THEME: LOVE OF CHRIST
“Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.”
-Christ has lavished His love upon us and calls us to walk in the way of love. To be holy because God is Holy. To love God with all our hearts, with all our minds, with our our souls and with all our might. Jesus tells us in John 14:15, “If you love me, keep my commands”. We know that His commandments are not burdensome for God’s grace has been poured into our hearts. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15 reveals that, “For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” As children of God, we should not then live for ourselves but for Jesus Christ who offered Himself as a ransom for all people. To put away from us greed, sexual immorality, foolish talk, coarse jesting and all kind of impurity, and be renewed in the mind that we may realize His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Thank You Jesus for Your mercy and love upon our lives, we praise Your name each day. Thank You for Your word Jesus and for feeding us spiritually. Thank You for speaking Your heart into our hearts that we may realize Your good, pleasing and perfect will. May the light of Your word become in our hearts and minds, the firmament that shines from everlasting to everlasting. Deliver us, our family members, friends, leaders, nation and entire nation from all forms of impurity, sexual immorality, greed, corruption, coarse jesting and foolish talk and everything that displeases You Jesus. Forgive us for the many times we have gone against Your holy will we humbly implore You and cover us with Your precious blood Jesus. We cast all our burdens and cares unto You, for You care for us. Your burden is light and Your yoke is easy, thank You for loving us Jesus. Grant us the grace dear Master to do Your will always. Dwell with us and in us that we may die to self and never compromise, but follow You wholeheartedly. Fill our hearts with Your love that we may love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength as You have commanded us. Give us the grace to love our neighbors as ourselves dear Jesus. Thank You for loving us first. 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 forevermore. Amen
