S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
“John the Beloved” made it very clear that the men Jesus called and loved at the beginning of His earthly ministry were with Him at the end. The greatest statement is that Jesus loved THEM until the end of His ministry here on earth.
Probably the best thing you and I can do is to always “Finish What We Start.” It wasn’t enough for Jesus to start loving people. That’s fairly easy for most of us to do. We meet someone and start loving them. By loving I mean we befriend them and try and stay in close communication. But how many times have you continued that friendship from early in life until the present? That’s what Jesus did. With all of their flaws, Jesus loved those He began loving until the day He ascended into heaven. And … His love was deeper than friendship. It was an unconditional love until the end. Jesus’ message to you and me today is, “Finish What You Start.”
It’s my desire today, with Your help, to always finish what I start. Help me to love well to the end. Amen
