The Evidence of Our Love

Read: John 14:15-24

It is easy to say, “Lord, I love you.” But it is a hard struggle to be obedient to Him at all times. Actions always speak louder than words. We can say that we love God but that love is made evident through our actions, how we are obedient to Him in our daily walk. Following His instructions is so important and crucial that Jesus stressed the point three times in John 14:15, 21, 23.


Setting Your Mind on Things Above

Read: Colossians 3:1-2

There are some people who profess to be Christians, but their personal lives deny the doctrines they profess to love and defend, especially when it comes to forgiveness. The truth is found in Rom. 6:8, which says, “if we have died with Christ, we also live with Him.” According to Rom. 6:4, we must walk in newness of life in Christ by stripping off the old self with its practices and motives and become clothed anew in Christ. When we live in Christ, we will approach daily life with patience, kindness, forgiveness, and by being good to others. As Scripture says, “whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is fair, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Phil. 4:8). Keep on doing them as they are from above. We must put to death anger, rage, wrath, malice, politics, and slander.


Repaying With Good

Read: Romans 12:14-21

There are times when we are angry when someone has spoken ill about us or done something to hurt us purposely. We tend to lash back against them, thus damaging a relationship or even our testimony as Christians. Sometimes as Christians, we might be persecuted for our faith. Christ showed that He was the perfect example of overcoming evil with good. Jesus forgave His enemies by dying on the cross for their sins. Jesus taught us to show the other cheek too if someone slapped on one cheek (Luke 6:29).
