Max Lucado Devotional 23rd February 2024: Agape Love

READ TODAY’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 23 FEBRUARY 2024 BY MAX LUCADO

TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE: Paul reminded the church at Corinth the kind of love Christ offers to us: agape love that “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (1 Corinthians 13:7 NKJV).

Don’t we need the same prescription today? Don’t groups still fight with each other? Don’t we flirt with those we shouldn’t? Aren’t we sometimes quiet when we should speak? Someday there will be a community where everyone behaves and no one complains, but it won’t be this side of heaven. So till then we reason, we confront, we teach. But most of all we love.

Such love isn’t easy—not even for Jesus. Listen to his frustration in Mark 9:19 (NCV): “You people have no faith. How long must I stay with you? How long must I put up with you?” How long? Until it kills me. Jesus bore all things, believed all things, hoped all things, and endured all things. Even the cross.

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Every single one!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF THIS DEVOTIONAL: Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and best-selling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

As a writer, Max is known for combining poetic storytelling and homespun humor with the heart of a pastor. All of his trade books began as sermon series at Oak Hills Church, and his sermons all begin with Max asking himself this question: “What can I say on Sunday that will still matter on Monday?” He’s been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, and “The Best Preacher in America” by Reader’s Digest.
