God has shown us His love; He has demonstrated it and He has clearly laid out His expectations of us. (I Corinthians 13:4-8, Colossians 3:12-17) So how do we practically walk in love? I believe this is a continual learning process…
I love how God models this for us and shows us HOW to love. Through the whole Bible we see a demonstration of God’s love in action. Jesus showed us how to love, He lived it, He demonstrated it, He was passionate about it, it required something from Him.
God has opened up and revealed His love to me in such a large measure these past few months. He has birthed an even greater love for others, and my heart has been enlarged for the care of others. My cry has been to accurately reveal and display His heart. Having a heart of compassion for others like the Father has for us.
I remember when I was growing up, my dad would give us an instruction, and we would not understand the importance of that instruction until everything went awry.
Moving passed an offence or hurt is a difficult process sometimes and depending upon how close that person is to us often determines how deep the hurt goes.
