“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” (1 John 4:7)
Our Savior summed up the commandments with the admonition to love the Lord and one another. God is love and in that we have love for one another, we show the truth of God’s presence through our lives. Love is not a feeling, but the doing of what is right in the sight of our Lord. Those who are in the Lord know right, for the Lord Himself is there to guide us into all truth.
My problem Lord is that I do not listen to You. You speak, but I do not like what You say. Help me, I pray, to move beyond myself, give up and lay down my life at the cross that I may live for You and the Holy cause You have given me through the Gospel. Lead me to live, speak and act in true love, being a reflection of Your love in the world knowing that You are working all things together according to the Father’s purpose.
Lord Jesus, I need You to lead me today and everyday in Your way of truth. I must decrease and You must increase. Help me, I pray to see in You and through You every action I should take. Keep my mind clear that I may hold fast to the truth You have spoken and no matter what happens around me, cling to You above all things. Lead me, my Savior, to be Your disciple who does the Father’s will. Amen.
