How To Love As Jesus Commands

The Lord has provided the Holy Spirit to works to produce His fruit in you
When you demonstrate kindness, patience, or gentleness
To those who don't deserve such pleasant treatment
Know it's the Lord’s love at work through you

This fruit is not produced by trying harder
But think of it as sap running through a branch on a grape-vine
The branch doesn’t make grapes; the sap does
So it's the Spirit that flows through you
Producing God’s love in you
So that you can pass it on to those
Who are unkind or hard to get along with

Agape love is the reason you are able to care for someone who mistreats you
It's God’s doing, not yours
Even the adoration you offer the Lord is not without His assistance
Though the command to love is enormous
God’s grace makes it possible

So invite the Holy Spirit into your life, today.
