Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - April 04, 2008
Our devotion for today comes from 2 John 1:6 (NCV) "Love means living the way God commanded us to live. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is this: Live a life of love."
Wherever you are today, meditate on this; life is all about love. Because God is love, the most important lesson He wants you to learn on Earth is how to love. It is in loving that we are most like Him, so love is the foundation of every command He has given us: "The whole Law can be summed up in this one command: 'Love others as you love yourself.'
Learning to love unselfishly is not an easy task. It runs counter to our self-centered nature. That's why God sent the Holy Spirit to help every believer in Jesus the Christ. That's why we're given a lifetime to learn it with the help of the helper.
Have a blessed loving day!
