ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 28 February 2020
Love like Jesus
Scripture reference:“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” – John 3:16 NKJV
Love is a decisive and intentional act. It leaves the spheres of emotional rush and euphoria into a deliberate decision to GIVE. Give time, money, energy, mercy, forgiveness, compassion and much more without expecting anything in return. The apostle Paul puts it that LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things
You see, Jesus showed the greatest act of love when there was no likelihood of us reciprocating it. He knew that we were most likely going to shove it in his face, but guess what; He did it still.
He died for us.
We need to understand that it isn’t loved until it is given away without hopes of getting it back. It is not loved until we decide to forgive before knowing what the offense is, let alone receiving an apology.
Let’s make a decision today to love as Jesus did. It’s easier when we acknowledge that we enjoy eternal life today, all because “God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son”.
Further reading: 1 Corinthians 13.
Prayer: Lord, help me to love my neighbor just like you love me. I receive grace to overlook hurt and forgive as Christ did for me.
Confession: I confess today, that the love of God resides within me; I declare that I am like Christ. Yes! I am a love being.
