Jude 21 - Keep yourselves in the love of God, receiving the mercy of our
Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Above all other things, staying saturated with the love of God must be our
aim. The love of God is poured into us by the Holy Spirit, and dominates
our lives as we yield to Him (John 17:26; Romans 5:5; Galatians 5:22). Love
was modeled for us by Jesus, our Savior, when He laid down His life for us.
Living in this love is God's command (John 15:12,17; 1 John 3:23, 5:2-3).
Walking in love is how all men will know we are His disciples, and that He
lives in us (John 13:34-35; Luke 6:35; 1 John 4:7-8; 1 Peter 1:22).
Dwelling in love should be our delight, as it is the place where we dwell
in God (1 John 4:16). Knowing this love is the key to the greater-works
ministry; because in it, we are filled with all the fullness of God (John
14:12-15; Ephesians 3:19, 4:16; Colossians 2:2). Being directed by love in
our behavior and conduct is being directed by the Holy Spirit, Who desires
to lead us and to guide us in this wonderful essence of God --Who is love!

If you will set your heart on the love of God and give yourself to it, then
you will find that the Holy Spirit will fill you to overflowing. Many have
set out on long fasts and given themselves to great efforts of prayer that
they might touch the deeper realms of the glory of God. All of this is
good; but we will always be brought back to the question of love. Will we
love God? Will we love those that love us? Will we love the brethren? Will
we love our enemies? Devote yourselves, today, to being rooted and grounded
in love. Surrender fully to knowing the deeper realms and the higher
heights of the fullness of God, by giving yourself to the knowledge of the
love of Christ (Ephesians 3:17-21). I believe that on that day of
accountability, we will be brought into question on how well we loved (1
John 2:5, 3:11,14, 3:16, 4:17; and Ephesians 1:3-4). Let us all love well
from this day forward!
