(PART 1)
 
According to Jesus, the greatest commandment involves loving God. However, we cannot love God by ourselves. We learn to love by asking God to love through us.
 
READ: Josh. 22:5; Ps. 84:1-2; Matt. 7:21-23; Matt. 22:37-40; Luke 7:36-50; Luke 10:38-42.
HEART ISSUE: God is the only true source of love. How have you been trying to love God in your own strength?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for including us in the love affair You share with Your Son. Open our hearts to receive Your love so that we may worship and know You. Amen.
 
(PART 2)
 
Love is the most powerful force in human existence. According to Paul, love never fails. When we persistently love others, hearts change and lives are healed.
 
READ: Ex. 34:6-7; Rom. 13:8-10; 1 Cor. 13:8-13; 1 Pet. 4:8-10; 1 John 3:11-24; 1 John 4:7-12.
HEART ISSUE: How is God's love distinct from what humans call love? Which one do you predominantly exhibit?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, we confess we need your love. Teach us how to abide in your love so that your power may flow through us to affect others. Amen.
