“Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world.”
[1 John 4:4]
Today, the car may not start, the pipe may burst, the boss may do me wrong, but let me not forget that Your Spirit lives in me, and that I am called in these moments of trial to stand out in the crowd.
I pray that, as you desire to be united with Christ, you may also desire to be united with the members of the church. May you share the same spirit and purpose as your brothers and sisters in Christ. May you contribute to the strengthening of the church by encouraging, edifying, and instructing your brothers and sisters. May you also welcome encouragement, edification and instruction from them. Most of all, may you show you are one with them through your love, for this is how all men will know that you are a true disciple of Christ.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [John 15:13]
Helping a friend in need may be just a simple act of kindness, but the importance here is about relationships. We don’t necessarily think about “maintaining” relationships but rather directing our time to things that matter to us. Take a break from your busy life and think of a starving relationship you can feed. It could blossom into something so beautiful only God could have touched it.
