Jesus is our example in every way. He loved us so much He died to save us from the consequences of our sins, and eternal loss. We also need to learn to love….By dying to the selfish nature that places our own needs and desires above those of others that touch our lives. In our families we have ample opportunity to practice the Lord’s example set before us. The Holy Spirit will help us when we choose to do as our God desires. Lord, help us to choose to do the good, right thing even when it hurts and it feels so wrong!
Love Never Takes a Vacation
Love never takes a vacation; God displays His love on every side.
His creation shouts “It is good to be alive.”
Love extends itself in the sunshine and in the rain.
It is evident in every place; even in great pain.
Love offered His life to pay the debt of sin.
There was no greater pain than what was endured by Him.
Love said, “Forgive them they know not what they do”
His love is so generous; He still shares His love with you.
Love fills your life with His breath.
Love follows the faithful even unto death.
When you become weary, love will revive and give you strength.
When you are thirsty, love is the sweet water for you to drink.
When you are hungry and become thin,
He will place you at His table and will feed you again.
The world has a darkness that is very black it’s true;
But one act of love will light the way for you.
Evil and hatred is on every side,
But they flee when in love you abide.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
