If on this Monday morning, Jesus examined you and me as He did Peter in John 21:15-17, how would it be? Let's humble ourselves before Him. Let's confess how cool and casual we too often have been in our expression of love to Him. Let's ask the Holy Spirit to fill us to overflowing with love for Jesus. Paul tells us it is the Holy Spirit who pours such love into our hearts. Let's hear the word of God.
"....because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." Romans 5:5b
"Lord, it is my chief complaint
That my love is weak and faint,
Yet I love Thee, and adore;
Oh, for grace to love thee more!"
"And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love ........." 1 Thessalonians 3:12a
However, if you are one that has never accepted the love of God, please do that today. Repent, ask for forgiveness, and receive Him into your life. You will never be happier, and you can begin growing in your love for Christ.
God bless you, have a great start to a great week, and never forget that you are loved!!!
