Too Hot To Handle!

Reading from the Book of I Peter 4:8
I Peter 4:8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.

First peter 4:8 teaches us to have "intense and unfailing love for one another." We are to have "fervent love" for one another. The verb form of the Greek word that is translated fervent means "to be hot, to boil". Our love walk needs to be hot, on fire, and boiling over. Not tepid, cold, or barely noticeable.

Let your love be red-hot. Let it be fervent toward God and toward other people, and as you do, you will not only live in obedience to the Word, you will also be too hot and on fire with God's love for the enemy to handle.

I want the love of God in my heart to be so red-hot that Satan dreads to see me get out of bed in the morning! 
If we are hot enough with love, Satan cannot stay around us for long. We might say we will be "too hot to handle."
