Daily Devotional for January, 2013
Love is a Fruit of the Spirit

Daily God Walk for January 2013

 

   Our daily devotional for this month is on the virtue of Love. Love has many meanings for all of us. There are the activities we love, the friend we love, the spouse or significant other we love… and the list is practically endless.

   This month our daily devotional theme is love from the perspective of our walk with the Lord. We’ll look into the love God has for us, the love we have for him and the love we are called to have for one another. Each week our devotions focus on a different aspect of love.

January 1-4 – Love… It’s the Command of God

   In these first days of January we are exploring the commands to love God and to love each other. We are also looking at the way love calls us to sacrifice and obedience.

 January 4-11 – Love is more than an act

   This week we are looking at I Corinthians 13 and the lessons taught there about how we are love. We explore being a resounding gong and a clanging cymbal. Then we look at how service without love produces little satisfaction. The other daily devotional titles are; Love is Patient and Kind, Love Forgets the Bad Stuff, Love Rejoices in Truth, Love Protects, Trusts, Hopes and Perseveres,  and finally, Love Never Fails.

January 12-18 – When Love is Tough… When Love is Hard

   Some of us have never considered the difference between love that must be tough and love when it is hard. Tough love is when we are holding someone  accountable and hard love is when it is not easy to love, but we love anyway.

The devotions this week are titled:

·        Tough love is holding myself accountable

·        Tough love is holding those under my care accountable

·        Hard love is loving the unlovely

·        Hard love is loving my enemies

·        Hard love is standing strong in adversity 

·        Tough love is loving friends who oppose us

·        Hard love is when it costs more than I want to give

 

January 19-25 – Who Should I love?

   This week we answer the question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” We also explore those we are commanded to love in Scripture: God, your brother, Love Neighbor as self, Love your enemies, Love your spouse, Love those who despise you, Love yourself as a creation of God.

January 26-31 – How Am I Commanded to Love?

   In these last few days of the month we are looking at the ways we are commanded to love. Scripture teaches that we are to love with our whole heart. We are to demonstrate our love by our deeds and out of love we show respect to others.

   Our hope is that the devotions for this month will inspire you to love as God loves, make you stronger in your commitment to him and call you into deeper spirituality.
