Love Like Jesus
- The proof of love is the willingness to die/lay down our lives/put selves aside for others. "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." (1 John 3:16) We may not have to die for someone but there are other ways to demonstrate sacrificial love such as giving, encouraging, helping, listening, spending time with them, being there for them.
- Such a standard of love can be accomplished only as Christ's own love is flowing through our lives!
- Prayer: Dear Lord, may Your love overwhelm us and flow through us continually. Please empower us to love others like you do... unconditionally, selflessly, and sacrificially. Please help us to die to self repeatedly and daily. May everything we do be motivated by love and done in love!
