Want a love note from God, courtesy of Sandhya’s new project, Liberating Love Devotional? Tuesdays on Twitter, Wednesdays on her website, Thursdays on Instagram, Fridays on Facebook, and SIGN UP for her to send you a devotion every Sunday!
2 Peter 1:5-8 For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual* affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Today I want you to write out a chart: faith← goodness← knowledge←- self-control←- endurance←- godliness←- mutual affection←- love.Each is undergirded by the one before it. And note that my servant wrote “increasing among you,” not just within you. This is a guide for your community. I want you to write what it would look like for love to manifest in your community right now, and how that would lead to mutual affection, to godliness, to endurance, to self-control, to knowledge, to goodness and ultimately to faith. And then I want you to write down your role in helping those things happen. You are a critical part of building my realm here on earth. May you be strengthened for that work today.
