“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 15:9-11

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“As the Father has loved Me,

so have I loved you.

Now remain in My love.

If you keep My commands,

you will remain in My love,

just as I have kept My Father’s commands

and remain in His love.

.

I have told you this

so that My joy may be in you

and that your joy may be complete.”

.

– John 15:9-11 (NIV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus, as always, leads us by His own example

– He obeyed the Father,

and He and the Father are one,

united in love.

.

Jesus’ love for us is beyond our understanding

but the certainty that He loves us is the source of Christian joy.

.

This great love calls for a fruitful response on our part

and this should take the form of a fervent desire to imitate Jesus

and do the Father’s will in everything.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, You are the joy in my heart

– help me be more like You!
