Love Required Here

Holy Spirit. You love us, and we are called to love You and our sisters and brothers too. Jesus, please teach us how to do that well.

Matthew 32:27-29
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

Jesus, You even went so far as to say "love your enemies"

My God, You are love. Teach us about love. Yes You have been teaching me about love as I work in the hospital. There are rooms where the people do not look very inviting, or the room smells bad, the injury is bad; no matter, You say “Go in that room” and I go. Just taking a smile and Your love in with me brings a responsive smile in them. Sometimes it’s a conversation that leads to talking about You. Sometimes just listening unburdens their heart. And I leave feeling a love connection with that person. It is such a blessing to me. Thank You for the privilege of working there. 



You have taught me that no matter my first impression of people, they are all Your kids and You love them. We are called to love them too. Father, help us to see the good in people we encounter, and to know how to connect with them. In Your Word, the Bible, I watched Jesus heal the lepers even though their disease causes disfigurations. You healed the poor and the wealthy alike. Nothing stood in the way of Your love. You answered the “good thief” on the cross with a promise of heaven that day, because he recognized who You are and asked forgiveness. No matter what kind of life people have lived, be it crime filled or love filled, if they come to You accepting Your sacrifice for them, You forgive them and grant them an eternity in heaven.



You are not looking to punish the bad deeds that sinners do, but to call them to accept the gift You planned for their salvation. Our job is to help them see that You love them so much, Your great desire is to bring them home for eternity with You! Your heart weeps for those who refuse to accept Your Son’s sacrifice.

Lord I ask for the ability to love people as You love them. Holy Spirit, You are our indwelling mentor; teach us. Bring us courage to do whatever You ask. 


My friends, all of us are called to love God and our brothers and sisters as ourselves. True love of self is recognizing who we are~ we are children of God, our Creator Father and He considers us His beloved. We are the treasure of His heart. That’s why He sent Jesus to suffer and die for us to pay our sin debt. It was a legal requirement if we were to be able to spend eternity with our God of perfect goodness.
