The Importance of Love

The Importance of Love

Love is the essence of leading like Jesus. God’s love for us, demonstrated in Jesus’ selfless coming to do for us what we could not do for ourselves, opens the way into relationship with God. As God’s love is poured out into our hearts, its selfless and redemptive power transforms us. As we practice habits that draw us closer in our relationship with God, we begin to love like He loves, to lay down our lives in pursuit of His priorities and the people He loves. Let love lead you to selflessly lead like Jesus today.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8

Prayer: Jesus, in the midst of today’s leadership pressures, remind me of Your great love for me and for all people. Let Your love guide my interactions with others in order to selflessly serve them in Your name and for God’s glory. Amen.
