Love one another; as I have loved you (John 13:34).
The love of God is an empowering, purifying force that can help us change for the better! This morning I read this quote by John H. Groberg that gave me renewed motivation to draw the love of Jesus Christ into my heart and life so I can be strengthened: "When filled with God’s love, we can do and see and understand things that we could not otherwise do or see or understand. Filled with His love, we can endure pain, quell fear, forgive freely, avoid contention, renew strength, and bless and help others in ways surprising even to us. His love knows no barriers. He invites us to follow Him and partake of His unlimited love so we too may rise above the pain and cruelty and injustice of this world and help and forgive and bless." He first loved us so that we can love each other and RISE ABOVE the world. Let's rise up together!
