May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. 2 Thessalonians 3:5
The best way for a Christian to demonstrate their faith is to act as God acts. Our prayer should be that God would direct us toward others who doubt that God’s love is real and need to hear why it is unconditional.
Jesus Christ is the example of that unconditional love through how he became and endured the punishment of our sins, for our atonement and our justification before God.
If our goal, as Christians, is to strive to become a better example of Jesus to others in the world, we must want to do so through our actions as well as our words declaring God’s eternal love through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
May our prayer be to God, “Lead me to someone today where I may be an example of your love to them and where they may come to know the greatness of your forgiveness through Jesus’ death on the cross for their sins, so that they might become a new son, or daughter in Christ.”
