Whereas the object and purpose of our instruction and charge is love [charity, agape love], which springs from a pure heart and a good (clear) conscience and sincere (unfeigned) faith.1 Timothy 1:5 (AMP)
I love this.
It all comes back to love – agape love. Which is defined by Merriam-Webster like this:
Spontaneous self-giving love expressed freely without calculation of cost or gain to the giver or merit on the part of the receiver: a : the love of God for man b : Christian brotherly love in its highest manifestation
And it is a love that is birthed from three things:
- A pure heart
- A clear conscience
- Sincere faith
Look at that – it comes back to faith again.
Lord, bring the Holy fire and the healing rain. Continue to grow in me even more the three things I need to birth Your agape love. I want to love like You. Take me to the next level…
I love You, Lord! All power and honor and glory and dominion unto You!
