Serve One Another in Love

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14)

Precious one, you are a child of the King. You are royalty. You serve a servant King. I came to seek and save the lost. I saved the lost by giving my life in exchange for theirs. You were lost when I found you. You had wandered away from the fold. I came to save you. I gave my life in exchange for yours. Will you now serve me and give your life to me? Will you bear the cup of sacrifice? Will you give up your dignity for the sake of mine? Will you proclaim me to the world? I am the Way. I am the only way to the Father. I am the Truth. In a world full of deceit, I shine light into the darkness. I am the Life. In me, you will experience a life full of my perfect peace.

Come near to me and I will come near to you. Remain in me and I will remain in you. You are my child, my heir. All I have belongs to you. I love you unconditionally. Will you love me more than everything? Will you love others in the same manner that I love you? Will you lay down your life for your friend? Will you lay down your life for me? That simply means that you regard others greater than yourself. You make me your top priority. Your own agenda is replaced by mine.

In your humility, I will lift you up. In your devotion, you will be exalted—not by the world’s measure, but in heavenly proportions. You are blessed to be a blessing. Encourage another as I have encouraged you. Serve one another in love.
