Psalm 90:12
Teach us to use wisely each day given to us . . .

Why Jesus Came - 1

John 3:
16 God loved the world this way: He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.
17 God sent his Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but to save the world.
John 10:
10 A thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I came so that my sheep will have life and so that they will have everything they need.
1 John 4:
9 God has shown us his love by sending his only Son into the world so that we could have life through him.
10 This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the payment for our sins.
11 Dear friends, if this is the way God loved us, we must also love each other.   (God's Word)

The whole point of the coming of the Lord Jesus into the world is to let us human beings know in person that God loves us. When we look at the attitude and response of Jesus to the people he came in contact with in the Gospels, this shows us God's attitude and response to us human beings.

We see over and over again that God's love for us is a love which gives. When we open our hearts to God, we can experience His love for ourselves.
Romans 5:
5 We're not ashamed to have this confidence, because God's love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.   (God's Word)

When we put our confidence in the Lord Jesus, this enables the Holy Spirit to pour His love into our hearts. The Holy Spirit is continually pouring this love into our hearts, but it's up to us how much of God's love we are able to receive.
If our heart is full of confidence in Him, we are able to accommodate more and more of God's life-giving love.
But sometimes our hearts are cluttered with negatives like
      shame,
      guilt,
      fear,
      mistrust,
      anger,
      rebellion,
      lies,
      deception,
      rejection,
      separation
      confusion.

These negatives clog up our hearts and cause us to choke when the Holy Spirit pours this love into us.
As we begin to find our confidence in God's presence, those negatives lose their power to shut God's love out of us, and we are able to receive more and more of what the Holy Spirit is constantly pouring into us.
And as we are able to soak up His love in our heart, then we increasingly have the ability to show this giving kind of love to others.

Prayer:
Loving heavenly Father,
thank You so much that Your love is so positively aimed at me,
that You were the first to show this love to me
by giving Your Son,
to be my substitute and be killed on the Cross in my place.
Lord Jesus Christ,
work in me so that wherever I am clogged up
and unable to receive Your love,
You will set me free.
Today I receive Your freedom to receive Your love into my heart.
Today I am being made whole in my inner person by Your love for me!
Hallelujah!   Amen.
