Happy Sunday friends! I have shared a similar post with you before but I think we need reminding of John 13:35, “For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.”
God measures our lives by how we love and it’s easy to love people who think like us and act like us. It’s easy to love people who love us.
What about the people who are different than us, the people who are not kind to us, the people who have hurt us?
True love is demonstrated when we show love to those who haven’t acted so lovely. “We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 NIV
In the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan, he wrote, God’s definition of what matters is pretty straightforward. He measures our lives by how we love.
This week make an effort to show more love…to a prodigal child…to an estranged relative….to someone who has treated you unkind.
Let’s strive to love like Jesus and leave a legacy of only Jesus!
