The Place Of The Holy Spirit In Facilitating The Love Of God In Christians
by Ngozi Nwoke
11/13/2012 / Christian Living
Have you ever wondered how you can access the love of God? Christian believers need to possess and walk in God's love for them to enjoy the blessings of God. It therefore becomes necessary that a Christian believer engages the help of the Holy Spirit, who is the distributor and facilitator of the Lord's perfect love, in order to access and enjoy its benefits.
Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us - Romans 5:5 (NKJV)
But the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you - John 14:26 (AMP)
The Holy Spirit distributes the love of God into the hearts of Christian believers. At new birth, every Christian believer possesses the love of Christ by the help of the Holy Spirit. And the power to walk in love is released at this time. In other words, as a believer you have the God-given ability to walk in God's love within you.
The Spirit of God also facilitates the love of God through you. He helps you to show love to people. It is not by your might or by your power but by the help of Holy Spirit. Unconditional love is impossible without His help. He is the one who empowers you to love the unlovable and to make unthinkable sacrifices for others.
God is love and has commanded Christian believers to walk in love, for this is the way by which people will know that you are His disciple. He went ahead to send the Comforter to help every Christian believer to live this perfect love. And God does not command us to do the impossible.
The Spirit of God will teach you to walk in the love of Christ every step of the way if you will yield to Him: your cooperation is highly required. The Holy Spirit will not force you to walk in the steps of God. But when you surrender to His leading, you will discover that walking in love is actually an easy task from God.
Therefore, next time, you are faced with difficulty in exercising the love of God engage the help of the Holy Spirit. As a Christian believer, you already have God's love poured into you and with the help of the Spirit of God you can live the perfect love no matter the circumstances.
