Good Morning Precious One!
We were created for intimacy with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is our highest call in all of life! It is from this place of intimacy that we go out to seek and save the lost. It is not the other way around. Our ultimate destinies are not to build large churches or ministries, but our ultimate destiny is to know His Love with all of our heart! “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you…” John 17:3.
It is the first and greatest commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-38. Above all things, the Father wants us to go deep into His Love. He wants us to know how wide and deep and long and high is His Love that surpasses all knowledge and as we know the depths of His Love we are filled to the full measure of God.
We were created for His Love and so His Love will flow through us experientially with great power! The Father is always pouring His Love into our heart through the Holy Spirit. So, therefore we know His Love deeply and powerfully! His Love is in the Spirit realm, so we have to become spiritually minded to know His Love! Holy Spirit is the One who speaks and reveals His Love into the depths of our heart!
Holy Spirit is the revealer of all Truth. He is our teacher, counselor and the Lover of our soul! He releases the substance of the Father’s Love into the depths of our heart! We just need to turn our heart more and more closely to Him!
Love is a fruit of the Spirit. Love comes from God. “We Love because He first Loved us.” 1 John 4:19. This is divine and supernatural Love. Yes, humans have some ability to love, but ultimately, all love comes from the Father! So to Love more, we need to receive more. We keep our hearts open to the constant flow of His Love into our heart by the Holy Spirit. The more we turn the affections of our heart to His Love and behold His glorious Love, we are being transformed the likeness of Christ, who is Love!
Even if we have been horrible at loving people our whole life, we can start turning and opening our heart to the Father’s flow of Love into us, and His Love will transform us into the likeness of Christ! It doesn’t have horrible our past was, we can all be transformed into Christ’s Love by setting the affections of heart on Him! As we set our hearts and minds on things above, the heavenly realities, we are setting our heart and opening our heart to His Love because above all things, the kingdom of heaven and the Father’s heart is Love!!!!
Even when life around us may be painful, even extremely painful, the Father’s Love is always being poured into our heart by the Holy Spirit. The more we set our heart on His Love, the greater degree we will manifest and be transformed by His Love! There may be hatred, jealousy… coming at us from other people, but no matter what is coming against, no matter how powerful it may be, we can ALWAYS turn our heart to the outpouring of the Father’s Love!
“No, in all these things we are More Than Conquerors through Him who Loves us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all of creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39.
