Prayers by Pete: Love of Christ

Written by on April 17, 2017

Some people may deny that Christ was raised from the dead.

John 10:17 For this reason the Father loves Me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again.
John 10:18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.
Romans 1:4 Who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of Holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

The power of Christ lives in us.

Romans 8:10 And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness.
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,
He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of His Spirit who lives in us.
2 Peter 1:3 Seeing that His divine power has granted to us all things pertaining to life and Godliness,
through the true knowledge of Him who called us by his own glory and excellence.
2 Corinthians 13:4 For indeed He was crucified because of weakness, yet He lives because of the power of God.
For we also are weak in Him, yet we shall live with Him because of the power of God directed toward us.


Some people may turn away, but Christ hopes they all will return.

1 Timothy 4:1 The Spirit explicitly says that in the later times some will fall away from the faith,
paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.
Acts 2:38 And Peter said to them, repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
John 5:24 Truly, truly I say to you, those who hear My word and believe in Him who sent Me has eternal life
and does not come into judgement, but has passed out of death into life.


The only reason that Jesus was on the cross – because He loved us.

1 John 4:10 This is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:19 We love, because He first loved us.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.
1 John 4:16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love,
and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in them.

Our Lord knows us.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourself, it is the gift of God.
Romans 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor power,
Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Heavenly Father we are so grateful for your influence in our lives;  it is the “Love of Christ” that moves our hearts.
Humbly I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Please forward this so others may be blessed.
