Bible Study & Devotional Day 64
🔴 Reside with Love
Written by: Torrie Slaughter
How do we love our neighbor?
We learn how to be a friend by becoming one. Following Christ’s example, we can study the Word of God and apply it to our lives.
Prayer is a powerful tool, but like anything, we have to practice exercising our spiritual muscles. How will we know God is speaking to us? We have the power of discernment to receive God’s word; by getting to know Him, we can imitate what we read. Turn to God and become healthy in mind, body, and spirit. Enjoying the freedom of knowing God is the essential part of our day.
The whole point is to show love; to be love, we must communicate what the other cannot see. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. We can trust Him to give us the answers and steer us in the correct direction. Letting go of the arrogance of believing we can do it ourselves.
Love serves, love disciplines, love is faithful, love is sincere. Love is a responsibility of our hearts. We must love God, so we can fully love ourselves to reciprocate that love to each other. Our lives have meaning when what we are doing is part of God’s purpose for us.
It is at the center of who we are and the work Christ did on the cross to redeem us.
“Love is a destination. It is a place we want to reside.”
Love shouldn’t be Greek to us. 😉

- Philia – friend bond.
