Love is not love his action. It is an action word. It does still love packs in the best interest of its object also about his love.

You have in your heart and never expresses itself in any way that blesses my life. It's our greatest gift. It makes the world go round conquers all of us talk about love on today's destined for victory with pastor Paul Sheppard, Hollywood me tell you that love is a feeling two people can write a wave of emotion to the shores of happily ever after, but until those feelings become a conscious decision until we make a choice to love someone no matter where the winds of emotion may take us then it isn't love at all today. Pastor Paul Sheppard explains the importance of building godly relationships on a foundation of love, which means a foundation of action stay right here or listen on demand. Pastor that's Pastor right now.

Here's pastor called today's destined for victory message built to last you all member charge on the right. He said that love itself by covering all over each other. Send me see you all. Love sees you act inappropriately sees you outside of God's purpose in some area of your life. Now, that sin does not choose to expose what it can cover now. Make sure you understand what Peter is not safe to say that love covers up. Love covers over meaning is not for you to shame, love's goal is for you to be restored redemptive only do in a case like this is so if I am in embarrassment and shame will keep others from gawking at me clear out the crowd and then will minister to me at the point of my me. You see what I'm saying. Love covers over if someone is there an embarrassing situation. The first thing let's cover over let's get a blanket level then look at our body standing around all the passersby loves and I'll move. That's what Jesus did with the woman caught in the peak over said he didn't cover it up and drag her out there in the first place to drag this woman out say we call her in the act of adultery question is what we don't know when looking at the wheel, looking in the window shade. All devil's visit is all claim to have caught her in the dream they only bring one by somebody my man back in the evening going on you all be in the Bible says that the covering over sin, so that he can truly deal with the issue of her heart and the people who may not know good so he writes in the dirt after saying whoever is without sin going to start don't have a stone in our long as you don't have anything in your life going get started. Meanwhile, he wrote in the dirt and whatever he wrote cleared all amount and by the time he cleared them out. Now he's ready to deal with the heart of the issue without shame. The goal is not to shame her goal was to lift her and so Jesus is where your accusers. She said no one accuses me now. And Jesus said neither do I condemn you neither do I condemn you. That makes the nervous Jesus. She would contact you don't condemn because Jesus told us in John 317 I come into the world to condemn the world, I came into the world that the world might be saved.

You said call MCM no more see when love covers is not covering up all my people, and you will get you when you're not God's plan for your life.

Now you go and sin no more.

God is showing you how much he loves you by not allowing you to be stoned.

This message a few times over.

Some people have none will still make it covered so glad love covers over here like this is something you are and that he ministers to the point about me and Peter said if you really love one another cover over a multitude of sins.

When a person speaks disrespectful of you pushes a button based on the way they said something always confront, confront, and if you can't get feeling sooner or later you're going confront so that you can get it straight, but growing to love the place where we speak so insensitively always have to be always have to send me email when you made me feel so grown enough to cover some things like sound, but I love them so I'm confident will make a big deal about your life. Just a sign that something is not even worth a conversation. Love the cover that somebody love the cover disrespectful. I wish you had said that she would not you can cover that money in your pocket at the counter and got this covered all don't have a good day love something like time to confront and bother you. 3578 going to have a conversation you know when you said that it really hurt me.

But you want to live your life with major stuff where you pick your battles don't make everything a battle in the body of Christ will make everything about you and your ministry teams as you got to go, attitude, love the cover shot covering will be right back with more of today's destined for victory message from Pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California. Listen to this program any time on that's Pastor or subscribe to the podcast and I heart Google podcast or wherever you go to get your programs with apologies to Tina Turner. Love is not a secondhand emotion.

True love is not an emotion at all is pastor Paul was arrested, today's destined for victory message built to last 13 love is patient and always impatient with me, love is kind. Don't tell me you love me and you always begin disrespectfully. Not every tell me you love me and you get mad every time God blesses me love does not boast, love is not proud. Love is not rude. Love is not self-seeking.

