Hello Sparrow’s Song Family,
I am so overjoyed that we made it through January! Thank you for taking a journey toward BOLDNESS in the Lord.
We are not done with BOLDNESS yet! February’s Embrace the Word theme is BOLD LOVE!
Jesus said, “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12). This commandment challenges and inspires us to BOLDLY demonstrate Jesus’s selfless and sacrificial love. His love is bold and radical, and ours should be, too!
So many of us suffer silently. We desire love, not necessarily romantic love but AGAPE love- that self-sacrificing love. How can we boldly share the love of Jesus with one another? How can we boldly share the Love of Jesus with the world?
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). We may not be called to physically, like Jesus, lay down our lives for our friends, neighbors, or even strangers. But we are called to lay down our will in service to others. AND, we can lay aside our pride, hurt, selfishness, greed, or whatever it is and just LOVE. Jesus made the greatest sacrifice for us. What will we do for others?
So, this month, let’s EMBRACE THE WORD! Let’s dive in and explore the BOLD love that Jesus has for us, and let’s LOVE LIKE JESUS!
Also, this month, I urge you to intentionally uplift someone with the love of God each day throughout February. It’s a BOLD LOVE and Encouragement Challenge, and I’ll be alongside you!
