This verse is the epitome of love, in that, Christ calls us his friends and willingly lays down his life for us.
Let’s commit to laying down our gossip, giving our friends the opportunity to work it out, and choosing to live a life of great love －the life that Jesus calls us to live.
As followers of Jesus, we can trust that there is a purpose, that he will show us the glory of it even.
Glory is the word that the Bible uses to explain what it’s like when God shows up. It’s magnificent, other-worldly, excellent, breathtaking…
I’ve found that when I ask God day by day for direction in all things, he is able to reveal his glory, goodness, and faithfulness, because I give him the space to do it.
If we believe that God is real and that Jesus has overcome death on our behalf, then Easter holds the most beautiful, magnificent, glorious truth!
As I've been challenged to love actively this month, the perfect illustration just waltzed right into my kitchen one day after school.
What if sometimes the most loving thing we could do for a close friend is to challenge them in an area where they fall short, or hurt people?
You are loved by the God of the universe. He gave his very life to give you a new life, a true life, one that is connected to him and purposeful.
Before I met Jesus, my life was a mess. I tried so hard to keep it all together, but I really was without purpose or real direction.
