Topic: Be Filled With Love [Sunday, 19th Feb. 2017]
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge… Ephesians 3:19
One of the pastors I admire so much sang a song with these lyrics “Let the world see Jesus in your eyes, show them love they can’t deny, let the world see Jesus in your eyes, Jesus in your eyes.” This is a very inspiring song. But you see, as much as we want the world to see the love of Jesus in our eyes, we can’t actually give what we don’t have. At new birth, you received the love of Jesus in your Spirit, but not yet in your heart, which is where your actions flows from. For the world to see the love of Jesus in your eyes, you need to get that love in your heart.
Scripture says “for we know how dearly God loves us, and we feel this warm love everywhere within us because God has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love” (Romans 5:5 TLB). It is the Holy Spirit that fills our hearts with God’s love. And until we get to be more intimate with the Holy Spirit, we won’t get to know the depth, height, breadth and length of the love of God, which passes human understanding (Ephesian 3:18).
We can only know the love of God, that the Holy Spirit brings to us, through fellowship with Him. When we fellowship in prayers, spiritual songs, hymns and with His Word, He pours His love into us. When we do this, we are filled with His love and that is when we can be able to show the world what the love of God is. What do we need to do now? Let’s put more intent, purpose, and passion into our fellowship with God’s Spirit. He really wants to pour out God’s love into our heart so we can share it with the world.
Keep winning daily.
