Just read in Romans 5:5 that as Christ followers, God’s love has been shed abroad- poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit. I’ve read it many times before, but I decided to camp out and “chew” on it like it was something new. I had a WOW moment at the connection it brings for the trenches in ministry. As leaders it is the CORE of what we’ve received. It’s really only His Love (BIG L)we have to give out to our team, our kids. On our own the love (little l) deal can run out quickly. But God’s Love in our heart is a never ending supply deposited in us. The Holy Spirit fills us with the ability to give that Love out God has lavished on us. A never ending Love supply poured into you. You CAN Love those challenging kids/parents/leaders! You CAN make it through dark days. Everybody has them. But it can make you think twice about those difficult people in your life. When it comes to the love supply in your heart- God wins out if you will rely on him. Romans 5:4 talks of endurance being needed because it develops fortitude of character. SO ministry and personality challenges should cause us to be determined to endure because of that GREAT love supply in our hearts. Leader Love? Priceless!
