We should love one another, just like Jesus love us.
Thank you for sharing Father help me remind me of this verse every day
Heavenly Father I Praise You and Thank You for Loving us First choosing us first. Please Father Bless and teach us to always lead with Your Love, to see and Love one another as You Jesus see and Love us. Though Lord we fall short of The Glory of God, I Pray Father You will Bless us to become more like You and less like me/us. Thank You Lord, in Jesus name Amen
Help me to digest this lesson Lord. Help me to love those who annoy me rather than develop a critical attitude for failure to meet my standards. Lord help me to remember You have given us a new commandment.
This is the hardest commandment , I realize that only God the Spirit can achieve this in my life. Also when I stop to remember all the hurts I’ve caused , yet I’m forgiven by our Savior,!!! It’s then I’m more able to forgive.
Virginia, we ALL need help with this. John, the "Beloved of Jesus" recognized Jesus Love for us as the greatest Love on Earth. Peter spoke of his Love for Jesus until after he denied Jesus 3 times and Jesus completely forgave him. He then asked Peter to lead his sheep. Peter finally realized how great our Saviours Love for us is. No greater Love has this world ever known. Jesus is our great example. Like Father, Like Son😇 Praying for us All to learn to Love more like Him.
Father, Lord in Heaven We ask that your Holy Spirit guide us to Love one another as Jesus Loves us. As you Love us. And to grow our Love greater for You. To See ourselves as you see us, as the Righteousness of God in Christ, so that we may Love ourselves. Thank you, Abba In your mighty and Holy name, Jesus Let your Will Be Done On Earth as in the Heavens Amen
Are say amen to that and we bless the lord to day
I can relate to this for sure!!
Yes very much
Thank for the message. I choose love.
Thank you, Lord, for loving me before I knew You. Amen.
Lord remove my critical human nature and replace it more and more with Your Godly nature of loving praise every time I attempt to choose to criticize. In Jesus name I pray
Thank you for this. These are challenges I encounter in my spiritual growth to love others regardless. God help me, the way put out in the scriptures it could not be more clearer than this. Amen
