Walking in love is an everyday opportunity to live a wonderful life, when we focus on loving people including ourselves in a spiritual and positive way we really get to see the greatness of God and the closeness of Spirit.
" Therefore, Be imitators of God ( Copy and follow Gods example ), as well beloved Children
And WALK IN LOVE ( esteeming and delighting in one another ) ...
Taken from Ephesians 5:1-2
So how do we walk in love?...
We firstly ensure that we understand God loves us, and then we ask God to show us how to walk in love everyday. Sharing not necessarily our personal love but Gods love to people.
It's not about you personally 'pretending' to be nice to everyone. It is about you showing them that God loves them and using that love that God has for you and placed in you.
How can you be kind, thoughtful and loving to people around you today?
What can you do to make someones day better?
The actual word of LOVE in this passage in the original text actually means- Divine Love a selfless love.
PRAY TODAY Ask God to fill you with Gods Love and ask God to show you or give you ways to help Walk In Love today.
To walk in love requires action, it is not something you can just hope to happen, you need to do something, no matter how small you think it is any step you take in love is a blessed one.
" Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers ( in the brotherhood- being friendly, cordial, gracious,... sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously), for through it some have entertained angels without knowing it "
Hebrews 13: 1-2
Firstly this scripture is not telling us to let in any stranger into our home, unless we really feel that from God.
But it does tell us to not forget, or neglect to show hospitality.
Perhaps there is someone in your family or friends or church or work that you have never asked over for coffee or to share a meal. Or if you would prefer take them out to dinner or for coffee.
It also reminds us to think of those who may be alone or not have many visitors perhaps we can ask if they would like a cup of tea or to be kind to them in some way.
To Let God use you today to show love by guiding you who to show hospitality towards or even to show you perhaps someone you have neglected or someone who feels forgotten.
