[The Glory Unveiled]
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. ( Romans 12:10 )
Love makes provision for a need before that need is realized. It is the nature of love to anticipate a need and make advance provisions for that need. Now, we are admonished to be devoted to one another in love. Devotion is allegiance (loyalty) to a particular course or person; the total abandonment to a particular person or agenda to such an extent that it is almost as if one is a slave to that other person. Hence the apostle Paul calls himself a bond servant of Christ. In other words, he had pledged allegiance to Christ. He was sold out in service to Christ. The Scripture further adds that we honour one another above ourselves. We must regard other people with respect and importance. Humility is the environment that affords us the opportunity to honour other people because pride breeds dishonour. We must commit to one another in the body of Christ, so that the fragrance of the Love of Christ may be perceived by outsiders. Devotion through loyalty keeps us together in love. Let us commit in love. It is a decision that when made, the Holy Spirit will empower us to honour.
Prayer_Bead: Lover of my soul, King of my heart, thank you for your word. Awaken the spirit of love in me. Help me to be devoted to my neighbour and my partner. In Jesus name.
