In 2016 be an instrument of unconditional love

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing (1 Corinthians 13:2 NIV).

unconditional love

Father,

Thank you for the love that you show to each of us every single day. It far supersedes the love of any human being. Thank you for the unconditional love that you had for us from before time began.  Before we were even considered possible, before our births you loved us just the way we would be.

  • But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

Thank you for the emotional stability displayed in your love for us it erases fear of everything:

  • There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18 ).

Yet you gave each of us mothers to take care of us. Some of us you have given the joy of being a mother to children whom you have placed in our lives. Provide us with the ability to love them as you love us and the willingness to chastise them as you chastise us. For whom the Lord loves he chastises!

We are priceless in your sight.  Even in our state of sin and dismay.  You love us so much that when a hair falls out of our heads, you know it.  We are the most invaluable part of your creation.

  • But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows (Luke 12:7 )

Your love is boundless, unconditional and never ending and that is the love we want for our children:

  • spiritual children – the people whom we serve and disciple
  • physical children whom you have placed in our physical care.
  • For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on the (Isaiah 54:10).

Give us the ability today to glorify you in all that we say and do, and forgive us when we misstep and displease you with our thoughts and or our tongues! Show us how to love each other as you love us.  Let each day that we live be filled with your glorious unconditional love

 

amen
