40 Days of Reflection Day 8: February 26th

Day 8Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellow-man has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8).

Only one person has ever loved his fellow human beings perfectly and so fulfilled the law. That man was called Jesus. We don’t follow His example to earn His favour but to express our thankfulness to Him. And if we are to grow in our love for our neighbours, we need more and more of His Holy Spirit to show us how to do this. We can only love in His strength, not ours.

Before you get busy today, spend some time asking for the help of the Holy Spirit to love like Jesus.

If you want to reflect further, consider the two greatest commandments Jesus gives in Mark 12:28-34.
