Topic: Let Your Love Grow [Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Devotional 15 August 2019]
“We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.” – 2 Thessalonians 1:3, NIV
God’s desire is to see you grow and increase in every area of your life, especially in your love for others. That’s because love is the greatest thing, and it is all that matters in eternity. At the end of the day, at the end of our lives here on earth, love is what will last forever!
Notice this verse tells us that love and faith are connected. It says in another verse that faith works by love. Love isn’t about feelings and emotions; it’s about the choice to treat people the way God tells us to in His Word. We are never more like God than when we are walking in love—when we are being patient and kind; when we are extending grace and mercy and forgiving others the way Christ has forgiven us. The more we know Him, and the more we know His Word, the more we will walk in love.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Today, I pray that your love will continue to grow and build a solid foundation for your faith. I pray that through your connection with the heavenly Father, you are strengthened in all of your relationships as you move forward into the life of blessing He has for you!
