It's so great to be back! How I've missed you all and have missed doing the devotionals. I'm glad though that I had time with family and watched as God moved mountains and cleared old valley's in a miraculous way. Was so healing! Hallelujah! God is so Awesome!! Thank you Papa!! ;-)
Oh and you all were so precious with your messages to me while away. We did get to pray for one another which was beautiful! Praise God for His love and presence! In Jesus Name.
As promised, here is today's scriptures. It's a long one but well worth the read and prayer over. Have a blessed evening everyone and again for being a blessing in my life by allowing me to pray and share God's love messages with you. In Jesus name. ;-)
For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother's were righteous. Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence. If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.
Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. The one who keeps God's commands lives in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.
~1 John 3:11-24
