As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love. If you keep My commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command. John 15:9-14
Heavenly Father, thank You for reminding us that being in You is following Your ways and being obedient to Your Word. May our actions and words speak loudly as we walk in love with one another. Thank You for Your joy, a divine characteristic that is given through You. Joy is the result of knowing that the price of dying to our will holds the inevitable certainty of realizing the triumph of Jesus. For His delight, Christ is bringing His daughters into fellowship with the Father who have been made complete in Him. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
