I had planned to go back to posting some of my own old stuff this week, but I decided to do one more week of “guest re-posts” before that.
One of my friends in the blogging world is Anne Lang Bundy, who describes herself as “ Ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ, wife & homeschooling mom of five, and writer.” She runs a blog called Building His Body with some pretty deep theological insights and thought-provoking posts, go check it out – her July series on the Names of God was awesome. I read a post on her blog in February this year called I Love You. It was posted on Valentines Day, and Anne has kindly allowed me to re-post it here as a Rainy Day Monday entry. I hope you like it, and I’ll go back into my own archives for something next week.
I LOVE YOU
My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. (1 Corinthians 16:24 NKJV)
“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.” (John 15:11-14 NKJV)
I cannot know how many people these messages reach. But as Paul did, I can honestly tell each one of you that I love you. If you belong to Christ I am your sister, I love you, and I look forward to spending eternity with you. If you are among those peeking in at His kingdom, I love you as the beautiful person God created, whom I hope to soon see.
And as long as God gives me the ability, I intend to lay down my life (my right to myself) and to love you as I pray for you and share God with you—His love, His person, His Word, His joy.
Heavenly Father, thank You for adopting me into such a big family. Thank You for the of Jesus that unites us. Please give us and increase in us Your deep love for one another.
