The Face of Love

The Face of Love

For an example of true love, simply look to Jesus and the cross. His life reveals what it looks like to put someone else’s interests before our own, to value others and their well-being to the extent that we choose to sacrificially serve them at their point of need. As God’s self-giving love transforms our hearts, reshapes our perspective and teaches us to love like He loves, we, too, are empowered to love and serve others for their good and God’s glory. Who is God calling you to love in Jesus’ name?

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. —1 John 4:10

Prayer: God, thank You for putting a face on love, for showing me what it looks like to love unlovely people. Give me opportunities to express Your love to others as I serve them with an eye to their good and Your glory, like Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
