A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. John 13:34
The Lord has given us a great commission not only to preach the gospel and make disciples of nations but to also do something that can seem daunting…Love one another! You may ask yourself “How am I supposed to love everyone?”. Let’s remove quantity out of the equation for now and let’s just imagine if you surrendered your heart to love even just one individual. I challenge you today to pick someone…especially an enemy or someone that has caused you pain. Begin to direct your prayers, encouragement, and kindness towards them. Search your own heart during this time and just watch and see how God begins to open up your heart more and more, inspiring you to desire to share that same love and compassion towards many others. Be a faithful steward over the love that God has placed in your heart with at least one and experience the multiplication of opportunities to share it with all!
Heavenly Father, I thank you that your love resides in me by the Holy Spirit which you have given me. Because of that, I can walk in your nature and share it with whoever you place in my path. I thank you for the “one” that you have appointed unto me this day. Teach me each and every day to be alive and aware of every opportunity to reveal your love to others. In Jesus name let it be so.
