The measure of our growth in love is also the measure of our maturity. Through Christ God manifested to us His loving kindness, mercy and benevolence. His love is totally unconditional, unchangeable, persistent and undeserved – it can only be understood by us through the Spirit. To see prophecy fulfilled in our lives we need to understand the love of God for us and respond thereto by pursuing Jesus. In this response to God’s love we humbly near His throne (which is the new mercy seat) and we will receive more of the mercy and grace which is obtainable there. When we have a revelation of the love of God it also results in a measurable transformation and growth in us. Being positioned in the love of Jesus is being positioned to see the supernatural and receive greater revelation. This revelation also brings about a growth in faith, because it is easier to have faith in someone whom you love. Jesus finds your love irresistible and will withhold nothing from you. Mature love is that which loves and cares for others regardless of your own pain. Love takes responsibility and this responsibility which you receive from God, is actually a promotion from Him. Once you get this promotion from God you will get the power, gifts and provision from God to fulfill your responsibility. The depth of your relationship with Jesus is determined by your own choice.
