Made in the Image of Love…

Today is Monday. We begin every Monday with prayer.

Father God,

Thank you for watching over us. We love you and praise you for your continous care. Continue to hide us under the shadow and protection of your mighty wing. Be our guide and our shelter. May every family affected by the hurricanes find hope in you. May we, your people, be your ambassadors of love as we help our brothers and sisters around the world. We love you, Lord. We thank you for your faithfulness toward us. Continue to remind us who we are in You, in Jesus name. Amen. 

Sixteen years ago today was the terroristic attacks of September 11, 2001. During the tragedy, the country joined together as one nation and every stranger became our brother and sister. 

This month, parts of the country has been ravaged by hurricanes. Once again every stranger has become our brother and sister. 

This tells me two things…

1. Hate is a learned behavior.

2. We have the capacity to love on a great scale.

John 13:34-35

New International Version (NIV)

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Genesis 1:27

New International Version (NIV)

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

We were made in the image of a loving God. Every characteristic God has, we have as well. That tells me that when difficulties come we forget all of the hate we have been taught by humans and we automatically revert to the loving people we were made to be.

Hate is a choice. Love is in our Spiritual DNA.

One of my favorite quotes of all time is, “Remember who you are.”
