Call to Action

5.1 PLEDGING TO LOVE 

The love pledge is a creed to live by, and it will help us remember to love always and unconditionally. What we think, meditate on, and speak usually manifests in our lives. The scripture in Proverbs 23:7 (AMPC), “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he,” and in the following scripture, we are encouraged to declare what we believe and it would become a reality:

“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you, and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways. (Job 22:28 AMPC)”

With this divine understanding, I encourage “you” to take this pledge, the love pledge, and share “it” with your family, friends, contacts, colleagues, and teams to do the same. When we start doing this and spread the love lifestyle by sharing the love pledge, we would end up having loving people around us always. Let us remember that:

“what we sow (share, give or encourage others to do), is what we shall reap (get back, rewarded with or blessed with)” (Galatians 6:7 AMPC)”

 

5.2 TAKE “THE LOVE PLEDGE” 

I, (insert your name here ……………………………….), pledge to love like my Father God. Today, I will love everyone and everything God created and loves. So help me Holy Spirit. 

 

5.3 SHARE THE LOVE 

It is time to practice what we believe and preach. Please, share this book with someone as a gift of love, but if you cannot do this, at least share the love pledge (above) with someone today. There is someone in your family or a friend in your circle that would be truly blessed by this daily creed. If you are a leader of an organization, especially a church or if you have a ministry, you would be baffled by how this pledge will change your congregation to a truly love-based and heaven-bound family. If you are too introverted to share with anyone, you can share on your social media handles or WhatsApp status or groups.

“It is the hard-working farmer [who labors to produce] who must be the first partaker of the fruits. Think over these things I am saying [understand them and grasp their application], for the Lord will grant you full insight and understanding in everything. (2 Timothy 2:6–7 AMPC)”

 

 5.4 SPEAK OUT FOR LOVE— TRUE LOVE MOVEMENT (TLM) 

This is the easiest part. Let us also be willing and ready to speak out for love. This entails telling people that God is love and, if they want true love, they need God! It is also an opportunity to promote this God kind of love, the perfect love, over any other form of love or whatever the world wants to flaunt around as love. If it did not originate from God, then it is not true love. With this new lifestyle, people around you would be forced to ask you how you do it; please do not be too humble to miss the opportunity to tell and teach them about this true love movement (TLM). Tell them about how you have decided to love like God and encourage them to do the same.

 

APPENDIX 1 

Renew Your Mind to Love

You cannot live and love like God if you do not know Him as your father. From the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden, our minds became depraved until Jesus came; and by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary, our minds have been renewed and we are reconciled to God our Father. If you have not accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, your mind is not yet renewed.

To renew your mind, you can believe, declare, and confess the following:

“Jesus, I know and accept that your sacrifice on the cross was for me. Please forgive my sins and accept me into your kingdom. I believe and confess You as my Savior and Lord”

 

APPENDIX 2 

Identify with a Love Tribe 

Now that you are born again and renewing your mind daily by the Word of God, it is time for you to continue your faith walk by identifying and settling in a God-ordained and Bible-believing church around your neighborhood. There are so many of them all over your city and nation, but if you need a recommendation, you should pray and ask the Holy Spirit to direct you accordingly.
