“Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
As Christians we are here to speak about Jesus Christ; if we don’t speak about Him, then we have tendencies to speak about something else and usually we complain. We complain about so many things-the way things are, the way things should be, what we don’t have, what we want to have…so, let’s focus our thoughts on Jesus and speak about Him…the way He is as Lord, how great is He and how wonderful, awesome things He has done for us…how majestic is He in all He does in us and among us. It would be a tragedy if you and I as believers would focus on the earthly things and try to lift them up toward God. What we ought to do is focus on the heavenly things and bring them here as it stands in our divine mandate. Many boast with their love for God, thinking that being part of a tradition or being devoted to its practices, is what it takes to love God; but let me tell you, that “love” will never, ever surpass God’s love for us. He has always loved us and forever will love us with perfect love that is unique and absolute. It stands forever, no matter what. And now, here comes the great part: this love has been poured out in our hearts when the Holy Spirit made His dwelling in us. I have heard so many believers praying:” Lord give me more love!” How can He give more of something He has already poured out completely!?(Romans 5:5) Listen, when He gave His love, He didn’t give fileo or eros…He gave His agape love. It’s perfect and the only thing what you and I can do is grow in the understanding of this love. And the only way we can do this is TO KNOW we have been loved and justified once and for all.
