Love leads to service in generosity. When we fail to experience the love of God, we grow despondent, we become idle, we do not serve. And we are not generous, working, serving, giving, they all become hard to do. We want to take what we can rather than give what we have. And yet we can't give what we don't have. That's why we must experience God's love. If we are to show love, we must be filled in growing our understanding and expression of His love, if we are to give that love to others. So Paul prays for us here in verse 5, he says, may the Lord lead your hearts into full understanding and expression of the love of God, and the patient endurance that comes from Christ. Do you know that you are loved? Sometimes it's hard to remember that we are. It takes patient endurance, to hold firmly to that truth. So that in the end, it is deeply rooted in your very soul. And we must do this. God's love is exactly what emerges from the Gospel. When we look and see the face of Jesus, we see what he has done. And so each and every day we open our hearts to the Spirits working in our lives. And we come to the Word of God day after day to be reminded of who he is, what he has done, and who we have become in him. Through his presence in us, we begin to be led into a full understanding and expression of the love of God. We patiently endure when it seems like the heavens are silent. More and more. We learned that this walk with Christ is a long obedience in the same direction. He is with us and we can grow and experience His love out of this will come a life of service, generosity, joyfulness and hope. So let us grow into a fuller understanding of His love. Amen.
