THE LAMP OF LOVE
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Psalms 119:105 KJV
God loves us so much that He gave us His Word as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. He also gave Jesus to us Who is our lamp of love. When we become discouraged because of going through dark valleys, Jesus shines His lamp of love a little brighter in our heart. O how our Saviour loves us.
If we have invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour, we need to let His lamp of love shine through us in everything we say and in everything we do. There are many people who are lonely, discouraged and hurting and they need to know somebody cares about them and loves them.
Joyce Landorf Heatherley, a Christian speaker and author, said on one of her teaching tapes “The people we sit next to in church look fine and they look darling, but inside they are hurting”. Let’s love others with the love of the Lord, the unconditional love that Jesus gives us every day.
May God help us to pray for each other and to be encouragers to one another. We especially need to encourage our pastors. A pastor said “Please pray for my wife because she is the one who encourages me when I am hurting”. Have you prayed for your pastor and family today? If not, please pray for them.
