Day 93 Loving Others
Sunday, December 25, 2016
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. - 2 Peter 1:5-7
But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him.? - 1 John 3:17
Because of God's love, Jesus paid an overwhelming debt He didn't owe through His death on the cross. The apostle Paul admonishes us to incur a debt we can never pay - the debt of continuing love. Love is the only debt God encourages. In this instance, we can never owe enough.
Dear Lord, thank You for the price You paid for me. May I increase the debt of love I owe to others.
