The Deposits Have Been Made: Part 11

Once you understand Agape Love, your actions will line up with the deposits made by FATHER already existing in you.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 1:

9 For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;

12 giving thanks to the Father Who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His Love

HE has already done these things: qualified, delivered, and conveyed.  We didn’t earn these deposits, they are gifts of Love from FATHER.  When we walk in these gifts, we produce fruit of THE SPIRIT found in Galatians chapter 5 recorded by Paul who received the revelation by The Holy Spirit:

22–23 But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is Divine Love in all its varied expressions:

joy that overflows,

peace that subdues,

patience that endures,

kindness in action,

a life full of virtue,

faith that prevails,

gentleness of heart, and

strength of spirit.

Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.

All that matters now is living in the faith that works and expresses itself through Love.  As we immerse ourselves in The Word (especially Colossians and Ephesians) our mindsets will be transformed and great faith will manifest among us to do those greater works Jesus referenced in Mark chapter 16.

Once you understand Agape Love, it will cause you to live a Godly life and the above fruit will abound in your life.  Agape Love must be our foundation.

The Beloved Disciple had this revelation as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 3:

1 Look with wonder at the depth of the Father’s marvelous Love that He has lavished on us! He has called us and made us His very own Beloved Sons and Daughters. The reason the world doesn’t recognize who we are is that they didn’t recognize Him. 2 Beloved, we are God’s children right now; however, it is not yet apparent what we will become. But we do know that when it is finally made visible, we will be just like Him, for we will see Him as He truly is. 3 And all who focus their hope on Him will always be purifying themselves, just as Jesus is pure.

The greater our revelation of Agape Love, the greater our fruitfulness on behalf of HIS Kingdom here on earth will abound.  When you see GOD as HE really is, you will start acting like HIM.  After all, we are made in HIS image but in the past, we have looked dimly in a mirror.  It is time to see clearly for The Word purifies us and allows us to see clearly.  This includes both you and me.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 4:

7 Those who are Loved by God, let his Love continually pour from you to one another, because God is Love. Everyone who Loves is fathered by God and experiences an intimate knowledge of Him. 8 The one who doesn’t Love has yet to know God, for God is Love

Man’s love is performance-based and you are subject to potential rejection if you don’t perform.  It is temporary in nature and can be withdrawn if you fail to continue in the area of performance by the one who distributes such love.  The spirit of rejection is behind this type of love and there is always an “If” attached.

Agape Love is preexistent and does not require your performance.  It operates by grace or unmerited favor.  Agape Love wrote your book and formed you in the womb thus you have a foundation of Agape Love waiting on your revelation of this Truth.  Pursue it and it will be revealed for FATHER is not withholding it, HE is waiting for us to open our eyes and pursue understanding. 

We do have a choice in whether we choose life or death.  When we pursue life, Agape Love is before us and wants to be revealed so that we can walk in what we already have.  We must appropriate what GOD has already deposited in us.  We are told to ask, seek, and knock and if those deposits of Agape Love weren’t there, Jesus would not have directed us to do so.
