The Bible is our standard for life.
It’s instruction is what we as followers should be aligned with daily.
But our flesh is often at war with what Scripture instructs and our world is not an easy place to walk out the commandments of God.
Deuteronomy 6:5 NKJV — “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”
Loving God seems easy enough, but add to it loving others and no one finds it easy.
1 John 4:7 NKJV — Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
Loving God equals loving others, because God’s love is meant to be shared.
“But how do I love when…?”
“You don’t understand, I can’t love them because…”
“If they are not loving others, who can!?”
It’s easy to feel frustrated and confused by the experiences we find ourselves in.
Life can be complicated and living out God’s love can seem impossible at times.
Thankfully we have God’s Word.
Through it, God’s Holy Spirit teaches us how to live and how to love as He does.
In the Bible we find examples of both the right and wrong way to live and to love.
The best thing about God’s Word is that it always has something to teach us.
When we need guidance, wisdom, direction, and truth it’s there, waiting in His Word to shine His light into our hearts and lives.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Lord, thank You for loving us right where we are. Please continue to help us learn to love You and to love others as You teach us to. Lord, I am unable to do anything without You. Please help me to walk with You today. Please help me to obey Your voice, to think upon Your truths, praise You in all things, and love as You do. Thank You for Your love, faithfulness, and grace. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
For next week, or possibly longer, I’m going to do something different with my posts.
I’m going to take a look at some people in scripture who have had a profound impact upon my life and share with you what God has spoken to me.
I pray it’s a blessing. ❤️
