June 11–Come On! We DO Know!

Do you ever wonder what God is asking you to do? How you are supposed to act? How you are supposed to interact?

Come On! We DO know! Our God has made it perfectly clear in many ways!

LOVE the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.  Deuteronomy 6:5

…LOVE your neighbor as yourself.  Leviticus 19:18

…LOVE your enemies, do good to them.  Luke 6:35

LOVE each other as I have loved you.  John 15:12

This is My command: LOVE each other.  John 15:17

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly LOVED children and live a life of LOVE, just as Christ LOVED us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  Ephesians 5:1-2

…since God so LOVED us, we also ought to LOVE one another.  1 John 4:11

So! We really DO know what we are supposed to do. We really DO know what God is calling us to do. And NOW, it is absolutely essential that I ask THOSE TWO QUESTIONS–that I always have to ask myself:

Do you believe it?

What are you going to do about it?

Will you—will I—LOVE others with the grace and the truth, the compassion and the forgiveness, the power and the possibilities that come ONLY through the LOVE that is given through Jesus Christ our Holy and Loving God?

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
