"The Great Power of Love"
“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment.” Philippians 1:9
R.C. Chapman was a pastor, teacher, and evangelist in the 19th century. Some in his day referred to him as the “apostle of love”. Chapman is a good example of what the Apostle Paul is striving towards in his words to the Philippians. Essentially, we cannot overlook the power of loving one another. Paul’s prayer is that our love would abound…more…and even more still. We must pray for a super abundance of the power of love. Love can get side lined in the mix of schedules, deadlines, programs, and obstacles. R.C. Chapman said, “Though Christ can be grieved at a thousand things in us that no eye but His can see, yet none is so easily pleased as He by our little endeavors of love.”
- Almighty God, help me remember that I am loved by You. You surround me by Your love. Help me to love others in Your name.
