AN INEXHAUSTIBLE RESERVOIR
You have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren.
1 PETER 1:22
As Christians we have a great responsibility to love others, but how do we fulfill it? By understanding our resource.
Love is available to us, and it’s our fault if we don’t tap the necessary resource. We are to submit to the Spirit and learn how to love. We must purify our hearts by confessing our sin and realize the urgency of attracting others to Christ through our love. We are to make a conscious choice to love others, fellowship with other believers, and concentrate on others rather than ourselves. And we must consider the effect of loving others. Love given is inevitably returned.
When God saved you, He made you a new creation with the capacity to fulfill the debt of love. The reservoir of love is inexhaustible. You have the privilege of representing God in the world by loving others as He loved them and receiving love in return.
