this day...

Before you go about your day, take a moment to consider what God's Word says about LOVE...

  • Love is patient.
  • Love is kind.
  • Love does not envy.
  • Love does not boast.
  • Love is not proud.
  • Love does not dishonor others.
  • Love is not self-seeking.
  • Love is not easily angered.
  • Love keeps no record of wrongs.
  • Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth.

My dear Christian friends,

God is our Father and we are His children.
Jesus is the vine and we are His branches - reaching out... extending our limbs to welcome others in.
He invites, "Come, dear ones!  Come and know my LOVE!"
THIS DAY... let's choose to make good on His invitation.
May we nestle in His truth and encourage one another as His restored, His redeemed.
Let us no longer be estranged to this magnificent Savior, but rather make our hearts His home - receiving His NEW life and building up God’s beloved family.

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. (118:24)

We are children of the Most High King and heirs to His throne of righteousness.
We are the forgiven who can’t help but bloom with possibility and hope as we obey our Father's good Word and showcase the full technicolor of Jesus’ gorgeous, perfect, beautiful LOVE!

  • Love extends mercy.
  • Love displays grace.
  • Love nourishes.
  • Love always points to righteousness.
  • Love is holy.
  • Love is joyful.
  • Love encourages peace.
  • Love is timely.
  • Love is good.

THIS DAY we walk in faith believing His promise.
We enjoy His satisfying fruit and obey His perfect laws.
For, there is no room for hate in His presence.
There is no future for human failings or defeat in our Savior's Name.
He has promised us victory!
He is able and willing to free us of every bondage!
He has overcome all danger so that we may live full.

  • Love is pleasing and beautiful and it’s fragrance enriches the soul.
  • Love offers refuge.
  • Love forgives.
  • Love is honorable.
  • Love restores.
  • Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
  • Love builds up.

Let us be strong and courageous, Believers.
Let's stand firm and rest assured in our God's omnipotence and grace.
Do not be afraid.
Do not be discouraged,
For the LORD God, our good God, is with us... forever!
He will not forsake.
He is constant, dependable, and in full control.

THIS DAY believe your Shepherd and be restored in His pastures.
And... love one another.
Do not love merely with empty words or speech - for that is not how Christ loves us!
Rather, let us follow His example and joyfully deliver His Holy Holy Holy Name!
ALWAYS rejoicing in our Father’s authority and living in His full praise.

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. (1 John 4:7-12)

  • Love is noble.
  • Love is generous.
  • Love is pure.
  • Love is honest.
  • Love brings clarity.
  • Love never, ever fails.
  • Love never, ever leaves or forsakes.

This is the law of God's kingdom: to love Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength... and to love others as ourselves!
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love!
THIS DAY is the day to choose His love and rejoice!

OK... go get it, gobble it up, and give it away!  WOO HOO!
