40 Days of Compassion - Day 42 - Do the Deeds of Christ
Begin your time with God in prayer.
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
Recite as much of Mark 12:30-31 as you can.
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
"By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked." 1 John 2:5b-6
Jesus has shown us how to live a life of love. If we seek to walk the way He walked, allowing His Spirit and His love to shine through our lives, we will be fulfilling Mark 12:30-31.
Apply God’s Word to your life.
