Time and time again the scriptures talks about loving God, and loving others as we love ourself. Truly, the mark of Christ upon your life is the love you have for His creation. Loving your wife, your husband, kids, siblings, parents, friends, and family is easy enough. But loving people you don’t even know and wishing for them good as you wish for your self is a step further and it can only be of God!
I must say that love is an anchor, for Christ Jesus is love himself. If you are a believer and you don’t give a shoot about anyone other than those closest to you, check yourself. You may be deceiving yourself and far from being Christ’s
Hebrews 6:19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain. This is Jesus and he is LOVE!
1 Corinthians 13:13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Love of God in your heart will get you through any difficulty. You will overcome and triumph over all kinds of evil with love.
By this the world will know that you are my disciple if you love one another. John 13:35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love for one another, not only for those in your household, but for those from without, and even the so called gentiles and children of perdition.
The chaos we see in establishments here and there including the Church is because of lack of love. Ego, selfish desires, and ambitions can never reflect Christ’s love, rather it reflect the flesh in its unbrokenness, which is of the devil.
