IS love in you?

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Yes, it's Valentine's Day. The day you send sweets to those you're in love with. But the greater question - Is not who are you in love with but is Love in you.

Christ in us. God is love. Is God in you? Have you opened the door to your heart and asked Jesus to enter? While we can in the flesh be nice and sweet, it is only when we are infused with the power of the Holy Spirit that we can truly love.

Love is not warm fuzzy feelings. Love is a strong tower. A might fortress. An Almighty God who smiles at the smallest of babes, rescues His children out of miry pits, and destroys the works of the devil.

Love gives you the power to love your family. Even more, love gives you the power to forgive and love your enemies.

But don't attempt it on your own.

Ask the Lord of Love into your heart and watch Him change you from the inside out. Discover the difference between the act of love and being love.

Don't look to feel the love, look to be the love of God a dying world needs.

This Valentine's Day - begin it by asking Jesus into your heart. You won't regret it. You'll never be the same.
