We’re beginning a four-week online bible study called Loving Well by Beth Moore. If God has been dealing with you about loving others, then this is the right bible study for you. We’re going to learn about loving people who are a joy to love, people who are difficult to love, and people we have no desire to love. We’re going to learn to love all the people God has placed into our lives. Let’s take this journey together….

As I was thinking about the Bible Study ‘Loving Well’ I was reminded of my struggles to be loved, to love others and of accept the concept that God loves me! I know we all struggle with that issue one way or the other, if you say you do not, then great! That means you are filled with love and it is being shared with all people!
When I get in those moments of where I do not feel love, where I do not want to be loved, and where I do not want to love others – then I know in my heart I am not focusing on what God has called us all to do; which is Worship!
I love what Beth Moore said about this, “We will never love one another as well as we can until we deepen our understanding of God’s love for us. Only God can daily reveal that to us. That is where worship comes in to play.”
Each day we should start our day and end our day with worship to the Father! To the one who created us to worship and love on Him! Our worship welcomes God’s presence to come into our hearts and allows us to surrender to Him so that we can love well!
My prayer for each of us in this Bible study is that we will see as Beth Moore puts it “God is just not the perfect model of love; He is perfect love.”
