God’s love has been poured into our hearts

“… and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5 (ESV)

The image of God’s love being poured into our hearts is very powerful.

I visualise this generous, never-ending flow of love that is designed to not only fill-us-up but then pour out of us as we share this love with others.

Like a “cup that runneth over” (Psalms 23:5).

It’s a beautiful thing to receive this gift from God so graciously bestowed upon us through the “Holy Spirit”.

But how much better it is to then love others?

As the apostle John said in his first letter, “… let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” (1 John 4:7)


prayer : thank you for the gift of love that comes through the Holy Spirit

action : love one another
