1 Thessalonians 4:9 (KJV): But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 23 Oct 2023
The command to love your neighbour as yourself cannot be overemphasised. It is a pillar of faith in Christ and next only to the love of Jehovah. It is so important that it warrants being repeatedly drummed into the ears of Christ’s followers. The tendency to fall back to nurture the desires of the flesh is strong, so you need to be watchful and constantly submit to the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Heed Jesus’s injunction to watch and pray so you don’t fall prey to temptation. Let love drive your relationship with God and with others. I know this is not possible without the Holy Spirit, so I implore you to walk in humility and let the Holy Spirit mould you.
Pray: Father in heaven, help me to overcome the desires of the flesh and to love others as You do. #Mok
