Outbursts Of Love

Outbursts Of Love

13 July 2009

Scripture:

Think of ways to encourage one another to outbursts of love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24 NLT)

What Blessed Assurance God’s Word gives us in Hebrews chapter ten! Here is the assurance of Christ’s complete and for-all-time sacrifice for our sin, the assurance of our forgiveness and acceptance in Christ, and the confident assurance of our privilege of entering the presence of our most Holy God – all because of the once-for-all sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us.

No more sacrifice for sin is needed – ever! We are free and privileged to make sacrifices of thanksgiving – always!

If I can stay out of the “religion mode” where I still think I’m trying with all my might to win God’s love, my thankful heart will sometimes just “burst out” with love and good deeds. Not only will love and good deeds “burst out” in my life, but by my example I will encourage, exhort, and prompt “outbursts of love” in the lives of others around me.

Prayer:

Father, thanks for the assurance this morning of all that you have given me because of all that Jesus did for me. I ask for even more grace to leave religion out of it and think of ways to let “outbursts of love and good deeds” splash out of my life onto those around me. I want to experience such outbursts so I can be an example and an encouragement to others.
