A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (KJV)
Love is not an easy pursuit. In order to love someone you have to believe in them, you have to trust in them, and you have to have faith in them. You have to be ready to sacrifice everything for them, up to and including your life. That sounds pretty extreme but that’s what true love is about. Anything less is just a passing infatuation. Jesus has such a love for us. He sacrificed all and gave His life so that we might have eternal life. He deserves the same amount of love, in the same way that He loves us.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit show us how to love in the same way that we are loved. Thank You for loving us. Thank You for sending Your Son Jesus to pay for our sins. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to pay the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live with You and Your Father in His heavenly Kingdom to come.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
