The way of love

How can we learn
To tell your voice 
From ours, Lord?

Yours always guides us 
In the way of love.

How can we learn
To tell your will
From ours, Lord?

Yours always guides us
In the path of peace.

 ***************************

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21; NIV).

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children, and walk in the way of love (Ephesians 5:2; NIV).

I want your will to be done, not mine (Luke 22:42; NLT).

The morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace (Luke 1:79-80; NLT).

The wrong path

Love your neighbour as yourself (Matthew 22:39; NIV).

Love your enemies (Matthew 5:44; NIV).

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ (Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way (Matthew 7:13; NLT).

Love is the fulfilment of the law (Romans 13:10; NIV).

*********************************

There are many ways
To seek, and serve,
The Lord,

But unless they teach:
Love all,
Without exception,

In every thought,
And every word,
And every deed,

We can be sure
That we have chosen
The wrong path –

For love
Is the fulfilment
Of God’s law.

Peace

“Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace” (Luke 1:79-80; NLT).

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it” (Isaiah 30:21; NIV).

Travel steadily along his path (Psalm 37:34; NLT).


Lord,
Our hearts are full of sin,
And selfishness;
Of prejudice,
And greed.

Please guide us
To your path of peace,
And help us to walk in it
Each day.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Light

“The LORD make his face shine upon you” (Numbers 6:25; NKJV).

God is light; in him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5; NIV).

“I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the dark” (John 12:46; NLT).

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12; NIV).

Travel steadily along his path (Psalm 37:34; NLT).

…guide us to the path of peace (Luke 1:79; NLT).


Lord,
How we struggle
With suffering
And sin
In this dark world!

May your face
Shine upon us,
So we can walk
In your light,
And follow your path
Of peace.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
