March 12th 2019 – The Daily Grind Part 1 of 3

Love in Action

“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Paul wrote the book of Romans as a set of instructions to the body of Christ.” (Romans 12:9-10)

Have you ever tried to put together something you bought out of a box? There are instructions but most of us believe we don’t need to spend the time to read and follow them. Only later to realize we have to go back to read and correct what we didn’t get right. The book of Romans is the whole picture of how we are to be with everyone. What was written then still holds true today. Putting these instructions into your life will benefit you and others to make it thru the hardships and the daily grind that we all face. It’s an endless gift of comfort and love.

If you do not know the All Loving Lord, my prayer is that you reach out and seek Him. The deepest love you will ever experience while on earth is from Him. In return, you will learn to have a love for others. It is what the Lord called us to do. Jesus said this. Three things will last forever-faith, hope, and love-the greatest of these is love.”(Corinthians 13:13)

“Love and say it with your life!”

Prayer:

Dear Lord, I am so grateful for Your love and grace. Because You loved me, I am able to love others in every circumstance. Thank you for Your written word which gives me instruction on how to live my life. Thank you for Your Holy Spirit which guides me and encourages me. Give me strength to walk in obedient love and to look for opportunities to care for others around me. As Your love increases in me, may my earthly ways decrease. In Your holy name, Amen.

November 16th 2017 – Choose to Love

“Let all that you do be done with love.” (1 Corinthians 16:14)

In 1 Corinthians 16:14, we find such a simple command. Simply put, we are to do everything with love. While this may appear simple in direction, it’s not simple in action. Because we are broken vessels in an evil world, it can be difficult to do everything with love. After all, our first reaction is to preserve ourselves. Our emotions, our lives, our stuff; these are the things we strive to maintain at all cost… and love demands we lose them for the sake of others.

(Galatians 2:20) “My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

As Christians, we are no longer slaves to ourselves. We have been freed to love others just as Christ loved us. He is our great example as well as our strength. We cannot love rightly on our own. We must depend on Jesus. So next time someone in traffic causes you to see red, look to the cross of Christ and the blood that He shed for you. He died for us when we didn’t deserve it so now we can forgive others even when they don’t deserve it.

“You’re not living until you give your life away and start to love.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I am so grateful for Your love and grace. Because You loved me, I am able to love others in every circumstance. Give me strength to walk in obedient love and to look for opportunities to care for others around me. As Your love increases in me, may my selfishness decrease. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

September 8th 2017 – Watching our Words

“Perhaps you think we’re saying these things just to defend ourselves. No, we tell you this as Christ’s servants, and with God as our witness. Everything we do, dear friends, is to strengthen you.” (2 Corinthians 12:19)

Relationships are difficult. They require work, constant attention and above all, they should be filled with love. Of course, this is easier said than done in many cases. What happens when you are dealing with a difficult or stubborn person? Often, we begin identifying what is wrong with the other person, but what if we looked first at ourselves? What if we first asked, “How should I respond?”

(Proverbs 15:1) “A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare.”

In our flesh, we don’t feel like returning anger with a gentle answer, but it will put the fire out. A harsh word makes it escalate. It’s amazing how much the Bible mentions about the effect of our words. Watching your words can make your job better, relationships better and give you less regrets later. Do you want to change the people in your life? Start by changing yourself and the perfect place to begin is with your words. Respond in love, and God can do amazing things in all your relationships.

“By being slow to anger and choosing to love people even when it’s hard, you can be changed today. Every relationship you have including your job can be improved today.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for the love You have shown me. Help me to show love in my relationships and to watch my words. Give me the strength to be slow to speak and slow to become angry. Lord, help me also understand that Love is also a choice, and help my heart choose love in the tough times when I dont always feel like it. May my actions of being slow to anger and expressing love even when it’s hard, change the world, one relationship at a time. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
