Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 06/03/12

The week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”     (2 Cor. 13:14)

We know that it is only by God’s unmerited favor and compassion shown to us through His son Jesus Christ that we are forever saved. Because of His ever-loving kindness and mercy, in spite of this fallen world, in spite of ourselves, God gives us grace. He shows us His love through the sacrifice of His one and only son; such love is sacrificial grace. To truly have love for and fellowship with others we must love others above ourselves: we must serve others without expectation of return; we must have the grace to love without being loved in return. Share His grace with those He sends you to, share His love and mercy.

May the Lord give you the gift of being able to be gracious and loving to all around you.
