1 John 5:21)

The foundation of the love walk is the love command.  We are instructed to love the Lord our God with our whole heart and our whole mind.  Why would I want to place anyone or anything else in the highest place in my heart?  That place belongs to God and I have to position Him there every day.  I must choose to not allow anything to occupy the place in my heart due to God. 

There is a second part to the love command.  I am to love others.  Loving others is easy when I love God with my whole heart.  When God occupies my heart and my thoughts, love and kindness overflow to others.  There is no effort to love others.  The effort to love lies in not allowing anything to occupy the highest place for God. 

Father, I place you in the highest place in my life.  I give you my heart.  That means that I put you in my heart and my thoughts and I move out anything that is unlike you.  Loving others will come from that foundation.  I love you and I love my neighbor.  Thank you for the instruction of your word and for helping me to align my life with love’s principles.

I ADORE THEE
Devotion:  Foundation of Love
 (1 John 5:21)

Verse 1
Father You have chosen me as a vessel of praise eternally
I will ever stand in awe at the wonder of Thy glory
In Thy thrown room I worship Thee for this sacred honour You’ve given me to go beyond the vail
Oh what a privilege to pray
Chorus
I adore Thee, I adore Thee, I adore Thee
Lord I glorify Thy name
Verse 2
Falling in worship before Thee in paradise the saints adore Thee
Casting golden crowns before His majesty, the King of kings
Jesus I long to be there so my soul ascends in fervent prayer in to celestial realms
Where with the angels now I sing

LOVE IN THE HIGHEST DEGREE / ANewCommandment



This is the 4th of 4 devotions with the theme
"Love Is Our Highest Priority"




LOVE IN THE HIGHEST DEGREE

Song: A New Commandment
(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:13; John 13:1-35)

The book of John records the love walk of Jesus, the Messiah. As John records the last supper, he begins by focusing on the greatness of the love that Jesus had for His disciples. He described better than any other apostle, the full extent of God’s love for mankind.

“He loved them to the last and to the highest degree.”

Love was expressed through humility as the Savior washed His disciple’s feet. As Jesus continued the tradition of the Seder meal, He took the bread and broke it and He took the cup and drank from it. As He shared the bread and the cup with these men, He was revealing to them, for the first time, that He alone was the fulfillment of this yearly tradition of the Passover. His very words pierced their hearts to the highest degree of love ever shown.

“This is my body broken for you.”
This is the blood of the New Testament
shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

In the next few days, as He gave His life as a ransom for the sins of the world, He loved the entire world with the very highest degree of love also.

Father, thank you that Your love has not changed down through the ages. You love me with the same degree of love that you displayed to the disciples at that last Seder meal. You had me on Your mind when You were on the cross. Your flesh was broken and your blood was shed for me. I receive Your love. I receive everything You have for me. Pierce my heart with love. Give me a revelation of this divine love that will live through eternity.

THE DECISION TO LOVE / Reduce Me To Love

This is the 3rd of 4 devotions and songs
with the theme

"Love Is Our Highest Priority"


(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:13; John 13:34)

“Just as I have loved you, 
so you too should love one another.
This is the way that all men 
will know that you are my disciples,
if you love one another.

There are two things that I have got to get right as a believer. The first is to love God with everything that is inside of me, and second, to love people.Everything else hinges on these two things – faith, hope, all of the fruit of the Spirit, deliverance, prosperity, healing – all of these things must have the foundation of love in order to manifest in the life of a believer.

Love is not a feeling. Love is a decision. Love is a decision I make to put God first place in my life. And love is a decision I make moment by moment to treat people the way that Jesus would treat them.

Love will always cost us something. Walking in love requires personal sacrifice. Each time we choose to love someone, it will involve time, money or effort on our part. As I make an effort to walk in love and concentrate on making love top priority in my life, my own selfishness will be exposed.Walking in love is a process that requires a decision and a development that takes time and effort.

Father, Reduce me to love today. I make room in my heart and in my day for You, it is my heart’s desire to walk in love. Your presence makes me want to love people. I fully intend to create an atmosphere around me that will be inviting to people to want to get to know You.

