Today’s Bible Love Verse, Daily Devotion and Scripture Prayer are here for Tuesday March 3, 2020, to teach you to love and grow your Christian faith using the word of God .
Today’s daily Bible love verse comes from the book of 2 Peter 1: 5-7 (NIV)
The Bible reveals that many Christians were initially imperfect people who became great teachers of the steadfast love of God.
The daily Bible verse from the scriptures yesterday spoke of love as a form of bargaining chip. But promising to love others is difficult, and it’s easy to fail.
There is a little bit of hypocrite in all of us. The Bible speaks of unconditional love, and the reason we need such forgiving love is that no one is perfect.
The diet you promised to follow but broke for a piece of cake. The time you said you’d drink water all day, or go to a party, but didn’t show up at the last minute … there’s a character flaw in each of you. we.
But there is hope in love and this is one of the reasons why it is so important to research your Bible daily and ask questions about your faith. Sometimes the message of hope is strongest in the person struggling to overcome their own hypocrisy, because not only is that person at war with the world (in the hope that they don’t reveal it), but it is also in the heat of the moment. in a war against oneself.
To love God is to struggle against our own proud nature which limits our ability to fully love others, which is the greatest commandment of all.
The great men and women of the Bible who carried the gracious message of God’s love to the rest of the world and wrote the Bible also had human faults.
If God can show them his love and teach them a lesson in unconditional love, imagine what he wants to do in your life as well?
This is what the Bible teaches us that love is according to daily devotional study and today’s Bible interpretation 2 Peter 1: 5-7 for Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
The fulfillment of the gospel of Christ through the Patron Saint, the Apostle Peter who wrote 2nd Peter proves that God loves imperfect people.
Have you ever struggled with your character flaws? Of course you have. I, too, have personally wondered who could ever truly love the real me, unconditionally when all my faults were exposed.
And, when my worst side comes out with pride, I’d like to say I’m ashamed, but anger sometimes makes it hard to see the truth in yourself – like Peter.
Peter was a liar. Peter promised to stay by Jesus’ side, then when he got the chance to prove how loyal he was, he betrayed Jesus Christ not once, but three times by denying even knowing him, before Jesus was not crucified on the cross.
Pierre was violent. When Jesus told his disciples not to fight when he was to be taken by the soldiers into the city for his trial which would eventually lead to the crucifiction, it was Peter who drew a sword and cut off the ear. one of the centurions.
Pierre was proud. Peter did not have the heart of a servant. When Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.
Peter stood aside, and yes, this is the same guy who refused to submit to Jesus and wrote that we should all submit to God’s authority later (John 13: 8) . His intentions were pure, but they also revealed control issues.
Peter was having control issues. He didn’t want to see Jesus humbled, but that was the whole point of Jesus riding the donkey to Jerusalem, (Matthew 21: 7) and later dying naked on the cross, like a shameful criminal (John 19: 16-30 ).
What does today’s Bible verse teach us about love and grace regarding our worst character traits?
According to today’s daily Bible devotion and love verse, grace heals anger.
Anger was a classic symptom of the apostle Peter’s personality deficits. Anger is a sign of character flaws in a person. If you’ve ever talked about someone’s faults, you’ll likely be faced with anger, denial, and sometimes fear first.
In fact, these are the main symptoms of the apostle Peter’s character problems. Who is the apostle Peter? He became a great servant and teacher used by God. Peter is the one Christ said the church of God would be the rock on which the church was built.
These two books were written by the apostle Peter who knew Jesus during his lifetime, and they are instructions for lay people in the Christian church.
According to today’s Bible Devotion and Love Daily Verse, your faults have a purpose.
You don’t have to start in a specific location or social status to like other people. Peter shows us that you can teach others how to be a better person by using your own flaws as a point of reference.
Pierre was a fisherman. He was not very educated. Yet it was his rough edges that smoothed out over time that provided a powerful testimony of God’s work in his life.
Peter’s lack of education would make him the least likely candidate to write two books that would become the core of an entire world religion. However, the two books of the Bible that teach character and how to choose men and women for leadership roles in the church were written by Peter.
However, anyone can be a writer when you write what you know. Peter understood how difficult it was to overcome your personal hypocrisy and fatalistic personality traits, as he was pretty much the king of failure in this area.
According to today’s Bible Devotion and Love Daily Verse, love makes you a leader.
He wrote books on how church leadership should be because (in my opinion) he was none of that. He wanted to set the bar for an ideal he could never achieve, but with God’s help he could try to leap and reach the goal.
The apostle Peter writes about spiritual discipline in the Bible to help Christians grow in their faith.
Not all good coaches were necessarily star players. Some coaches are good because they see what others don’t and they know how to motivate others to achieve their best version of themselves.
They know how to break things down into small parts in order to help others manage their strengths and minimize their weaknesses.
This is why 2 Peter 1: 5-7 reads like an instruction manual: “For this very reason, do all you can to add kindness to your faith; and to kindness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and self-control. , perseverance ; and to perseverance, piety; and to piety, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. “
You have to grow in faith because when you have faults you cannot see your goodness hidden under your faults. You have to borrow the eyes of God’s love to see it purely in you.
You need knowledge. Being aware helps you understand how to change. It’s hard to change what you don’t clearly understand. Because every flaw has a root that comes with an emotional trigger, it’s part of a mindset.
You need self-control to fight this state of mind every day. Changing the way you think is not an overnight process.
Ask any top motivational speaker like Les Brown, Tony Robinson or Mel Robbins, or even Brené Brown – they’ll tell you it takes years to figure out how your inner self works.
According to today’s Bible Devotion and Love Daily Verse, love requires persistence.
Being a Christian is an uphill battle that takes tenacity, courage and effort.
But, the moment you think you’ve done it all yourself, then you come back to pride, which comes back to box 1 of this process. This is why Peter said to add godliness to your work.
And tons of love. Mutual affection from others is a sign that you are doing well and that things are working out. We are a people born to be in community, and without the others, there is no reciprocity of love.
