Remain in My Love
14 Day Mindfulness Moments – Day 3 Daily Devotion
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
Read John 15:9-17
In 1 Corinthians 13:6-8, Apostle Paul reminds us that “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” That is who Jesus is. Jesus is love. He loves us as the Father loves Him. Jesus commands us to the same, to love each other as He has loved us.
Most people would define love as an emotion. The Bible describes love in terms of sacrificial actions. True and genuine love involves some level of sacrifice yet does not expect or demand something in return. Jesus said, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends (v. 13).” While we are unworthy of love, Jesus lavishes us with His unconditional love. How do you show selfless love to others? To love our neighbor means to follow the pattern Jesus set for us – to put the needs of others greater than our own.
Today, I challenge you to show unconditional love to your neighbor. Are you willing to accept the challenge?
Lord, help me to love my neighbor as you have loved me.
