As Christians the most important command we are given is to LOVE.
Firstly, to love God and secondly to love others
Luk 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tempted Him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
Luk 10:26 He said to him, What is written in the Law? How do you read it?
Luk 10:27 And answering, he said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.
Luk 10:28 And He said to him, You have answered right; do this and you shall live.
Love is such a powerful emotion because showing true love is showing God. God created us through love and he also redeemed us because of love:
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Love is never forced but it is always out of choice, that is why no one can be born a Christian, a person is a Christian because of a choice they made to allow Jesus into their heart and change them. Through obedience to the laws, principals and commands of God, this starts a love relationship between a person and God.
This is why if a person can sin and be happy in their sin, that person has to seriously question whether or not they are truly a Christian as Jesus was very clear when he said:
Joh 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
Joh 14:24 He who does not love Me does not keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.
God has given his Holy Spirit to convict sin and cause us to repent when necessary, this is out of true love because God understands that sin pays wages and the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)
When Jesus went to the cross for the whole of man kind, it was love hanging there, this is way whenever a person tries to get to God through any other means other than Jesus, they are denying the very love that God gave them.
Sometimes peoples perceptions of love can be warped and that is why you can have a husband battering his wife and then going back to her telling her he loves her and the woman accepting the beating trying to justify it by saying “ Oh he was stressed and had a hard day, but he really does love me”.
Or it’s like two friends hurling abuse at one another, constantly doing hurtful things to one another but staying they love each other, until the next time something happens!
This idea of love is not God’s idea of love.
The greatest expression of love has been described in 1Corthians 13
1Co 13:1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but I do not have love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
1Co 13:2 And if I have prophecies, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
1Co 13:3 And if I give out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I be burned, but I do not have love, I am not profited anything.
1Co 13:4 Love has patience, is kind; love is not envious; love is not vain, is not puffed up;
1Co 13:5 does not behave indecently, does not pursue its own things, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
1Co 13:6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth.
1Co 13:7 Love quietly covers all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1Co 13:8 Love never fails. But if there are prophecies, they will be caused to cease; if tongues, they shall cease; if knowledge, it will be caused to cease.
1Co 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part;
1Co 13:10 but when the perfect thing comes, then that which is in part will be caused to cease.
1Co 13:11 When I was an infant, I spoke as an infant, I thought as an infant, I reasoned as an infant. But when I became a man, I caused to cease the things of the infant.
1Co 13:12 For now we see through a mirror in dimness, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will fully know even as I also was fully known.
1Co 13:13 And now faith, hope, and love, these three things remain; but the greatest of these is love.
To be a true ambassador for God is to show love, as showing true love is showing GOD!
If love is your true motivation in this business, you are going to grow a very strong business as love is always focused on others.
It was love for humanity that drove Dr Theodore and it is love behind the Reliv mission to Nourish Our World.
As you are contently looking at different ways to help people while doing your business, God is going to open up the doors.
Many people have come into this business saying that they truly want to help people, but when they have had a few bad months or may be not made not as much money as they would have liked for whatever reason, they quit. This shows their true motivates.
In order to truly see the bigger picture with Reliv, a person truly has to plug into all of the elements of the Reliv system because this is how Reliv will move from your head into your heart.
There is a transfer of emotion which happens when a person is truly working their Reliv business correctly and that is why Reliv is such a strong business opportunity.
Because people are getting real results on the products, this is what gives Reliv the longevity and the stability moving forward. This should also give you the confidence to share Reliv with everyone you meet.
Love allows you to deal with the highs and the lows of doing this business, it should also spur you on because you do not know who you are going to meet next, who you can potentially help.
You should not be forcing the product or the business down people’s throats because love would not do that.
You should not be recruiting people into your business and leaving them, because love would not do that.
You should not be getting customers and not following up with them because love would not do that
Knowing what you know about Reliv and how it has and is helping people, you should not hold back from telling it to anyone because love would not do that.
When you have something that has changed your life, Love SHOULD cause you to share it.
