2 Thessalonians 3:5 (NKJV)
5 Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
Jesus directs our hearts into the Love of God. Isn’t that awesome! By the way, you can ask Jesus to teach you how to Love God. He will do it and gladly so.
Can we lose the love of God? No, but we can surely cover up the flame. We need to do all we can to hang onto this incredible gift of God.
Titus 3:4-7 (NKJV)
4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
The next time you say, “I love God!”, remember that you had nothing to do with having that love. It is all Jesus.
Once the Love of God appears in you, it is up to you to perfect it
1 John 2:5-6 (NKJV)
5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
The only way to perfect the Love of God in you is to keep His Word. There is no way to keep the Word of God unless you are in the Word of God. You have to take it in like a good meal. Read it, listen to it, take it in.
What is the evidence we are walking in the Love of God?
