Good morning.

What do we do when it feels like we are running out of love? Often life will demand more than what we have to offer. This is particularly true when it comes to love. Sometimes it just seems too hard!

There are those who we find it easier to love, especially those who love us back . But this love shortage even applies to them; they do things that hurt, perplex, and annoy us, and our "love account" gets close to zero.

So what is the solution?

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you." (John 15:9) Jesus got his love for the disciples from His source, the Father. Jesus carries on and says, “Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love."

(John 15:9‭-‬10)

God never asks something of us that He will not equip us for. Jesus has commanded the naturally impossible because He has told us how to supernaturally fulfil it. Get close to the Father and by accessing His love loving the people around us becomes possible. More than that, it will bring us deep and real joy.
