And behold, a certain lawyer (expert in the law of God) stood up and tested Jesus saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" He said to him, "What is written in the law?" What is your reading of it?" So he answered and said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself." Luke 10:25-27
Within these devotions on love, I will attempt to share what God did in my life and how He changed my heart to not only love Him but my neighbor as myself! From the time He sent an angel to test me I had many chances to love the unlovely by laying down my life to give them a chance to live and to also love others!
From the day I was saved my heart wasn't perfected in love and it took years of trial and error and the leading of the Holy Spirit to train and equip me to love as God loves, not that I have attained it yet! But nonetheless, I will try and convey my journey of loving my neighbor as myself.
The above-mentioned scripture is what first opened the eyes of my spiritual understanding of God's will for His body. This is what I began to teach when God had to send an angel for some on the job training for me to learn and experience the love of God. I was about to learn who my neighbor really was!
But the lawyer, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" Luke 10:29
