Dear Precious Child Of GOD, do you ever wonder, “LORD, how am I to love these people? How am I to love those who would be my enemies, and those who continually use me and persecute me?”
Dear Precious Child Of GOD it is not with our own love which is inherited through Adam and tainted by sin, nor is it by the love of the world which only “loves” as long as it receives “love” and all the things the world and our ‘self’ wants to go with it.
Dear Precious Child Of GOD, we have a much greater LOVE that is Living and Powerful that dwells within us. This LOVE IS The LOVE that never fails. This LOVE IS The LOVE Of GOD. For GOD so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, the Prize of All Heaven, that whosoever believes upon Him should not perish but have Everlasting Life.1 As much as everyone of us deserves death and damnation for our sin, GOD did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, including you and I, but that the world through Him might be saved.2 The world was already condemned by its sin, but Almighty GOD WHO IS LOVE3 Loved us so perfectly that He sent The Way back to Him to rescue whosoever would believe.
When you believed upon the LORD Jesus Christ, that GOD has raised the LORD Jesus Christ from the dead and confessed the LORD Jesus Christ you have chosen to receive the LOVE of GOD, and not only the LOVE of GOD, but the GOD WHO IS LOVE. By the grace of Almighty GOD, the LOVE of GOD is poured forth (shed abroad) into our hearts. This is not our physical heart, but our spiritual heart; our spirit man, the center of our very being.
The LOVE OF GOD is not earned, and cannot be earned by anyone no matter how hard they work or how much “good” they do. The LOVE OF GOD is a free gift that is poured forth into our hearts, into us, by the Gift of Holy Spirit. You see, Precious Child Of God, Holy Spirit is also a Gift given us by Almighty GOD our Heavenly Father because of His Great LOVE for us. This is why LORD Jesus called Holy Spirit The Comforter4. It is Holy Spirit who pours the LOVE Of GOD into us bringing us Holy Comfort in this cold, lost, fallen, sin filled, and dying world.
We should start every day and end every day thanking Holy Spirit for pouring out the LOVE Of GOD into our hearts and into our lives. We should live each day allowing the pouring forth of the LOVE Of GOD within us to overflow the cup of our spirit and continue pouring forth into the life of every person we meet. How else will they come to know that they are created in the Image and Likeness of the GOD WHO IS LOVE5 unless they encounter that LOVE being freely given, freely poured forth, through us?
Dearest Precious Holy Spirit, help me today to yield to the LOVE Of GOD so that I may receive His Holy LOVE and that the cup of my life may overflow with the LOVE Of GOD pouring forth His Holy LOVE into the life of every person I meet today. Holy Spirit, thank You for comforting me with the LOVE Of GOD and for pouring forth the LOVE Of GOD through me today to everyone I meet.
Rom 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (KJV, Bold Emphasis Added)
