e34 Love Not Religion

“When Jesus said “love your neighbor,” He knew your neighbor would act, look, believe, and love differently than you. It’s kind of the whole point.” -Toby Mac

Ponder the Text: Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. -1 John 4:1, NLT

Prompt for Thought: Where are you replacing love with religion?

Prayer for the Journey: God when we as Christians forget to love, please lead us back on the pathway of Love. Remind us that the greatest call on our life is to love God, neighbor, and self. Without love, we cannot imitate Christ. Please don’t let us forget this. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
