Verse of the Day

Colossians 2:2

I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself.

Colossians 2:2

A Deep Love

Paul had such a deep compassion for others. He just wanted others to know the passionate love the He had for God and that God had for him. He had been someone who had followed all of the rules and laws and persecuted others for their faith in Jesus. However, the law will never fulfill; only Jesus can fulfill. After Paul came to know the saving knowledge of Jesus, he saw everything in a new light. He understood so much more about the Christian life. His passion for others was ignited inside him.

Can you say the same about yourself? Do you want others to be encouraged and knit together by ties of love? Do you have complete confidence in their understanding? If not, spend some time in prayer today about how you can love others in this way.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Thank you for loving me in such a deep way. May I love others in that same way. Amen.
