It becomes very clear that the kind of love that Jesus is expecting His disciples to exercise toward one another is not the garden-variety, natural-based, human-type of love. I think we as Christians in our churches get frustrated in trying to carry out this simple command of loving one another because we think of it in natural terms. Most people may very well have a generally good capacity to get along with other people. However, when discomfort, offense, conflicting personalities and personal space issues enter into the fray - what then?
1). You must be born-again in saving faith.
2). You must be desire with all your heart to be filled (Mt 5:6; Jn 7:37-39))
3). You must believe God will fill you, not just God can fill you
4). You must denounce all known sin in your life. (Prov. 28:13)
5). You must dethrone self and enthrone Christ as Lord of all.
6). You must, by faith, ask the Holy Spirit to fill you. (Lk 11:13)
7). You must accept the fact He has filled you and live in total dependence on Him. (Gal 5:16)
