The Force of Love for Europe today

Love is a force. It is not mere words, emotions and ideas. Love forces its way through problems of our soul to create new platforms of joy, harmony and hope. That is what the young generations of Europe are yearning for!

The Force of Love for Europe todayAs we convey the gospel in Europe today, we need to have a reality check: What are we really presenting? What are people perceiving and receiving from us?

Sometimes we are so preoccupied with our ideas, doctrines, strategies, methods, spiritual warfare, prophecies, apostolic development etc. that we lose touch with what Jesus Himself was full of: LOVE!

"For God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son...."

Jesus´ message and method was first and foremost LOVE. He got it from His own Father!

He brought LOVE to the people of the world: To sinners, the sick, the dying, the possessed, the poor, the rich.... He gave them a new platform to live on, a new foundation for life!

And He told the disciples: "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35).

Europe needs today a revolution of LOVE. It comes from God! And who else should be the first to live it and give it than the Church of Jesus Christ!

The young generations of Europe yearn for a touch of the LOVE-FORCE that removes the pain, the shame, the rejection, the inferiority complexes, and the hopelessness, and replaces it with a new platform of joy, peace, future and hope!
