To love completely, we need God’s help, because, by nature, we are not love. But He most definitely is.
“With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27
As this week gets kicked off, let’s try to remember the importance of abiding in Christ as we seek to do everything in love, with love, and through love.
This (abiding) comes through prayer, time spent in the Word, fellowship with other believers, and daily surrender, trust, and exercising of our faith in HIM.
As we abide in Christ, we then know Him more, and we will become more like Him. And this enables us to love the way that He does.
“Do everything in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14

This week, may we continue to abide in Him, and look to Him, and in turn, love like Him.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. (John 15:1-10, ESV)
The poetry is beautiful!

Thank you, and I hope you are being blessed in Jesus today, friend!
Funny how the Spirit moves through us when we are open. I went to a bible study this afternoon & we discussed Gods love. It married with what you shared Annie! Hugs