Love is not easily angered when it's appropriate to get angry but not every day. Call somebody everyday people around your baby day me to calibrate your life a little better than this. Where you don't get ticked off every single time. Something happened that way, not easily angered. Love doesn't keep a record of wrongs. Keep a record of wrongs not to make some of the spell out on the altar right there. My space right before God and God save me all got a record book in know how many function memory memory.

I'm talking about holding because once you are doubly dealt with something and you have truly forgiven from your heart goes away the memory of it remains the way it is okay to be a fence down the line would not bring out on somebody… No that was forgiven that was covered body keep a record of wrongs away with the truth. It always protects, always trust always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails so right relationships in the body of Christ.

When we got to walk and one walk in love with their concept of building block is covenant.

Covenant what do I mean by that covenant is a solid agreement binding contract certified by an old Bible times and first Samuel 18 three since Jonathan made a with David because he loved him as himself. We don't enter into covenants when it comes to interpersonal relationships with the exception of marriage marriage. We typically only be married to somebody to enter into a covenant with the company was an expression of a binding commitment to you. This is what you can expect from me what you can count on from me covenant while we don't enter into actual legal covenants outside of marriage these days what comes in a personal relationship suggesting we should make a commitment to not have a legal covenant of agreement between ourselves agreement I mean by that. If you want to truly relationships God brings into your life.

Be clear with people about what they can expect from you and be clear with them what you did your them. One of the problems we suffer with relationships in the body of Christ. Understanding, you cannot expect me what I don't know is being expected and you can expect from me signed off all in the past.

You can count on that from you, but there holding you, agreement, contract, and is only one signature somebody binding agreement between two parties. All I expect you to treat me a certain way and you layout and make it clear now put the paper in front of me, so to speak. All right, I agree with you on that for me. Now we have a working understanding. But we suffer in our relationship from of understanding that have to be a meeting of the minds in order for there to be a contract meeting of the working understanding here in the body of Christ.

A lot of times of clarity. We don't know what we can expect from one another and you need to make that play that God has brought you want a ministry team into and relationship with the body of Christ together brought you into a relationship that's moving toward meeting of the minds with people in print and counseling, marriage is made up of nothing but great day Monday and stuff will bring in the bank. We can you count on from me and you have walking understanding because love has got to resolve itself into promises into agreements into understanding so that people know what they can count on one from another. That's the only way it works any other way.

There must be a meeting of the mine, that the people in your life deserve clarity don't be one of the if I knew what I did I wouldn't be asking you see somebody offended with you when you go to find out why you know I promise you I don't know what you know.

Okay sorry I don't want to help me out like it. Understanding people walking through the relations of the hard work that hard work is not God's will. God is not ordaining disposable relationships with God bring somebody in your life you got together you can get where God is taking you work it out years ago.

Mrs. Ruth Graham was asked by an interviewer that Ms. Graham, have you ever considered divorcing Billy and she said I can honestly tell you I have never in all the years we've been married I've never considered divorcing Billy. I have considered killing him. I made the decision to limit where in this together.

You may relationship it because there will be those days where you feel like I can't take it. But you got to find you've got to talk. You gotta say, here's where I am.

Here is why. Here's what I'm thinking. Here's what I'm feeling. It takes vulnerability and ability works against your pride your pride.

That's why got independence and ended up in your product that you messed up situation doors see how your pride keeps you in a civil court splitting up stuff get that chair since we were together when we bought the ball sit in the chair, but it takes takes work, takes a meeting of the minds takes understanding takes working it through okay now explained to me that okay now help me understand when you did this, what was that about walking it through and we have to do that in all of the relationships God brings into our meeting of the mine.

The Bible says these men entered into covenant with each other. There was a solid agreement and understanding of what they can expect one from another, godly relationships are built on the foundation of oneness of love. We live in a world of contracts that can be easily broken. But God has a better way. His love is rooted in a covenant not a contract. It's a covenant he never breaks one from which nothing can separate us, not even our own mistakes. Let's strive to love one another. That same way.
