CAN WE LOVE ENOUGH?
We don’t muster it up. We can’t! I mean, we’d never try to work really hard and muster up enough power in our hands to go heal blind eyes. We know that’s outside of what we can do in and of ourselves. However, I feel like quite often we are tempted to try and “muster up” love for people, to try in our own selves to love enough to release a blessing to them. But we can’t muster up compassion any more than we can strive to work a power miracle of healing.
It’s outside of us. It’s done to us. It comes upon and moves up through us. Only after we’ve been moved upon, are we then moved to action and the miracle is released. So to live like Jesus means we are moved by compassion, and everything we do for ministry is out of that God Emotion.
