Thought of the day (13)
Thought of the day: Everything should come back to Love. The greatest commandments are "Love God and Love others." We as Christians are called to make sacrifices daily, or more beautifully stated "We're called to take up our crosses daily," because we feel the Father's Love and have fallen for Him.
It's important to see the order found in Matthew 22:37-40. It is vital to Love God first before we can Love others.. This is for two main reasons. First, God created Love and sent the perfect example of how to Love in the form of a Baby named Jesus, who is one with God Himself. And second, Our Love for Him drives our Love for others. When you fall in Love with the living God who Loves perfectly, you can't help but let that Love flow from you and work through you to those made in His image. It should be like a flood that fills our bodies and is flooding to everyone who comes near us.
This is my prayer to everyone today... That you can fall in Love with Jesus Christ who lived the perfect example of Love for us, and also that you can let that Love flow from you and guide you; that you could share this everlasting Love with everyone you come in contact with. And remember... Whatever you do... Everything should come back to Love.
“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
1 Corinthians 16:14
Do everything in love.
"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
