One of the great things we see about God’s love is that it can’t help but overflow to others. When we understand that God loves us, we can’t help but let that love just run over onto others.
Listen to what Jesus says today in John 7:37-39:
On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'” Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
It’s gonna happen!
When we’ve tasted the goodness of God we can’t help but to share that goodness with others! We can’t help but to let that grace of God that we’ve experienced come out.
And that’s the natural progression of how things should work. We don’t others out of duty or obligation. We don’t share the goodness of God with others because we have to. We don’t show grace to others because we will get in trouble if it doesn’t happen.
We do it cause it can’t help but happen. When we’ve felt His grace and mercy, that grace and mercy will flow out.
When we understand how much we’ve been forgiven, we can’t help but to forgive others.
It’s just gonna happen!
So, today, in all your life, in every moment of your today today love others. Show that grace, mercy, and joy. Share it with others. Let others know it, see it, and experience it.
As you’ve been loved, love others.
But in reality, I don’t even need to tell you that. As God’s grace is made known in your life, it WILL filer over into others. It’s just gonna happen.
Today, draw close to God and His grace. And in doing that, that mercy and that grace, it will overflow to others.
