Spiritual Warfare: 'Proof We've Moved from Death to Life'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, August 14, 2023

If we love our brothers and sisters who are believers, it proves that we have passed from death to life. But a person who has no love is still dead. Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.
— 1 John 3:14-15 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, fill me with Your love. Help me to view others with compassion and concern. Help me to see others through Your eyes, especially those who haven’t yet accepted the fact that Jesus Christ is Your Son. Let them see Your love for them through my words and actions and emotions so they can come to realize what they are missing out on — You. Use my life as a weapon of love that pierces the defenses of those around me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
