...so what did you see?
I've preached on that agapao/phileo thing several times..... there is so much there.... so there is no right thing for us to see. There are lots of things we could see. This time around what grabs me, is how Jesus really wants us to understand that the only love we are capable of producing is the Phileo variety...the human kind of love. We cannot produce the Agapao kind of love.....we need His very own life to see any of that variety come out of us. He knows that....and we need to know that too and say with Peter..... you know all things Lord.....especially how much I need your life in me to ever be able to agapao others.
The awesome thing is..... that once we know only He can produce that in us....the more we know we need to press into Him in order for that to begin to happen in our lives. Sometimes it seems only a fraction of an inch at a time but it does happen.....we change...we are different because of that agapao shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
Hey...... I'll take it a quarter of an inch at a time...whatever.....I'm just happy for anything He can produce in me....and you know.....it actually all begins to add up to something when you are at it long enough!
