Scripture for the First Friday in Advent

John 13:35 NIV

“By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Heavenly Father, You commanded us to love one another. You said this love for one another would show the world that we are Your disciples. Fill our hearts with love for all of Your Body. Empower us by the Holy Spirit to show this love in active service and support of one another. The enemy of our souls entices us to let others serve, to stay apathetic and comfortable. But we know Your Word tells us otherwise. Strengthen us to follow Your commands and not the enticements of the enemy. We pray in the name of Jesus, our Saviour. Amen.
