THE COURAGE TO LOVE
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Friday, 11th August, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(1 Peter 4:8)
_“And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
God’s love towards us is stronger than any mistake or character flaw we might ever exhibit. Our scriptural text today stresses that it is love that covers the multitude of sins.
For us as believers, being kindly affectionate towards other believers is our nature (Rom. 12:10). We are fashioned to cherish other believers as our own kindred in Christ so that even when a misunderstanding arises amongst us, we are never quick to cut off from one another, just like a mother would never do away with her suckling child. In letting love reign amongst us, we forgive those who hurt us, behaving like our Father whose love brought us forgiveness and the redemption of our souls. Glory to God!
Therefore, ask the Lord to fill your heart with more of His love today, and be ready to allow that love flow towards other believers as you let go of negative emotions towards them. Love is your nature, and so is forgiveness. Amen!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Papua New Guinea🇵🇬…
Though Christianity is the largest religion, effective discipling is the most urgent and prevalent need in this nation. Nominalism, pollution of Christianity with spiritism and occult are sadly widespread.
🙏🏼We are praying for the Christians in the land that they will not compromise their faith but stand firm in the Lord.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Father, help me to love others just like you do in Jesus name.
🔹 PRAYER OF REDEDICATION
Dear Father, I thank you for your mercies over me since the year began. I am grateful for your ever-abiding Presence in me and with me and I declare that my confidence is not in my own ability but in your Word. Help me to walk in faith throughout this month and to show forth your praises in all that I do. I consecrate my whole body, soul and spirit to you today. Let your Name be glorified in me in Jesus Name. Amen.
