Don’t run from tests and hardships, brothers and sisters. As difficult as they are, you will ultimately find joy in them; if you embrace them, your faith will blossom under pressure and teach you true patience as you endure. And true patience brought on by endurance will equip you to complete the long journeyand cross the finish line—mature, complete, and wanting nothing. James 1:2-4D

In order to fulfill this commandment of Jesus we must receive God's love and grace for ourselves first. Do you know how much God loves you?I mean really know the love of God?
For years I didn't. I thought in order to be righteous - I had to do something. The truth is there is nothing we can do, we just have to accept the truth that what needed to be done to make us right with God and others was done by Jesus on the cross. Our job is to receive this precious gift of love - the gift of salvation which Jesus died to give us.
We can't give what we have not received for ourselves first. When you truly receive God's love you will become a conduit of His love which will naturally flow from you and then you will be able to fulfill your highest purpose in God. To love others as He loved you.
Happy Valentines Day!
