“He has told us about the love for others that the Holy Spirit has given you” (Colossians 1:8, NLT).

Many think love is a feeling. Some have figured out it’s a choice and a commitment. It can be both, but from God’s point of view, it’s a fruit of his Spirit, a gift from the Spirit and it’s who God is. Sometimes even Christians aren’t very loving so it’s good to realize God is the one who gives us love out of himself and fills us with himself, as we (by his power in the Spirit) surrender our wills to his.
