Super-Abundant Grace (1 Timothy 1:14)

And the grace (unmerited favor and blessing) of our Lord [actually] flowed out superabundantly and beyond measure for me, accompanied by faith and love that are [to be realized] in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:14 (AMP)

When we receive a revelation of God’s grace as His unmerited favor and blessing being made available to us, our faith increases as a result as we come to recognize and embrace His love for us. Rather than performing to try to get God to bless us, we find ourselves resting in His love and in His finished works. And out from this place do we move ever more fully towards the manifestation of His promises.

Look To Jesus (1 John 3:23)

And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment.

1 John 3:23 (NKJV)

God’s commandment under the new covenant of grace is for us to simply believe on Jesus. Placing our faith in His finished work enables us to walk in love. We are equipped to love others to the degree that we receive His perfect love for us. The more we look to Jesus and less to ourselves, the more will we walk in everything He has made available to us!

The Gift Of His Love (Romans 5:5)

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 5:5 (KJV)

The love of God has been deposited in our hearts through the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of us. This means that as born again believers we have been gifted with the ability to love even the unlovable, and to extend grace rather than condemnation. Yet in order for us to do so we must first fully receive into our hearts God’s love for us. When we realize just how much He loves us—even to the point of sending His Son to die on a cross for us—we cannot help but extend His love to others!

Overflowing With His Goodness (Ephesians 3:19)

And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Ephesians 3:19 (KJV)

Being filled with all the fullness of God is to know His love in and through Christ Jesus. This surpasses intellectual knowledge and must be known in the heart. When it sinks into our hearts just how much He loves us, our lives cannot help but overflow with His goodness.

Taught Of God To Love (1 Thessalonians 4:9)

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.

Overflowing With His Goodness (Ephesians 3:19)

And to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Ephesians 3:19 (KJV)

Being filled with all the fullness of God is to know His love in and through Christ Jesus. This surpasses intellectual knowledge and must be known in the heart. When it sinks into our hearts just how much He loves us, our lives cannot help but overflow with His goodness.

The Spirit Of God In Us (Romans 8:15)

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Romans 8:15 (KJV)

It is the Spirit of God in our spirit that draws us unto God, that enables us to fellowship with Him. And so let us approach Him as He truly is: our loving heavenly Father whose good pleasure it is to give us the kingdom. May we give up any fear or feelings of condemnation, and not doubt for one second that it is God’s will for us to be whole in every area of our lives.

Taught Of God To Love (1 Thessalonians 4:9)

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV)

God indwelling us by His Holy Spirit compels us to want to love one another. As we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit who is at work in us, we will find ourselves being led more fully into living a life of love, kindness and compassion as we receive God’s love for us in Christ.

Walk Boldly The Journey Of Faith (1 Chronicles 28:20)

Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

1 Chronicles 28:20 (KJV)

God’s will for us is to continuously grow in our walk with Him, and to step more fully into all He is calling us to do and be. In this the Spirit of the Lord is with us, in us, and always ready to work through us. So as the Word says, let us not fear nor be dismayed; and let us walk out boldly this journey of faith.

Holy And Blameless Before Him In Love (Ephesians 1:4)

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Ephesians 1:4 (KJV)

In Christ we are holy and blameless before the Father in love, not because of our actions or performance, but as a result of having been made the sons and daughters of God. Now it is God’s love that compels us and enables us to live right. Chains are broken and darkness loses its grip over us, as guilt and condemnation are replaced with the goodness and mercy of God.
