Jesus, thank you for your words:
Jesus, it’s a simple concept, but it is so against our nature to live this command out in everyday life. Holy Spirit, remove our selfish hearts and replace them with your own. Help us to react in love when we are wronged. Even down to our thoughts, Lord, renew us with your love.
God, there are some of us praying this prayer that haven’t experienced the fullness of your love. You say, “As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Holy Spirit, break down walls right now and soften hearts. Fill us all with the fullness of your 1st Corinthians 13 love. Your love is self-sacrificing and healing. We receive that love right now. Let it burn into our hearts and purge them of selfishness and hatred. In Christ, we are made new right now. Thank you, Jesus. We love you.
