Day 60/365

(Jesus speaking) “This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.” (‭‭John‬ ‭15:12)

I saw this Scripture this morning and picking up on yesterday’s point, it hit me hard!

We can all say “Love one another…” And leave it there, but Jesus didn’t end it there. He ends the statement with, “… in the same way I have loved you.”

So, how is He loving you? What have ‘you’ come to expect from him?

Grace – even in the face of our constant and wilful sins?
Mercy – even in the face of our constant and wilful sins?
Forgiveness – even in the face of our constant and wilful sins?
Financial help – even in the face of our constant and wilful sins?
Non judgemental attitude – even in the face of our constant and wilful sins?
Etc., etc.

At that point Peter got up the nerve to ask, “Master, how many times do I forgive a brother or sister who hurts me? Seven?” Jesus replied, “Seven! Hardly. Try seventy times seven.” (‭‭Mat 18:21)

FACT – it’s hard (actually impossible), to be a Child of the Living GOD without the Holy Spirit’s help! ❤️
