In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
Jesus invited His disciples to love one another with Christ-like love, encouraging them to demonstrate abundant life in their actions. We demonstrate our love for one another by reflecting Christ’s self-giving love to those around us, toward the promised end when death is no more and we experience eternal, abundant life in God’s presence.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer asking God to show you how to demonstrate His love to others today. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
