Grow in God's Love

"Never stop praying." I Thessalonians 5:17 (NLT)

Last week we learned that to show God's love, we must first know it. I'm here to tell you that there is still one more important thing to do before taking action and that is connecting to God in prayer. We have the opportunity every day to grow in God's love.

We don't read the Bible so we can pass a quiz! We read the Bible so that we may get to know the God who made us and wants to connect with us each day. If our hearts are the soil and God's Word is the seed of knowledge planted within us, we are still in need of constant watering in order to grow and become all God created us to be. Prayer is God's way of taking knowledge and turning it into a relationship with Him.

Just as plants need more than just a one-time watering to grow, so our hearts need constant communication with God. We can come to Him any time day or night with any and everything on our heart. He is always happy to listen. Make sure you take time to grow in God's love through prayer.

What are some of your favorite ways to pray?

~ Santiago
