    Continued from: A Humble Person Does Not Stoop: We can receive His love anytime simply by humbly opening the door of our heart. Then, through the power of His love, we have the strength to overcome our old sin nature and love him back. Because He loves us first, we are able to do our part and complete an exchange of love.

    This exchange of love is similar to human relationships, but it is so much more. We, the branches, out of this union with Jesus, the Vine, can now produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit-love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, etc. It is these qualities that tie us together with our Lord in eternal fellowship and friendship.

    We can be a friend of God; through this close personal relationship, we can have loving companionship and that peace "that passes all understanding" now and throughout eternity. That in itself is a giant blessing, but there is more.

    The communication that comes out of this loving relationship brings us into the very presence of the Lord and that produces the reverential awe that the Bible calls the fear of God. It says in Psalm 33:8, "Let all the earth fear the Lord-let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him" and in the 18th. verse of the same chapter:

    "Behold the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His steadfast love". A close relationship with the Lord produces not only His presence, but reverential awe and hope in His steadfast love. That is a channel for a multitude of blessings from God as He keeps His eye on us.

    Love always, Walter
