Life of Love

Every day is a new day - and along with the joy and excitement each day brings, there can also be unexpected change and uncertainty. No matter what obstacle the devil throws your way, instead of getting angry, frustrated and throwing up your hands in despair - choose to be like Jesus and handle each challenge with grace, dignity and love. Jesus set a wonderful example of how to live a life of love! No matter how tired He was, He always treated people with kindness, and respect. He spoke in gentle tones and was tender to the people who pushed and shoved just to get next to Him. One day the crowds could be clapping, cheering and waving palm branches - and then just a short time later - throwing sticks, hurling stones, and yelling “crucify Him!” Whether the crowds loved Him or hated Him - He was always gracious, humble and kind in return. He didn’t just “preach” love - He lived it! The Bible says in Ephesians 5:1-2, “ Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Text: Philippians 2:5,7, Matthew 11:29, 1John 4:19, John 1:17
