Week 3, Day 1 (I need to let Jesus love me through others)

Romans 12:9-21

“Let love be sincere”

“anticipate one another in showing love”

“Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.”


-I must not twist the love that is being presented to me into what I would like it to be, or try to clean it up. I need to just accept it at face value and let it be.

-(anticipate= regard as probable, expect or predict). I need to assume that others (love, admire and respect me.) and treat them accordingly. Jesus is within them, and HE does!

-Be proactive in setting up a chain of positive emotions, by being faithful to the little things.


Day’s Message:

I need to approach others as if every person I come in contact with is an encounter with Jesus. Here’s my opportunity to not only love Him greatly, but also to fully be loved by Him through them, beyond apparent limits or my own preconceived expectations. He can out love me at every turn.

This was another big one for me. Again, I was familiar with doing for others as if for Jesus…but the idea that He’d somehow use them to bring love (grace?) back into my life is pretty amazing to me.
