For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life – John 3:16

Love is the greatest power in the universe and it takes the Holy Spirit to put it in our hearts. The kind of love I’m talking about is not a mother’s love for her children. That’s human love and human love is limited. God’s love is true and boundless, and that’s where the power is.

When people see the love of God demonstrated through you, it has a potent effect on their lives. God saved mankind by demonstrating His love in sending His Son Jesus to die for them. Hitherto, as seen in the Old Testament, He had introduced the Law of Moses, but the people couldn’t keep it.

The love of God transformed a previously furious personality as Saul of Tarsus, into Paul the great Apostle to the Gentiles – one of the greatest apostles ever known. That same love-power is potent enough to transform anybody – be it your aggressive in-laws, your uncooperative brothers or sisters, your nagging boss, etc. Show them love by hearing their voice differently and viewing their actions and motives differently. You’ll be glad you did at the end of the day.

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for giving me a heart that loves at all times. I refuse to hate or be resentful because your love saturates my heart; and by your Spirit, I’m manifesting this love to everyone around me through my words and actions, in Jesus’ Name.
