God: showed us perfect love…
Ephesians 5:2 (KJV) “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.”
I got a real deep eye opener in looking at the word of God and it’s application for my life a while back. It made me realize that the direction we get from the word and the actual application is two separate things.
The reason we are supposed to have the spirit of God within us is that He is the one doing the will of God in us to accomplish the perfecting.
If not for the working of the Spirit of God, how many of us would be able to truly do and accomplish Agape love? The kind which comes from the Father above and cannot be dissimulated.
It would be a different accounting I can guarantee. The work without God is not possible.
