God’s Provision of Love

July 12, 2013

“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” - Romans 5:5 

In ourselves, we do not have the kind of love the Lord commands.  But God never commands us to do anything without enabling us to do it.

How does God enable us to love with AGAPE love?  He gives us the indwelling Holy Spirit.  The same Spirit that dwells in the Father and in the Lord Jesus now dwells in us.  This AGAPE love, which is in God’s heart flows to us and through us, and to others by the power of the Holy Spirit.

God’s love flows through us to others as we yield ourselves to Him to be channels of His love.  We can say to someone, “I love you because God has placed within me His wonderful love for you.”

This AGAPE love is so powerful that it can enable us to love even our enemies.
