John 15:9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.”
Are you a reservoir or a river? A reservoir is a container that holds something in reserve for later use. But a river is an ever flowing, ever changing, source of life giving water. I think that God wants us to be rivers of His love not just reservoirs.
As we remain in His love, we are to love others with that same love that Jesus has shown to us. And Jesus showed the world His love by sharing it with others. I love that verse from Michael W. Smith, “Love isn’t love ’til you give it away” How true!
If we are to abide in the love of Jesus, we have to give and serve others the way that Jesus has given and served us. Who has God put in your life today that you are being called to serve? Who can you pour love into today? What do you need from God to a river of His love today?
