Today's Verse: 2 Thessalonians 1:3

Wednesday, February 9, 2022

We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.
— 2 Thessalonians 1:3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Increase my faith, O, Lord." "Increase my strength." "Increase my wisdom." We often pray for these things, but when is the last time you thanked God for your love increasing? Can you think of anything more exciting to say about your church than to say, "The love every one of you has for each other is increasing!" Let pray and act to make it so!

My Prayer...

Holy God, may your love so fill me so that I can fully share love with those that I meet each day. May this love grow and increase so that others may readily see its benefits and recognize that it is a direct response to the lavish love you have shared with me. Through the power of your Spirit, help my love increase! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
