Let Love Win

Everybody likes to win. And it’s okay to win, depending on what you mean by “winning”… If your goal is to win the argument with your spouse before you’ve even begun, you’ve already lost. In John 17:20-21, Jesus prays that his disciples would be one. His prayer for our unity is not just so that we would feel good about ourselves, but unity is intended to be a key marker of our identity in Christ. Our unity is a way for us to prove to the world that Jesus is real, and he is relevant. The Greek word for unity (Phil. 2:1-4) doesn’t imply uniformity, but rather like-mindedness—like-mindedness in our disposition of humility and love. Jesus’s prayer for us is simple, but is very hard to do: let love win. In every conflict and in every conversation, if your primary goal is to let love win, everyone wins.

Other texts in this message: Luke 6:27-28, Philippians 2:1-9

Pray the Peace Prayer over yourself each day this week.

PRAYER OF PEACE
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, union;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master,
Grant that we may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen
