How to grow in God’s Love
No matter where you are in your relationship with the Lord, you have room to grow in God’s love. Here are a few important points to consider as you let your roots go down deep in the greatest love the world has ever known.
- Simple head knowledge of God’s love will not bring transformation. Only intimate experience of His love will do that.
- To comprehend means to “lay hold of to make one’s own. To appropriate and take into one’s own self”. This is what Father wants, that we take His love as our own.
- Jesus illustrated what love looks like through His sacrifice.
- We are to follow His example. It is through the laying down of our own lives that we experience His love in greater measures. We must make room for the Love of God to occupy our hearts.
“Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”
Mark 8:34-36 NLT
