Love Check-Up

And now I show you the most excellent way
1 Corinthians 12:31b

love"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another" (Rom. 13:8). Prepare your heart for praying for your family. Let God search your heart toward them with this love check-up. Love deficit hinders effective prayer, because you are not free to have the mind of Christ who loved all people enough to die for them. Faith without love is not effectual, because faith works through love (1 Cor. 13;2; Gal. 5:6).

Lord, make 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 live in me!

Are you loving your family as Jesus does? If not, confess it as sin, repent and receive God's forgiveness and grace (1 John 1:9). The Father's love is our source (1 John 3:1). Jesus is our model (John 15:13). The Holy Spirit makes it real (Rom. 5:5).

Now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Cor.13:13).

Love IS All You Need
