Wouldn’t you love to be so full of God that people could actually describe you as being God-possessed?! Wow! What a compliment! But how can you tell if you or anyone else is REALLY God – possessed? Take a look and I’ll show you…
God is love. 1 John 4:8
Ok, so if you have love, God is in you. True? You could say, you are God-possessed if you are love-possessed. God is operating inside you. But how can you tell if you have God’s kind of love in you?
You might think, “If I feel love welling up inside of me so that would mean I have love.”
Not so fast!
The question is not – Do you feel love?
The question is – Are you releasing love to those who are faithless, hopeless, and starving for true love?
God didn’t just feel love for us. He released his love for us. And this is how he did it…
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 NLT
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NLT
His love was proved by what he gave. He released.
Love: It’s not about feeling it. It’s about releasing it.
- Are you loving people today who don’t deserve your love?
- Are you loving people today who are hard to love?
- Are you loving people today who don’t love you?
- What about tomorrow?
Consider what Jesus said about releasing love:
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. John 13:34 NLT
I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. From John 15: 9, 10, 12, 13 NLT
You can’t release what you don’t have.
If your releasing love, it’s inside you.
You’re possessed…by God!
