Love is displayed in selflessly giving to others and the ministry in which we are engaged should manifest the sacrificial grace, compassion, and kindness that Christ has shown towards us – in that while we were yet sinners, Jesus died for US. His kindness towards us can indeed be described as “good measure–pressed down, shaken together, and running over,” for by grace we have been saved and by grace we have received many precious promises which are ours by faith in Christ.
With Jesus as our pattern of godly living and the model of divine love, should not we seek to imitate His goodness and grace? NOT in our own strength, but in the supernatural strength that He supplies, through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit: “Without me, You can do nothing.” Without ME, You cannot love as I have loved. BUT: “I can do all through CHRIST, Who strengthens me, in the power of His Holy Spirit.”
