The more I love through Christ, the less I am loved by the world

2 Corinthians 12:15 I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls, even if loving you more and more, I am loved by you less.

Good morning.

Is anyone experiencing less love from others the more you love and follow Jesus the Christ? Are you being spent in the world through Him by His Holy Spirit for other souls? I began my spiritual journey following people who I thought knew and followed Jesus. I was raised in a human-manufactured religious church that was full of human ways and traditions that did not come from Jesus. I can't blame them because I never went to my Heavenly Father nor His Son to see whom I was following. I assumed they were following Christ and they did label themselves as being a Christian church who followed Christ, and they still do, but His Word does not testify it is Him they are following.

If you know any of my spiritual story you know I did not hear the truth about Jesus and His true ways until I was in my forty ninth year. It came through the Holy Spirit from a lady named Beverly and it was at a Christian retreat my sisters church organized. When I heard His Truth through His gospel truth by His Holy Spirit, my life was overcome by His presence in ways I could of never imagined, and the transformation shocked my children and anyone who knew me at the time as much as it did me!

I began speaking and walking through our Heavenly Father and His Son's gospel Truth as They gave it to me through Their Holy Spirit, and Their Word testified all I was receiving came from Them. I knew they were three deities that spoke and worked as One, and I was being transformed into a person I could never see myself being. I was becoming One with our Heavenly Father as the Son is with our Heavenly Father in ways that I could not understand, and it was very overwhelming. The more I loved and shared Their Truth with my family and church members the less they loved me and wanted to be part of my life.

I struggle with letting go of my family because I love them a great deal. I do not like the way they distort the image of Jesus to fit their own. I can't be the person Jesus has created me to be around them. I can't speak His truth without them cutting His words off, and I experience resentment from them.

I pray without ceasing and the Holy Spirit always takes me to His early church to read what His first followers experienced. His Words are planted in my mind and I know they are His. I was experiencing the exact experiences they did through following Christ through His Spirit of Truth. Paul wrote the scripture above to the Corinthian church that gathered together in Corinth because they quit listening to God through Christ and began going their own religious spiritual ways. The more Paul loved the soul of others through the Truth of Christ the less they loved him. Jesus teaches His followers there will be many false teachers and the world hated Him first, and we as His true following disciples will be less loved and sometimes hated. We have no control how others will respond to our Heavenly Father and Son's Truth through His Spirit of Truth.

Jesus got persecuted for telling His truth about Himself and we will too when we speak His Spiritual Truth. When we speak His religious Truth through His Spirit of Truth there will be those who persecute us for talking and walking through His Truth. This can be family members, friends, or strangers. Jesus also teaches us that we cannot be His disciple if we do not love Him above all people, places, and things. If we do not love Him above all people, ourselves first, we will not receive from Him all we need to live in His Holy presence, and experience His Holy Spirit's eternal unity. There will be a spirit's unity, but it will not be unity from His Holy Spirit.

John 15:18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it has hated you. If you were of the world, the world love its own. But because you are not of the world, I chose you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.

Luke 6:22 Blessed are you when men hate you., and when they cut you off, and will reproach you, and will cast our your name as evil, on account of the Son of man- rejoice in that day, and leap for joy; for, behold your reward is much in Heaven!

Luke 14:25 And great crowds came together to Him. And turning He said to them, 26) "If anyone come to Me and does not hate his father, and mother, and wife and children, and brother and sister, and also his own soul too, he cannot be My disciple. 27) And whoever does not bear his cross and does not come after Me, he is not able to be My disciple.

Like Paul and Jesus we do not live to please human souls and spirits, we live to please the eternal Holy Spirit and soul of our Heavenly Father and His Son as One. Their given grace and truth is sufficient and keeps us speaking and walking through His eternal Holy Spirit's presence.

Jesus and Paul was not concerned if our Heavenly Father's Truth offended anyone, to Jesus and His followers it was God's love trying to save them, but to the Corinthians, it was Paul condemning them because Paul did not like the way they distorted the truth of Christ and His image. The more Paul and Jesus loved the human religious crowd, through God's Holy Spirit of Truth, the more they disliked them and cut them off. That still did not stop Jesus or any of His followers from speaking, writing, and walking in God's truth. Jesus and Paul lived to do their Heavenly Father's will whether others loved them or not, they knew their Heavenly Father's did, and His love surpassed all the love this world could offer them. Our Heavenly Father, His Son the Christ, and His Holy Spirit always gave Paul and the other followers of Jesus the mind of Christ to pray for them.
