God IS love. The heart of Jesus is as John wrote many years ago:
“As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.”
2 John 1:6
Jesus could love perfectly because He IS the source of love and He speaks to me today of our need for Him at work in our lives to help us love. He is at work in our hearts always as His Word says:
“It is God who works in you to will and act according to His good purpose.”
2 Philippians 2:13
Every person in life has different needs and different ways that they desire to be loved. What works for one person is different for another?! It takes the Spirit of Jesus working in us that is ours through faith in Him to help us love well and be willing to lay down ourselves in the ways He asks us to in order to love others as ourselves. Loving someone well begins by seeking Jesus in prayer for His discernment. As we step through the Christmas season, it is good to be prayerful over the relationships in our lives and seek our Father’s thoughts about how best to love. We know loving others is His will – it is His very nature!!! The biggest thing that matters is His love in all of life!!! Oh, I just love that thought!!! Here is a song for us to have a listen to, that you may know you are loved, dear saint, wherever you are in the need for love. Much love to you!!!
