Delightfully loved ones, if he loved us with such tremendous love, then “loving one another” should be our way of life! No one has ever gazed upon the fullness of God’s splendor. But if we love one another, God makes his permanent home in us, and we make our permanent home in him, and his love is brought to its full expression in us. 1 John 4:11-12
According to dictionary.com, that word delight means a high degree of pleasure or enjoyment; joy; rapture. Did you know that He takes pleasure in you? Psalm 149:4 says that the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation.
How can we not be love to others if Love lives in us? It’s all about overflowing onto others that which has overflowed onto us. If we are spending time in His presence, His presence will overflow. Do you get it?
We are His permanent residence. When He leaves, we’re going with Him! To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord but His presence is in us to overflow. It doesn’t matter how you feel, you’re overflowing. It doesn’t matter what you see, you’re overflowing. What matters most is what He says.
His love is brought to its full expression in us. It must free flow for others to be recipients of that love. If it’s stopped up with the cares of this world and the deception that the things of this world will satisfy us, we won’t ever be free to love. It can be stopped up by unforgiveness or bitterness, whatever is standing in the way of the manifested presence of God from flowing through us, repent of it quickly because time is short, Jesus is coming soon and we MUST be about our Fathers business.
Let’s be aware of His love toward us today. Don’t hoard it, because freely you’ve received, freely you must give. Don’t allow your vision to be so shortsighted with what you see in the natural causes you miss the opportunity to be a living expression of His love.
