Abundant Love

Jesus came so that we can have the life of God in an abundant measure - John 10:10. Life as referred to in John 10:10 is from the Greek word 'Zoe' which means the God-kind of life. According to 1 John 4:8, God is love. You can see therefore see that to have the life of God is to have a life of love, you are called to live a life overflowing with love.

What does it mean to live a life overflowing with love? A life overflowing with love is a life that expresses the God-kind of love by default in every situation. It is a life whose love tank is so full that it never runs dry rather it impacts and touches everyone and every situation.

How do you get to a point where you respond to everyone and every situation in love? You see the development of your love walk is a process. You already have the capacity to love like God - Rom 5:5. However you must consciously spend time in God's word and presence to cultivate your capacity to love. Then you must practice walking in love. Then just as a child learns to walk you will grow in your love walk.

Friend as a child of God you are called to a life of love - Rom 13:8. You are called to a life driven by the love of God - 2 Co 5:14. In other words the love of God drives you in very situation and relationship. Have an exceptional day!
