108- Not A Speck
July 4, 1983
I need love and deep peace, Lord. There’s not a speck of them in me.
You gave us a command to love:
2 John 1:5 …a new commandment…that we love one another.
Bible notes: The new law of Christ is the divine love as wrought into the renewed heart by the Holy Spirit.
Romans 5:5 …because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit…
Bible notes: This love flows out in the energy of the Spirit, unforced and spontaneous, toward the objects of the divine love.
I am reading these scriptures, carefully writing them, but not PRAYING and letting God do His work in my heart.
1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
I’m a hypocrite. Though I don’t hate, I’m stuck in unlove.
