You Put This Love In My Heart!

Lately, as I've been contemplating the love of God, I've thought about the impact it has on us in that it is not only supposed to flow into us but through us and out of us, spilling out into the world around us. 7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.

8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.

10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.

12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

:eek: Am I expressing the love of God in my life? Am I a reflection of the love God has for all of humanity?
In all honesty... I am not able to do this... BUT if Christ dwells within me then it stands to reason that CHRIST within me is able to let HIS love break through, transforming me and... those around me. :dance:

This is a sober reminder to me that if God is love and He dwells within me, then HIS love must also be within my heart. If it is not... I need to fall at His feet, open up my heart and receive His love; filling me up so that I may pour it out upon those around me.

Back in 1977, singer/songwriter, the late Keith Green wrote these words: I found it hard to believe
Someone like you cared for me
You put this love in my heart
I tried but could not refuse
You gave me no time to choose
You put this love in my heart

I want to know where the bad feelings go
When I'm depressed and I get down so low
And then I see you coming to me and it's alright

I want to tell you right now
I'm not afraid to say how
You put this love in my heart
There are sometimes when I doubt
But you always find me out
You put this love in my heart

Cause when I see all that you've done for me
It's hard to doubt, I just have to believe
Cause you followed and proved it all of your life

Well I know
the loneliness I had before
Is gone now
I'll never feel it anymore
Cause your love has released me
From all that's in my past
And I know I can believe you
When you say I'll never be forsaken
Your love is gonna last

There's so much more I should say
If I could just find a way
You put this love in my heart
Is all this real or a dream
I feel so good I could scream
You put this love in my heart

I want to know where the bad feelings go
When I'm depressed and I get down so low
And then I see you coming to me and it's alright
You put this love in my heart
You put this love in my heart
You put this love in my heart

He puts this love in our heart! :dance:

Blessings! :heart:
