While the Bible calls Christians to live by faith and not by sight, most people rely too much on their feelings. When you’re in a good mood, enjoying life and loving others is easier. However, if you let your daily circumstances dictate how you act and behave, love tends to die. In today’s song by Lacey Sturm, she sings about her desire to awaken love.
Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God’s love for us), 1 Corinthians 16:14.
While visiting the Church of Corinth, the wealth of Christians persuaded some to have ulterior motives for loving. This is the reason for the warning in the passage above. Everything you do should be inspired by love. If you want to be true to God, love should be awakened so you can pass it on to others. Knowing what the Bible says without applying it daily is meaningless. Therefore, may Lacey’s song inspire you to awaken love today.
