Made Perfect in Love

"God is love, and those who remain in love remain in God and God remains in them. This is how love is perfected in us..." -1 John 4:16-17

"We trust to love the Lord our God not only as we do now, with a weak though sincere affection, but with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. Indeed, we expect to be 'made perfect in love.' We look for power to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in everything."-John Wesley

Lord, help us to trust in your power and grace. Help us to love you with all our heart, soul, and mind. Grant us the strength to rejoice always and give thanks in everything. You are working and with you all things are possible. Amen.
