Love Like He Loves You

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. (John 13:34-35)

Love is not just a feeling. It is an action. Jesus tells us that others will know us by our love..

He also tells us that we ought to love one another.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 reads: “Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

True love in action puts the needs of others before our own.

It doesn’t retaliate when someone hurts us.

It is kind, giving to those who don’t always deserve it or may not have earned it by your definition.

True love is selfless, not self-serving.

How might you show love today to someone in your life today?

Who in your life needs a glimpse of God’s love, regardless of whether you think they deserve it?

When I read this devotion it blessed me. I felt it needed to be shared time and again. We all need this reminder, Love is patient and kind. Lord, help us to love like we have been loved.

Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
