It can cast out fear!
But to know love we must first be love.
To be love we must accept the love we didn’t deserve but grace gave it any way.
God gave His only son out of love for us.
The word of God is Gods love letter to us. The greatest command is to love!
So, the question becomes…
Have I accepted the full magnitude of the love that was provided for me?
Have I taken that love deep within?
Am I that love?
To be perfectly honest…No!
Maybe on a good day I can show some of the love thats been given to me. On a good day I can be some what that love to another. On a good day I can take in that love that was given.
Human love is conditional and limited.
Gods love is eternal and limitless.
Well atleast it is within myself. As I can only share from my perspective is that I see my limitations when it comes to receiving love and giving love.
There is all kinds of love that God spoke about (Agape, Phileo, Eros, Sorge,etc) and books have been written about it and to further break down the love demonstrations has even been written on in book the 5 Love Languanges (Yes I have it and have read it).
To be love and show love and receive love I must grow my fruit of love that came in at my salvation.(Galatians 5:22)
To grow the fruit of love is to exercise it. How do I exercise it? Daily we are given opportunity to show, walk or accept love in some way. It is how then when it is continued to be exercised that the perfect love comes in and fear begins to flee.
I still have to work the fruit of love in my life as it is a command to love and to be obedient to that truth is submission to the word and what it has commanded as a life for Christ to be and show in the world we live. His love in us can be a light and salt to the world. It compells and causes those who love is shown to, to be drawn and to thirts appropriatley for the love of God.
