Good morning.

It’s hard to love someone else unconditionally, much less multiple “someones.” And we might naturally fear others can’t love us that way, either. So perhaps we hold back, afraid to fully expose our heart.

God invites us and longs for us to experience intimacy with Him. In John 15:15 Jesus calls us His friends: "I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends ..."

If we are completely open with Him and fully trust that He loves us unconditionally, we can love others better.

The Lord will teach us to see people the way He does, as beloved children. We will then become more understanding and be able to extend the grace and mercy we ourselves have received. 

Today we have a wonderful opportunity to put this level of intimacy with God into practice as we join with fellow followers of Christ in worshipping Him. He has promised: "Come near to God and he will come near to you." (James 4:8)
