211 ~ God is Speaking to Me about His Love

211 – God is Speaking to Me about His Love

September 25, 1986

Oswald Chambers*: The springs of love are not in us…The springs of love are in the Holy Ghost.

Romans 5:5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5

You are my new best friend, Holy Spirit. Please shed love and keep shedding love into my heart.

All of us singles filled up the front rows of the church and worshiped the Lord with all our hearts. We were so grateful for salvation, for deliverance from sin and self, and we wanted to know Jesus, and love Him, and be filled with His love for others.
