Intimate intoxication leaves an indelible mark on your life. One song writer describes it as being, “Drenched in His love.” If we were especially formed to hold the Lord, and the Scripture teaches that God is Love 1 John 4:8, then it is fair to say we were designed to be vessels of His love.
· We were created to be loved supremely: This is why God’s one rule for our husbands is to love us. He knows we have this innate need, we were born with it!
o We naturally crave deep rich affection
o I am here to tell you that only Jesus can supply the amount and intensity of love you require.
§ Our spouse’s can’t do it ~ we need to stop trying to force them to give us what they don’t have.
§ Our kids can’t do it…
§ Our career, our education, or any other thing we seek after for our identity…
§ LOSE yourself in Jesus, let Him sweep you away with His love this very minute and you will find real LOVE, rich PURPOSE, and resounding JOY!
· We were also created to be channels of His love to others:
o Love is what draws all of us to Jesus: God’ love is irresistible. If you are in love with Jesus it shows, people will be drawn to you because they see something in you they want for themselves…
§ No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him. ~ John 6:44
§ 1 John 4:12: No one has seen God at anytime. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us.
§ Whose love are you craving tonight? Fall more in love with Jesus and I guarantee His love in you will draw them closer to you.
o Love covers a multitude of sins:
§ Whose sin is weighing upon you right now? Is it your husband’s, your son, your best friend’s, someone in this room tonight, or is it your own?
§ Will you look at the cross, see Jesus’ blood covering and washing away that sin that is hurting you.
§ Love Him by loving the one who has sinned against you.
§ Jesus loves sinners…therefore, so should we!
§ Our world is in desperate need of this covering love.
§ Proverbs 10:12: Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.
Let your whole heart open up and take this in…the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, The Giver of Strength, The Dispenser of Grace, the Revealer of Jesus, the Reminder of Hope, the Seal and Promise for us….is beckoning you to let every last fear and drop of unbelief pass away and cling to Him TODAY!
