Christ showed His love for us by willingly sacrificing His own life so that we might have eternal life: “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
We, as Christ’s followers, are challenged to share His love with kind words on our lips and praise in our hearts.
Just as Christ has been and will always be the ultimate friend to us, so should we be Christ like in the kindness and generosity that we show toward others, especially those who are most in need.
When we walk each day with Jesus and obey the commandments found in God’s Holy Word, we become worthy ambassadors for Christ. When we share the love of Christ, we share a priceless gift with the world. As His servant, we must do no less.
Lord, sometimes this world can become a place of busyness, frustration, and confusion. Slow me down, Lord, that I might see the needs of those around me. Today, help me show mercy to those in need. Today, let me spread kind words of thanksgiving and celebration in honor of Your Son. Today, let forgiveness rule my heart. And every day, Lord, let my love for Christ be reflected through deeds of kindness for those who need Your healing touch.
I Jesus name I pray
And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all.
1 Thessalonians 3:12
A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings disaster on himself.
