Love is the overriding asset for everyone because it is the trait that most characterizes God. Because of God’s love, it motivated Him to create us, to provide for us. Because love is central to His character, love must be central to ours as well. “He abides in love abides in God, and God in him” 1 John 4:16.
The ingredients of love are a package, not a list whereby we can choose the most appealing to us. Love comes from God. If we do not know God then we don’t know love. When the love of God is demonstrated through us, it blesses and enriches our lives; it in turn blesses the people around us immeasurably. When we love those who don’t show love for us it is priceless. Love is the greatest of the spiritual gifts because it underlines, guides, and also informs us, in all that we wish to accomplish.
To experience the Love of God we must desire it. It is an experience is one of great joy, because we experience it at first hand. When we experience the love of God we treat other with kindness and compassion. To experience the love of God we must have a one on one relationship with Him. It’s just like your kids or your spouse the more time you spend with them, the more you love them. By experiencing His love you will trust in God to provide that of your daily needs. When you have experience the love of God you can’t help but share it with others. To experience the love of God we must allow the Spirit of God to take control, don’t deny His love but accept it, for God loves you just the way that you are.
God demonstrated the greatest love ever to us, by giving is only Begotten Son to die for us. So experiencing God’s love is to put the needs of others before our own, for love is selfless, it has no boundaries. Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own; is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity but rejoices in truth. Love never fails. Love bears all things, believes in all things and hopes for all things.
