Love is Not an Emotion

“Give and it shall be given to you; good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall men pour into your bosom.” Luke 6:38

The Lord gave me a revelation about this verse. It does not only refer to material and financial things, it also refers to love, among other things.

There is a great principle of God that  applies to love—no matter how much you give, your supply is not depleted—and not only is your supply NOT depleted, it grows. Love, mercy, grace, longsuffering—all of these are the fruit of the Spirit, and they grow equally as we practice them. It is the Holy Spirit who causes them to grow, not us, and that is why they are called the fruit of The Spirit. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in our lives, God will see to it that it does. The greatest of these is love, if we have the love of God in us, we will have mercy, grace, longsuffering, etc, in ever increasing measure.

Galatians 5:22-23King James Version (KJV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

1 Corinthians 13:13King James Version (KJV)

13 And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
