How His Love Can Grow
"I pray that your love will overflow more and more and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding." Philippians 1:9 (NLT)
Paul, writing to churches of a city called Philippi in Eastern Macedonia, tells them that he prays specifically that their love will overflow and keep growing. He connects this idea with "in knowledge and understanding."
We need to see that our knowledge of Jesus and relational understanding of Him is connected to our ability to walk in His love toward others.
How well do you love others?
How well you love others is the result of how much time you spend with Jesus (relational understanding) through reading the Bible, prayer and hanging with other Jesus followers.
If your love toward others is lacking, it is because your relationship with Jesus is lacking.
The truth is when you walk closely with Jesus daily; His love will overflow in you and through you. The love you possess will be evident to others that you have been with Jesus.
My prayer for you today is that your love will overflow and keep growing as you hang out with Jesus and are increasingly aware of His presence in your life.
Ask Jesus to cause His love to bubble over from your heart to the people you will encounter today.
