Did you know that your Heavenly Father allows you to learn and grow from your mistakes? It’s actually a sign of His love. Through the Cross, Jesus took the ultimate punishment your sins deserved. In prayer today, praise God for this sacrifice and thank Him for His discipline, correction, instruction, and training.
PROGRESS - Celebrate how far you’ve come, and not how much you have yet to achieve. The former will empower you to greatness, while the latter is rooted in fear and only serves to hold you back from greatness
“Guys Keep Moving Forward, in Every progress you make, don’t ever forget to thank God for not leaving your side. :) “
What is Love?
1 John 3:16
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
- There are a lot of definition about love. But what is the real Love? For us to know the real meaning of love, we must look back to the cross and know what Christ did for us. When we understand what God did on the cross, we will know what real love is.
3 points about Love :
1. Real love is initiated by God.
1 John 4: 19
We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
- God is love and he is the initiator of love.
2. Real love will bring you closer to God.
1 John 4:10
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
- Because of sin we were separated from God. But because he loves us he gave his Son Jesus to pay for our sins. The goal of Jesus Christ is for us to get closer to God.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect for love.
3. Real love results to laying down of one’s life for someone.
- As it is said, For he loved us, Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sin and for us to know His love for us and for us to have a everlasting love. A love that cannot be compared from others. God showed what love is.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
C.S. Lewis said that “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains…” Is God trying to get your attention today? In prayer today, talk with God about your attitude. Confess your sin and ask for a heart that trusts in Him even amidst life’s hardships.
Self-centeredness is the problem of the human condition. We naturally look out for ourselves and no one else. The way of Jesus is much different. He invites us to lose our lives, to find true life in surrender to Him. In prayer today, confess your lack of love for others. Ask God to help you see the needs of others, and begin serving them in Jesus’ Name.
Jesus came to serve, and give His life as a ransom for many. More than any other miracle, Jesus healed. He saw people who were helpless - physically and spiritually - and served both needs by miraculously healing broken bodies and dying on a cross for our spiritual healing. Pray this day for the spiritual and physical healing that our servant King offers to us.
Too much to make sense of it all, I know that Your love breaks my fall, the SCANDAL of GRACE; You died in my place! So my soul will live..
Thank you Lord. <3 …
