Today's Verse: 1 Corinthians 13:6-7

Monday, February 12, 2018

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
— 1 Corinthians 13:6-7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Always love — pretty tall order and pretty tough stuff. Only God is always. But then Christians are fueled to an always love through the Holy Spirit! Elsewhere, Paul tells us that "The love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us." (Rom. 5:5) No wonder this love is always — it is God's love, demonstrated by Jesus' sacrifice, and delivered by the Holy Spirit!

My Prayer...

Sweet and Glorious God on High, I humble myself before you recognizing your boundless power to love, the incredible need for love in the lives of those around me, and my limited ability to love. Please pour your Holy Spirit into my heart and fill me with the power to love as you do, always. In Jesus' sweet name I pray. Amen.
