Love comes from a well that can’t be drained.

Fully Satisfied Manifesto

Have you ever felt like your “love tank” was empty or almost empty? Have you ever been around people that seem to be a little more “needy” than others? How do you deal with these situations? How you respond in these circumstances shows where your “well” is.

Gush or How To Get Into the Flow of Life

The Holy Spirit is the extravagant Administrator of the salvation of Jesus Christ; he gushes forth in our midst like an artesian well.

(An artesian well is a well sunk through solid strata of sedimentary rock into strata from an area of a higher altitude than that of the well, so that there is sufficient pressure to force water to flow upwards. From the French word, artesian, referring to the old French province Artois, where such wells were common. In John 7:37-39, John records how Jesus witnessed the eighth day, the great and final day of the Feast of Tabernacles, when, according to custom, the High Priest would draw water from the Pool of Siloam with a golden jar, mix the water with wine, and then pour it over the altar while the people would sing with great joy from Psalm 118:25-26, and also Isaiah 12:3; “Therefore with joy shall we draw water from the wells of salvation!” Then, Jesus, knowing that he is the completeness of every prophetic picture and promise, cried out with a loud voice: “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink! If you believe that I am what the scriptures are all about, you will discover that you are what I am all about, and rivers of living waters will gush from your innermost being!” See Rom 5:5)

Titus 3:6 Mirror

I love this translation of this passage.

The picture of Holy Spirit being a gushing well paints the picture that you can’t control His flow. It also shows that there’s no work involved in getting Him to produce Jesus’ salvation. He gives it liberally and continually.

So, what are we supposed to do now that we know this? Let him administrate extravagantly and gush salvation all over us! We get to be the recipient of this glorious salvation!

Do I Love Well?

Most of all, love each other steadily and unselfishly, because love makes up for many faults.
1 Peter 4:8 (VOICE)

Sometimes God speaks through His best voice to me, my wife. Tonight, as we talked about the day and life, she asked, “Do you think we love well?”

I had to really think about it. My answer when I really get ground-level honest about it is, No. I like to think that I do, but on deeper inspection I fail miserable. I don’t want to be this person.

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:8 (VOICE)

But, the revelation that I am getting is that I don’t have to pull from my small reservoir of love. Some days it’s all I can do to love my family when everything is falling apart. I have “Mr. Love” dwelling inside of me. When I realize that, love becomes the easiest thing I can do, because it’s not dependent on me to do the loving.

Now, when I have issues with the person or people I am supposed to love, that’s when I need Mr. Love to take over and do His thing. The verse above is the kicker. “…makes up for many faults.” including my own. OUCH

So, my takeaway is this: Christ’s love is better, stronger, and more stable than my love. All I am required to do is be a branch that is connected to the vine and allow His love to flow into and through me.

In the words of Todd White – “Become Love.
