"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters."
1 John 3:16

As we go about our daily lives, our common experience regardless of our station is most frequently a choreography of the seemingly endless complications of life. In the midst of all the goings on, it is always a refreshment to me when something is simple, straightforward, and trustworthy. Knowing that the love of Jesus is readily accessible, always present, and indisputably real, is an anchor of simplicity that renders peace amongst the chaos that can be life. Further, the demonstrated love of Christ through his death burial and resurrection anchors me in the reality that love comes solely and specifically from God. If I seek to have authentic love in my life, my only source is God. As I continue to learn to be tapped in to the source of love, I will then be able to give that which I have received to those around me.

Father I pray and ask for your love to be alive in me and in all of us. Thank you that your love is present and available to meet our needs.
