Posted on 02/18/2014 6:23:33 PM PST by Vision
"We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing." (2 Thessalonians 1:3, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Gods desire is to see you grow and increase in every area of your lifeespecially in your love for others. Thats because love is the greatest thing, and it is all that matters in eternity. At the end of the day, at the end of our lives here on earth, love is what will last forever!
Notice that this verse tells us that love and faith are connected. It says in another verse that faith works by love. Love isnt about feelings and emotions; its about the choice to treat people the way God tells us to in His Word. The more we know Him, the more we know His Word, the more we will walk in love.
Today, I pray that your love will continue to grow and build a solid foundation for your faith. I pray that through your connection with the Father, you are strengthened in all of your relationships as you move forward into the life of blessing He has for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for loving me and transforming me into Your image. Search my heart and mind today. Help me to love others the way You love me in Jesus name. Amen.
