Sunday: 1 John 4: More on Love. God IS Love. His Love casts out ALL fear and causes us to love others. It is not possible to love God and not love others, but it is possible to love others and not love God. This is where His Spirit within us helps us discern between that which comes from God, and that which doesn't.
Monday: 1 John 5: Not only is God Love, but in Him there is LIFE. He gives Life to those who believe in Jesus Christ and will lead, guide and protect His children through life's battles. Yes there will be battles, but He is on our side. We are also called to pray for others we observe sinning. Note - PRAY for them... "If you see a fellow believer[d] sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life."
Tuesday: In 2 John 1, there is an exhortation to continue walking in the truth, which is to hold on to the faith and belief that Jesus came, lived, died, rose again and now lives within is - causing us to live by Love and walk in truth.
Wednesday: From 3 John 1 I learn God desires we be strong BOTH in spirit AND body. Our body, now God's temple, is to grow strong, just as our spirit within Him grows strong. One is not to be ignored over the other.
Thursday: Jude 1 devotions remind me to not take the grace of God for granted. It is easy to begin again in a way that is more pleasing to myself, rather than pleasing to and the will of, God. Praying and praising the Lord in in spirit and truth keep me close to His heart, and allow my feet to be continually directed by Him.
