How To Love Others: Devotional 1 John 4:11-13

How do we love others?

What shows love?

We who Christ sacrificed much for need to spend a few minutes thinking about this. It's no small thing that God sacrificed Himself on a cross for our sin and shame and now we are made worthy, free, and empowered by His Spirit.

If we are so empowered by His Spirit then we can do anything that He calls us to do. (And I am not talking about the mountain of to do list that we create for ourselves without checking in with God about our self-imposed tasks.)

What is He calling you to do? Are you saying yes to loving your confusing neighbor by praying for them, by holding space for them when they talk, by doing a few mundane tasks, by NOT trashing talking about them to the other neighbors?

How can we love in action?

Let's pray: Dear Lord God Almighty, we humbly come before You this day with thanks and praise!

We love You Lord.  Thank You for calling us beloved, worthy, forgiven, and empowered by The Holy Spirit to walk out our gifts and calling day by day.

Lord please teach us how to love those around us in a positive life giving way. Help us to shine Your light in such a way that others see our good deeds, hear our words, and glorify You!

Thank You Lord Jesus, Amen.
