Rosebuds of Faith Devotional Series: LOVE * Peace and Friendship (#1)

'For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, 'Peace be within you.'
Psalm 122:8

We all need friends and family. We want to love them, and we want and need for them to love us in return. There is no better way to do that and have that than to find peace within ourselves. And it only comes from Jesus.

When we are at complete peace, we are our most lovable! Yes, it's true! For when we experience the contentment and joy that come with peace, we are really who we are supposed to be. We have no need for walls, for hiding from feelings and emotions, no need to be cautious and always on guard against hurt. Our hearts will be cleansed from stress, and the love that fills us will pour out onto others. And when love comes freely and with no restraints, why, that is the best love of all!

Jesus loved with complete abandon. He cared not for what others thought, or what they said. He simply showed love with no bounds. Simply by watching the life of Jesus will we learn how to love like that....with truth, with life, with that wonderful peace!

Open your heart and mind, and allow Jesus to transform you into someone who is not afraid of love. For love is who Jesus is!
