Abide in Love

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 15:9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.

We abide through grace. We abide through obedience to the Word. We also abide in love. When we love someone we want to spend time with them. We want to talk to them about everything. We want to hear what they have to say about everything. We want to express our love to them and hear them express their love to us. Our question is are we doing all this to and with the One we confess to love? Love is not a thing we turn on and off. Love is a commitment. Love is true, loyal, and consistent. Take time to read the love chapter, I Croatians 13. Everyplace the word love appears, let’s insert our own name and see how we stack up in our relationship to loving God.
