-Go-

In or efforts to be like Jesus we should strive to walk in love. Jesus is God, and God is love, perfect unfailing love. To love was His greatest commission to us, to be held in higher esteem than even our own faith or ability to hope.  The greatest thing we can do for someone else is to show them the unfailing love of God, to let His love shine through us.  Even when we fail, His love can shine through.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13

It seems like it should be such as easy thing to do, to love someone, to love everyone really. But, where He was perfect in love, we clearly are not. Sometimes it is a real struggle to show someone love. So sit back, get comfortable and be sure to come back here every day as I explore what scripture says about love, and discover new and different ways to walk in love every day.

For now, sit back and enjoy this song. Let it sink in. Let it touch the deepest parts of your heart.  Let it change you.

-Stop-

Jason Gray

Every Act Of Love

Sitting at the stoplight
He can’t be bothered by the heart cry
Written on the cardboard in her hand
But when she looks him in the eye
His heart is broken open wide
And he feels the hand of God reach out through him
As Heaven touches earth

(Chorus)
Oh – we bring the Kingdom come
Oh – with every act of love
Jesus help us carry You
Alive in us, Your light shines through
With every act of love
We bring the Kingdom come

There’s silence at the table
He wants to talk but he’s not able
For all the shame that’s locked him deep inside
But her words are the medicine
When she says they can begin again
And forgiveness will set him free tonight
As Heaven touches earth

(Chorus)

God put a million, million doors in the world
For his love to walk through
One of those doors is you
I said, God put a million, million doors in the world
For his love to walk through
One of those doors is you

(Chorus)

Oh – we bring the Kingdom come
Oh – with every act of love
Jesus help us carry You
Alive in us, Your light shines through
With every act of love
We bring the Kingdom come
With every act of love
We bring the Kingdom come
With every act of love
We bring the Kingdom come

 

Oh, the words of that song are so very powerful!  Speak them over yourself and your life.  Be one of those doors that His love walks through.

Reminder, this post is a part of write31days, a challenge to post to my blog every day in October, as well as a part of Kate Motaung’s challenge to write those posts in just 5 minutes.  In addition today’s post will link up to Woman to Woman Wednesday.

Godspeed,

Mollie ❤
