Where Your Heart Is

lake_14400ac“[T]he love that fulfills the law, the love on which the law and the prophets hang, the love that blesses them who curse us and prays for them who despitefully use us, the love patterned after the perfection of the Father in heaven, is the love that is generated, fostered, maintained, and perfected in the realm of the Spirit. The powers of this realm are regnant in believers because they have been made alive together with Christ and raised up together and made to sit together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus (cf. Ephesians 2:5,6), and these powers are regnant because the Spirit of the Lord is regnant.” John Murray, Principles of Conduct, p. 227).
