When you choose to love as God loves, you know God and His love. As your capacity to love others is expanded, you begin to understand the greatness of His love for you. As you pour out, you experience a greater pouring in. Make this the way you live. Live and operate out of love. When you imitate Him, you are moving in God, and God in and through you.
Abide literally means to dwell, remain, stay, continue. Abide as used by the Lord means to live out of, to draw life from, to live because of, through, by. This means we need to live like a favored son or daughter. Living out of the sense of sonship. Living out of our identity as His son or daughter. Making no apology for living as His son or daughter! Walking every day knowing that we are loved by the Father in an immeasurable and unconditional way.
Perfect love comes from only One Source - God. Experiencing perfect love liberates us. Perfect love banishes all fear (1 John 4:18). It sets us free from every sense of guilt, shame and condemnation. We are holy and without blame covered by His love
Some of us have grown up in homes where we have never really experienced parental love or the love of a father. We may even have had good parents, but never experienced the love of parents.
This picture can cause you to take a wrong posture from understanding our Heavenly Father's true picture.
When I am in rebellion, God still loves me.
When I am covered with filth and drowned in sin, He still loves me.
When I am broken, wasted and ruined, He still loves me.
When I am at my worst, He still loves me.
The Love of The Father is beyond measure, and it is revealed to us in His Son Jesus Christ.
