The Potential in You Part 1
“The Power of Love”

“Where lives change and where life can begin again”

Hi there! Go grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and let’s learn more about God. Bring a 

friend over and discuss the message and let’s just have fun learning.

You know, I began to ask God a few questions of why people struggle with their salvation and

their giving and their loving others. Some of them talk and act one way in church, but then 

they go home and live different lives. How sad. They miss the best of God. They live their 

lives trying to please others and themselves and not realizing that there is a “one and only” 

True God. He sees everything and knows everything within our hearts. Hard to trick, huh? We 

must realize that life is not a game we play, but a life of learning and growing in the 

knowledge of that God. We must live a life believing God in everything. Our one life pursuit is 

getting to know Him more. And His one life pursuit is to give us everything we need and 

desire. (Hebrews 11:6) When we seek God, everything else is added to us. (Matt 6:33)

The greatest joy that I have living as a Christian, is bringing joy to the Father. I stay

 determined to learn what it takes to live a successful life in the Kingdom while living on this 

earth. Trusting the voice that is on the inside of me and walking by faith, knowing that I’m 

never alone. I can never fail if I am always in Him. No matter what it looks like, I am 

succeeding. 

We will be talking about the “potential in you” and how God designed you to be 

successful. He has given us tools and gifts and all of Himself to make this life prosperous 

and full of peace and joy. However, this is only done through God’s way. We will be examining 

the nature and the characteristics of God. If God has never failed, nor will he ever fail. and 

God is inside you, then you have His nature for success.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, we will be talking about “The Fruit of the Spirit”. This is a road

map to success that God has given to us if we activate what is on the inside of us, which 

is God Himself. The Fruit of the Spirit is so much more than a lesson for kids or a song for 

kids to memorize. It is our lifelong lesson to become more and more like God.

So, we will start off with the characteristic of love. You know love is a key characteristic that 

God commands we walk in. But, He did not command us to do something that He did not 

give us the ability to be successful in.

God is love. Real simple, right? Then why do we struggle? Let’s look at a few scriptures to

 make it easier. The Word always makes it easier.

First, You must believe that He is. Huge point!

Hebrews 11:6

“6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe

 that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

It takes diligence in this world to know God and to grow in Him. To know Him is to love him

and believe the love inside of you.

Second, You must believe the love.

Romans 8:38-39

“38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the

present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all

creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

There is nothing that you have done in the past, present, or future that can separate you from

His love. He believes in you, now believe in Him.

Say after me, “I believe the love!”

Third, You can love just like God because He is on the inside of you.

John 14:23-24

“23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My

 Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does 

not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the 

Father’s who sent Me.”

Jesus reminds us that the message that he is speaking is The Father’s. When we 

except Jesus into our heart and work to do His commands of love, they all will come and live 

on the inside of us. Giving us the ability to love and walk in the very characteristics and 

nature of God.

Begin, seeing people through the eyes of God, the eyes of Love. The love is on the inside of

you. Activate it by believing it. Before you leave your house, daily, decide to love and forgive.

There will be many opportunities for offense and forgiveness, choose to love.

Satan will no longer have the power to control your heart and your feelings and emotions.

When Satan brings thoughts of bad to our minds, we now have the power to cast them down

with love. We choose to walk in the love and believe the love.

Think about it, gain knowledge of the increase of control and power you have over your 

life and over demonic influences. Satan can come in and change your whole day with one 

word or one bad attitude. Choosing to love puts the “ball” of control back in your court.

Let’s not give any place to Satan in our lives. Recognize the power within you to change your

world with love every day. The potential lies within you. It’s just a firm decision away.

Next week we will continue to talk about the Fruit of the Spirit. The “Potential in You”, Joy, It’s

more than a feeling

You have more power than you know.
