Experience the Outpouring of God's Love

God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

 

Romans 5:1-8 Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,  and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person — though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die — but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

This is more than just knowing God loves us. The Holy Spirit, who Romans 8:9 says is in every believer, shows us the acts of Jesus and allows us to experience God's love. 2 Thessalonians 3:5 says “May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ,” so this love of God is something that we are led to and can experience more and more. I pray that you today are filled with the love of God, so much so that you can't help but spill some on everyone you meet!
