The love of God will be perfected within the one who obeys God’s Word. 1 John 2:5

We experience true intimacy with God only by walking in the footsteps of Jesus—loving others as He has loved us. Through all of the hurt and the brokenness. Even when they don’t reciprocate, even when they don’t deserve it, even when they reject, criticize or withhold love themselves—Love loves them anyway.

God’s love is so imperfect in me that my only hope is to stay so close to His love that I am filled with love’s fullness. To do the impossible. To love the unlovable. To lay down my life for my friends.

If you keep my commands, you will live in my love . . . My purpose for telling you these things is so that the joy I experience will fill your hearts with overflowing gladness! So this is my command: Love each other deeply, as much as I have loved you. For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all. John 15:10-12

Who are you struggling to love today?

Where have you given yourself permission to not love someone God has asked you to love?

Ask Father God to give you His heart for the one you struggle to love, then step out in obedience.

Abide in the presence of joy love brings into your heart.
