24/7 DOXA Content , 1st July LOVE, TRUE MARK OF A DISCIPLE

2021 Thursday
FOCAL TEXT: John 13 vs 35
►► ”By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”.~| WEB |

GLORIOUS greetings, Cherished one. As vital as prayer, fasting and fellowship are, Jesus didn’t use any as a yardstick to determine real disciples. He rather used LOVE as a metre to measure true disciples. Love is as powerful as God Himself because God is love. In our focal text, Jesus reveals that love exhibited will cause people to know His disciples. Note from our focal text that He is not talking about “inside love” but love that is expressed in both words and deeds. Love has an attitude; love has a language.

You express love in your words by speaking truth to your neighbour. Also when your words are seasoned with salt and bring edification to others as stated “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you should answer everyone “(Colossians 4:6). Ephesians 4:29 also affirms “You must let no unwholesome word come out of your mouth, but only what is beneficial for the building up of the one in need, that it may give grace to those who hear”. When you are wrapped in God’s love, you will always mind what you say, how you say it and when you say it. You don’t talk to people anyhow.
Jesus says if you keep on showing love among yourselves, then are you His disciples. Speak the truth in love to one another. Don’t slander; refuse to backbite; Encourage one another; don’t pull anyone down to rise up for true disciples of Christ possess and exhibit persistent love even when it’s not convenient for them. *Beloved, if you are walking in hatred against someone, free yourself with love.* The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Ever-Loving Father, I thank You for pouring Your love abroad in my heart to show to one another. I take advantage of Your love in my heart to love the brethren in word, truth and deeds in Jesus Lovely Name Amen !
Pray that God’s Spirit would keep on energizing to walk in love towards others.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
Enjoy A Glorious Thursday
