Daily Bread 11/21/2023


Daily Bread – November 21, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Colossians 3:14 – And above all of these love, which is the bond of perfection. Love is first in the list of the fruits of the Spirit; and when it is allowed to rule us, joy and peace will be ours as well (Galatians 5:22). The Greek word used here for “bond” literally means “the middle item that joins two or more things together.” Love is the bond that fuses our actions with God’s (1 John 4:7-21). Love causes our hearts to be knit together with one another, which then results in an ever increasing manifestation of the glory and power of God in our lives collectively and individually (Ephesians 4:15-16; Colossians 2:2) Imagine what a blessing God’s saints would be if they were clothed with love, allowed the peace of God to rule them, and were always giving thanks (John 13:35; Ephesians 5:1-2; Colossians 3:15; 1Thessalonians 5:18). If we are going to walk in love, then we need to be clothed with the humility of Jesus. Too often, our own selfish interest takes over and all consciousness of responsibility is totally abandoned.
