And may the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow and overflow, just as our love for you overflows. May he, as a result, make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy as you stand before God our Father when our Lord Jesus comes again with all his holy people. Amen.1 Thessalonians 3:12-13 (NLT)
I want that: a heart that is strong, blameless, and holy as I stand before God when Jesus comes again.
This Scripture reveals a starting point for having that kind of heart: a love for all people. But where do I get a love like that?
This Scripture also reveals the true source: It is Christ who makes our love for other believers—and for all people—grow and overflow.
Lord Jesus, make our love for all people this kind of love. And, as a result, make our own hearts strong, blameless, and holy.
