With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to treat you to something special. So, I combined each blog post of my “Love Deeply” (1 Peter 4:8) series into an E-book. This will, hopefully, help us show people the love of Christ in our everyday lives!
The t-shirts I sell on my website with this verse and phrase on them originated here. Their story and purpose lies within the paragraphs of these blog posts.
Showing people the love of Christ is something I fail at daily. It’s really hard and, to be honest, I’m not that great at it.
I will be prayerful about my day and ask God to help me love those who bring out the actual worst in me…and then when the opportunity to love that person comes, I totally blow it and I feel horrible (PLEASE TELL ME I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE).
We absolutely CANNOT show people the love of Christ on our own.
We are all so very broken.
It is ONLY by the grace of God and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives that we are able to show people the love of Christ…somewhat regularly.
As difficult as it is to be consistent, sharing the love of Christ is something we as Christians should continue striving for.
And, in order to share the love of Christ, we have to first understand it ourselves. We have to live loved because the more we understand God’s love for us, the more we are able to share that love with others.
In no way whatsoever do I have all the answers…but I do hope that, in even the smallest of ways, by the grace of God, I will be able to love others a little better tomorrow than I did today. If I mess up, I hope to start over and try again.
This FREE E-book wasn’t written for perfect people who already do a great job sharing the love of Christ (LOL).
It was written by a totally broken person for totally broken people in hopes of helping us take advantage of the small opportunities to share the love of Christ that come our way.
