Just for Today

If anyone says, “I love god” but keeps on hating his brother, he is a liar because it he cannot love his brother that he can see, how can he love god who he has not seen?  I John 4:20 (paraphrase)

I John 4 describes agape love.  Going to church once a week does not prove that we love God.  Acts of mercy and deeds of love are part of Agape love, but there is more.  The gift of love from God through the Holy Spirit guides in how to live in love 24/7.

We are to love as Jesus loved.  We are to let love shine in our hearts and live with Joy in loving.

“Just for Today”

  • Practice loving the “unlovable.”  God places the people in our lives who need love.  Pray to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
  • Today if Sunday.  Greet people around you with joy and love.
  • Pray faithfully for our staff, and for our loaders, elders and deacons.
