DEVOTION: “We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?” – 1 John 3:16-17
The examples are so numerous. Examples of Jesus teaching us not just verbally but in actions as well. Jesus gave up his life for us. We should do the same.
Such a compelling and convicting verse. Go, be Jesus in another persons life. Yeah but…..how?
Good question. A few responses.
Listening. Maybe just being there helps. Serving. We are called to serve others in Jesus name. Giving. How can you give today, not just monetarily, but in time, hope, mercy, grace. Love. Do you practice and preach love every day in other people’s lives?
The list can go on but this is meant to pose just a few ideas to get the conversation going.
Thoughts? Any of these something that you already do and take part in?
God, give us hearts to change. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear you in it all.
