Encouragement To Love Others

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. {1 John 4:7-8}

The behavior of a true believer, should characterize love. More specifically Christ like love. It is an irrefutable fact that your attitude toward people will determine their attitude toward you. If you are constantly critical in your love toward others, you create a barrier or separation rather than a spiritual unity. Our attitude to love others should be Spirit produced, and Spirit led and as the Holy Spirit leads us, Jesus Christ our Savior is glorified. To see other belivers is to see them with a love for a family member. To look at others outside of the family of God, is to see them with compassion, for they are lost without any hope beyond this life.

Always remember, We love God only because He first loved us, and He loved us so greatly, so very much that the price He paid for our ransom was with the life of His only begotten Son. By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. {1 John 3:16} Here is the standard of love that ought to be practiced to reflect real genuine Christianity. Christian love is self-sacrificing and willing to give.

Whom can you love today? May God bless your walk!
