1 John 4:19-5:4
As a human being, how can I even begin to love as variously and consistently as God? I must first realize that any love I give does not originate from me alone. Rather, I can love because I can become like a stream-bed for God’s love to flow out from my spirit into the souls of the world. As much as I submit to God’s love flowing in and through me, I can love others. Holy Spirit, help me to love from God’s love for me.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. (Isaiah in Luke 4)
