1 John 3:14
We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death.
-Often times have we seen people making selfless sacrifices to others, for instance; parents to their children, husbands to wives, wives to their husbands, sacrifices between friends, within the family unit and in the society at large. Some go to the extent of donating kidneys to their loved ones and others do it for strangers. Many individuals and organizations offer food, shelter, clothing, education and other incidentals to the less fortunate in the quest of love. Acts of love can also be demonstrated in many other ways as we follow the example of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, who died and resurrected so that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. For this reason; if we live, we live for the Lord and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord (Rom 14:8-9). It is in love that we abide in life but hatred; stirs up strife leading to death. When Cain was jealous of his brother Abel, he killed him. We are called to demonstrate the love of Christ for one another and abide in His love through selflessness as we are led by the Holy Spirit.
Fill us Your love Holy Spirit that we may abide in You as You are in us. May Your love produce good relationships and interactions with one another as You have called us to do. Help us Lord to always be selfless as we forsake our self seeking needs for the benefit of others. Thank You for loving us Lord with an everlasting love. Deliver us merciful Father from all jealousy and grant us the grace to forgive others as You forgive our trespasses too. Shepherd us Jesus in all our endeavor and take control of our lives, families, jobs, businesses, relationships, marriages, studies, plans and our nation. Heal all those who are sick and suffering and shine Your face upon them. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; and the love of God; and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen
