Today's Verse: 1 Thessalonians 3:12

Friday, November 12, 2021

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
— 1 Thessalonians 3:12

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is love. God is also the source of love. He pours love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). So how do we make our churches, our families, our small groups, and communities more loving? We pray for God to grow the love in those in groups, let them know that we are praying that prayer for them, then communicate and demonstrate our love to those very same groups.

My Prayer...

Father, use me to help be an example of love to those around me. Please pour your love into my heart through your Spirit and then channel that love out of my life to others. Please help the loving spirit in our our congregation grow more and more, not just to each other, but also to those around us who are not part of your Kingdom family. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
