Devotion Where Love Starts

How do I live in love? By loving others as Jesus loves me, sacrificially, recognizing real love isn’t centered on me. Real love comes from God and from hearts committed to serving Him.

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma.

I love when I let Jesus be the center of my existence, letting His love flow through me to those around me. I love because God lives within. Without him, my love becomes self-serving and selfish.

Jesus, help me love others by loving You most of all and allowing Your love to flow through me to those around me. Amen.
