The inspired Bible is God’s love letter to mankind, especially to those who trust in Him. He also teaches this truth through experiences He either sends our way or allows to come our way. In addition, far beyond mere intellectual instruction, to each one who receives Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord Paul says in Romans 5:5, “God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”
Let me explain: First, God gives the Holy Spirit to each one who trusts in His Son, Jesus Christ. When He comes into our lives He pours out His love into our hearts. The verb tense, “to pour,” is best translated, “has poured and continues to pour.” This is important to grasp: When the Holy Spirit comes into a new believer He pours into his heart the “agape” love of God, and continues to pour into his heart the “agape” love of God.
It’s like an artesian well with an infinite supply of God’s love available for us to experience for ourselves and to express to others. We become channels through which God, by His Spirit, loves others. Isn’t that an exciting concept? Let it sink in.
