As I Have Loved You

“This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. ” John 15:12

Take a moment and think about those words from Jesus…”as I have loved you.” Then ask yourself, how has the LORD loved me?

As much as you want to stay angry and resentful, or as much as you want to be impatient and give up on people who are trying, remember how God has loved you. Has He stayed angry with you? Has He held on to your past mistakes? Has He been impatient with your growth and development? Has He ever disowned and disinherited you? Has He ever not loved you? The answer to all of these questions is an emphatic, “no”. He has been faithful even when you’ve been faithless.

When you feel incapable of loving others, it’s an indicator that you aren’t receiving God’s love for yourself. Those who struggle with forgiving others, struggle with receiving God’s total forgiveness in their own lives.

As He has loved you daughter of God, love each other. As He have forgiven you, forgive others. As He’s been patient with you and your growth, be patient with others.

When we see the sun, we expect to see its light and feel its warmth. When we see a believer in whom the Spirit of God dwells, we expect to see God’s light and feel the warmth of His love.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking directly to my heart about Your love. I am deeply grateful for how You have loved me. I receive Your love and I pray You help me show it to others today. When I feel empty of love, help me remember to come to You and be filled to the overflow. I pray Your love is seen and felt through my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read John 13:34; 1 Corinthians 13)
