Devotions for June 1, 2017

JOHN 15:9-17

9 “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. 10 When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! 12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

DEALING WITH PEOPLE

It is impossible to separate our faith from how we deal with people. Jesus cares deeply about how we treat other people.

PERSONAL REFLECTION

Q: What has Jesus commanded us to do?

Q: It’s easy for us to love our friends, our family, and those who are good to us. Whom is it difficult to love? Why?

Q: How would your daily life look different if you focused on loving those who could not do anything in return? What would your actions speak?
