Beloved, hear the Word of the Lord for you.
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” I Peter 4:8 (NKJV)
In this passage, Peter quotes Proverbs 10:12, “but love covers all sins.” Beloved, I bless you to know the fervent Love of God for you. I bless you to be transformed by His Love for you. I bless you to know the depth of His Love for you that atones for your multitude of sins. God’s Love doesn’t just cover your sins, but Jesus stood in your place as your equal to cleanse your sins. Because of His Love for you, I bless you with fervent Love for others. I bless you with the ability to Love in order to cover the sins of others.
Beloved, I bless you with a change in your outlook so that every time others sin, you choose to love them purposefully in order to cover their sins. I bless you with wisdom to know that the difference of Love covering another’s sins is not the same as ignoring the sin. Covering another’s sins does not eliminate the need to confront wrong when necessary, and by no means is it to enable others.
Beloved, I encourage you to look to the Father for instruction to Love fervently so that you can cover all the sins of others. I bless you to know how this can be accomplished in your life to extend to those in your sphere of influence. I bless you to learn how to cover the sins of others wisely in order to bring each one into the plans and purposes the Lord has for them. Beloved, I bless your love for others to be powerful, effective and fervent to cover a multitude of sins in others. I bless you in Jesus’ name.
