There are times when a person may become very bitter, and seem to have been baptized in the bitterness of vinegar. There does not seem to be much love from the Lord in their life. They may have accepted the Lord in the past, but something happened, something went wrong.
That person was not rooted and grounded in love. How can a change be made? The reason your inner man needs to be strengthened is so Christ may dwell (take up residence), in your heart by faith. It is impossible for the love of God to flow through you, if it’s not in you, and frequently being replenished. You could have had the love of God flowing through you in the past, but with no frequent replenishing, this love will run out. God loves you, and wants His love to flow through you. Spend time in prayer and the Scriptures on a daily basis, which will put you in closer contact with the love of God. For love is the greatest of all gifts.
Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love.
