Daily Devotional – Love Like Jesus Loves

By on August 6, 2020
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from John 15:9-13. In order to remain in the commands of Jesus, we need to love. Love not with earthly feelings and desires, but with the same Love that Jesus gives us.

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 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. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Are you ready to die for me?

Jesus has told us to love each other in the same way that He loves us. He went on to say that His love would drive Him to die and sacrifice Himself for us. If I am to love you, in the same way, that Jesus loves me, then I should be ready to die for you as He did for me.

I often talk on the subject of love. Love is the most powerful commitment that we can offer another. Not the “love” portrayed in Hollywood movies, but the love of parents, marriage, and life long friends. Society and Hollywood have done a great job in perverting love and the definition.

“Love is the act of placing another’s needs before your next breath. To love is to sacrifice wholeheartedly!”

We can not use the word love unless we are willing to add death to the sentence. Acting in any way is not love and is most likely motivated by selfish desires and wants. 

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, God, that You died on the cross for me Jesus. Thank you that when You said that You loved me, that You backed it up with an exclamation mark on the cross. Help me to truly love my family, friends, and even enemies. This way, You will be glorified and Your kingdom will come.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
