John 14:23-24 (MSG)
23-24 “Because a loveless world,” said Jesus, “is a sightless world. If anyone loves me, he will carefully keep my word and my Father will love him—we’ll move right into the neighborhood! Not loving me means not keeping my words. The message you are hearing isn’t mine. It’s the message of the Father who sent me.
Scripture: John 14:23-24 MSG
Observation: There is a relationship between being unloving and blind. If you see something happening and don’t do anything you are unloving. Similarly if you are choosing not to look at problems out of convenience you are being unloving. Being love is God’s will and his command. If you look at the NIV it talks about listening and obeying God’s commands and how that relates to having Jesus truly living and reigning inside of you.
Application: Strive to be loving in all things. It’s hard sometimes to see so much need and feel helpless, but a kind word, smile, or listening ear can be just as good as financial help and provision for someone in need.
Prayer: Jesus, please help me to remember that I have eyes to see. You live inside me and therefore you expose things to my attention and bring situations into my vision. Please help me to do your will and show people your love without my selfishness or inconvenience being in the way. In Your name I pray, Amen.
