Happy Monday! Last week we were challenged to ask God to soften our hearts and to pray for those who are difficult to love. Today’s verses continue with living in the light.
“If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is still living in darkness. Anyone who loves a fellow believer is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.” 1 John 2:9-11 NLT
Father God, we thank you for exposing our weaknesses. Thank you for another opportunity for us to understand that you want us to live in the light. Lord, continue to work in us – soften our hearts, direct our thoughts in this area. Lord, help us to see where we fall short of loving our fellow believers and continue to change us. Lord, as we prepare for this day, help us to be a light in darkness. Strengthen our faith and remove all obstacles that hinder us from loving others. Lord, make us more like you. In Jesus name, amen.
Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
