And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Romans 5:5 (KJV)
The love of God has been deposited in our hearts through the Holy Spirit dwelling on the inside of us. This means that as born again believers we have been gifted with the ability to love even the unlovable, and to extend grace rather than condemnation. Yet in order for us to do so we must first fully receive into our hearts God’s love for us. When we realize just how much He loves us—even to the point of sending His Son to die on a cross for us—we cannot help but extend His love to others!