REDUCE ME TO LOVE
Devotion: The Decision to Love
(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:13; John 13:34)
Verse:
Complicated as we can be, complicated,
Lord change everything about me
Remind me to love You Lord with all my heart

Reduce me to love
Reduce me to love
That I may love with the same love
Whereby You have loved me, reduce me
Bridge:
More of You and less of me
Lord, this is how it’s got to be
Consuming fire of Your love
Burn up everything that is unlike Thee

THE ROD OF LOVE /TheLawOfLove



This is the 2nd of 4 devotions with the theme
Love Is Our Highest Priority

THE ROD OF LOVE
by Rebecca Cooley
(Matthew 22:38-40; 1Corinthians 13:13)
Picture in your mind a huge, very long curtain rod. Written across the rod is the word, LOVE. Now picture shades pulled down with words written on the shades. You pull down a shade and see the word, PEACE. Another shade reveals the word, JOY; another PROSPERITY; another HEALING and another DELIVERANCE. You pull down hundreds of shades with words that you are sure are inside the will of the Father. Each shade hangs on the rod of LOVE. Love connects all of the things that are written on the shades to God. Every one of them hangs on the rod of love. If the shade does not hang on the rod of love, it is useless.
Father, I want to appropriate the nature of Your Son and be like Him. I want to develop Your love in my life. I want to practice love and pull from the rod of love for the things I need and the things I see that other people need and expect them to manifest. I want to see Your goodness and Your glory in my life. You are love. Your commandment of love is my foundation and the rod that connects your promises to my life.
Child, my greatest and most important commandment is to love Me with all your heart and soul. I am the root of love. Love me with your intellect and your emotions, with everything inside of you and then put that love into practice by loving people. These two commandments sum up every prophecy. All the law and the prophets hang on the law of love.


LAW OF LOVE
Devotion: The Rod of Love
(Matthew 22:38-40; 1 Corinthians 13:13)
Verse
Teacher. Which commandment is the greatest,
The most important?
Some commandments are light,
Which commandments are heavy?
Jesus answered
Chorus
Love the Lord your God with all your heart
With all your mind
With all your might
With all your strength
Love your neighbor even as yourself
Every good and perfect gift
Every law, every prophecy
Hangs on the law of love

LOVE IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY / WalkAndLiveInLove

This is the first of 5 devotions and music videos 
with the theme
Love Is Our Highest Priority

-


LOVE IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY
by Rebecca Cooley

(Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13:13; Galatians 5:14-16; Lev 19:18)
“So faith, hope, love abide . . . . but the greatest of these is love –
the true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us.”
“You shall love your neighbor as you do yourself.”
I so want to keep these commandments of God. I want to make these commandments my highest priority because I want to please my Creator whom I am in love with and show Him the highest respect and honor. And as I make these commandments first place in my life, I open doors of blessings that no enemy can stop.
The way that God’s love operates through me to affect those around me, hinges on these truths. When I walk in love toward another person, I am placing value on their life. When I do this, I create an atmosphere around me of the presence of God. I don’t have to be concerned about what I am going to do to change the world or make a difference in my community. I don’t have to pray for hours for God to change a situation. As I walk in these two commandments, God walks with me and the atmosphere around me becomes full of His presence and He does the work. He walks through the doors of love that I create.
Father, thank you for the revelation of your greatest commandment. I choose to give you a place in my heart and in my life to work and move on the behalf of others. I will create an atmosphere of Your divine presence around me today by walking in love toward others.


WALK AND LIVE IN LOVE
Devotion: Love Is Our Highest Priority
(1 Corinthians 13:13; Galatians 5:14-16; Lev 19:18)
Verse:
The whole Law concerning human relationships is complied in the one precept,
You shall love your neighbor as you do yourself.
Verse 2:
The whole Law concerning human relationships is complied in this one precept,
But if you bite and devour one another in partisan strife,
Be careful that you and your whole fellowship are not consumed by one another.
Chorus:
But I say walk and live responsive and controlled and guided by the Spirit
But I say walk and live , walk and live, walk and live in love
