Day 9: The Power of Jesus' Command

A very common question that is asked after I share on a Sunday morning is, “Do you feel that you miss out on the encouragement from sitting in a service?”  Whenever I prepare something to share with others, I continue to search and seek what God has on his heart for my audience. It always seems that no matter how hard I prepare for a sermon I always feel more blessed by what God has placed on my heart then the the people the message was actually for.
 
Our verse to remember from this chapter is from Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Just like the illustration I gave you about sharing at church on a Sunday, this scripture confims that Jesus takes whatever little we give him, and he does much more with it. This applies to all our areas in our lives such as finances, time, and especially love.
 
So as difficult as it may seem to show love at times, remember that Jesus commands us to act with love. He never commands us to do anything that he has not equipped us to do, and more importantly he never commands us to do anything he wouldn’t do for us.
 
VERSE:  “A new command I give to you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another” (John 13:34)
 
QUESTION: Do I ever feel like giving up on love?
