“May the Lord direct your hearts into [realizing and showing] the love of God and into the steadfastness and patience of Christ and in waiting for His return.”2 Thessalonians 3:5 AMPC
So this is the verse of the day on my You Version Bible app. I love it! I especially love the Amplified version here.
We need to REALIZE the love of God in our lives. I think in chaos of life, we take for granted Gods love. His love covers us. No matter the storm we go through or the sunny cloudless days, God is ALWAYS there.
We need to SHOW God’s love. It is not our job to judge, it is our job to love. The most simplest of teachings is in Matthew 22;
“Teacher,” he asked, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’”
Matthew 22:36-39 GNT
If we have the love of God in our lives, it’s easy to love others. It’s easy to love ourselves. Amazingly we have the power to show love our enemies.
“But now I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”
Matthew 5:44 GNT
So it’s all about love!
So take time to catch your breath & ask the Lord to direct your heart.
