Advent Study Day 9

Scripture: 1 John 4: 7-8

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Observation

  • Love one another. This is how we show God’s love.
  • Love comes from God. You can’t truly love another person unless you know and love God.

Application

  • Love one another.  It seems like a simple, command. But how should we do this? Put others before ourselves (just like Jesus did). Be willing to help others when they need it. Be loving and compassionate, full of grace, forgiving… build people up instead of bringing them down.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, love one another seems like a simple command. But loving can only come through you and your Holy Spirit. I ask that the Holy Spirit guide me and convict me to always put others before myself. To show me how I can show your love to others. And to provide the opportunity to be a blessing for those around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
