Jack Hibbs (June-20-2022) Weekly Devotional: LOVE’S CHALLENGE
1 Peter 4:8 - “And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.’”
Here’s the truth — loving others is challenging. God designed it that way. Love, as He defines it, is meant to be a powerful witness of His character and His love. In the early Church, believers were a stark contrast to the rest of the world because their hearts were ablaze with love for one another. Now that’s easy when all is good and right in our corner of the world, but sometimes the greatest challenge to love comes when we’ve been wronged; when loving doesn’t seem reasonable. It’s in those times that His agape love flowing from us shows the world a better way.
What just might be the greatest display of love outside of giving up your life for someone, is for you to give someone your forgiveness. The Lord is not asking us to feel fervent love, but to live it. You may shout, “but it isn’t fair!” and you would be right. Love isn’t fair. Just ask Jesus. On the Cross, the innocent died for the guilty; definitely not fair, but incredibly powerful. When you’re caught in the middle of a conflict and you choose to love like Jesus, it reaches others at a practical level that words alone cannot. These words sum this up well: “Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary use words.”
The Lord is not asking us to feel fervent love, but to live it.
Witnessing to others isn’t the only thing that fervent love does; Peter promises that it “will cover a multitude of sins.” Covering never condones or excuses sin, but it does lessen its effect. And forgiveness brings freedom. Freedom to live life fully with joy. Now that’s something the world needs to see.
“Beloved, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:11

Jack Hibbs (June-13-2022) Weekly Devotional: BUCKLE UP
Psalm 16:1 - “Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.”
“Fasten your seatbelts!” came the command from the cockpit. Our captain had been informed by aircraft in our area that they had experienced clear air turbulence. As the flight attendant repeated his command, you could hear the obedient and collective clicking sounds throughout the cabin as we buckled up. Within a minute or two, the captain’s order paid off. We felt a little bump, and another, and yet another until we all began to hold on to our seats as moderate turbulence disrupted our otherwise boring flight.
The rough ride lasted nearly an hour and with every drop of the plane, a gasp was heard, followed by the captain’s words, “We should be out of this soon.” As we bumped along, he was careful to use words designed to bring comfort.
Listening to the captain, I wondered, is he stating a truth or expressing a desire?
“We should be out of this soon” could have been a cry of hope rather than a statement of fact.
Like my flight, life can become exceptionally turbulent, convincing us that we’re not going to make it. But the truth is, we have a Captain unlike any other. When Jesus says, “This is your Captain speaking,” His words carry authority and certainty. Therefore, we can say with the psalmist, “Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.”
A turbulent ride doesn’t mean we’re going down. It means there will be comfort along the way because Jesus will bring us safely to our destination.
