[Jesus said,] â€œIâ€™ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, youâ€™ll remain intimately at home in my love. Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™ve doneâ€”kept my Fatherâ€™s commands and made myself at home in his love.
11-15 â€œIâ€™ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. Iâ€™m no longer calling you servants because servants donâ€™t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, Iâ€™ve named you friends because Iâ€™ve let you in on everything Iâ€™ve heard from the Father.
17 â€œBut remember the root command: Love one another.â€ Â Â Â Â Â John 15:9-17 (The Message)
I am battling a sore throat and aches today so I am going to take this time to rest. May we all have ears to hear Jesus when He calls us to work and when He says, â€œRest.â€ Jesus said the second greatest command was to love others just as I love myself. I am going to receive that love for myself today so that there is love to give away.
The song today is â€“ simple. I hope you find it restful and restoring.
All I Need is You, LORD written and sung by Hillsong United
