Begin today by writing the memory verse three times.
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
2 John 6 NIV
Don’t forget to practice the spiritual discipline, Hugging Jesus. When obedience feels painful, consider what Jesus suffered for you and give Him a spiritual hug by obeying.
Read John 15:13-14 again today.
What kind of love did Jesus show for us?
How did He lay down His life for His friends?
What identifies us as Jesus’s friends?
Jesus doesn’t ask us to do anything He hasn’t already done. He makes the way before us and provides the Holy Spirit to equip us for His call on our life.
Read Galatians 5:22-23
What is the fruit of the Spirit?
List each aspect of the fruit and how it equips us to love like Jesus.
Ask God to grow you to be a friend of Jesus by increasing the fruit of the Spirit in your life.
