Continuing our ten Holy Spirit concepts in ten days between the Ascension and Pentecost.
The Holy Spirit gives us the power to love others in several ways.
First, the Holy Spirit helps us see others through Jesus Christ’s eyes. When we see others through the eyes of Jesus Christ, we see them as God sees them. We see their value and their worth. We see their potential. This helps us to love them more unconditionally.
Second, the Holy Spirit helps us to forgive others. We easily hold on to our anger and resentment when others hurt us. But the Holy Spirit helps us to forgive others, even when they don’t deserve it. This powerful act of love can heal relationships and bring peace.
The Holy Spirit helps us to be patient with others, even when frustrating. This is true love.
Fourth, the Holy Spirit helps us to be kind to others. Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit and a powerful way to show love to others. The Holy Spirit helps us to be kind to others, even when they don’t deserve it. This is a way to reflect the love of God to the world.
Fifth, the Holy Spirit helps us to be generous to others. Generosity is another fruit of the Spirit, a powerful way to show love to others. The Holy Spirit helps us be generous with our time, money, and possessions. This is a way to share the love of God with others.
The Holy Spirit is a powerful helper in our love for others. He is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ and wants to help us love others more like Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Galatians 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith”
