Topic: love right
Scripture: John 13:34
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
If I’m to ask you of one distinct trait that will make you identify someone as a Christian, what would that be?
I’m quite sure I will get one of these as your answer: devotion to the work of God, regular church attendance, intensity of prayer, dressing, attitude, ability to recite lots of biblical quotations and so on.
These are all good but there is one greater and it ought to be the trade mark of all Christians, without it you can’t call yourself a Christian and that is Love.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Love is the only thing that associates us with Jesus but it’s rather unfortunate we have limited it to a feeling.
I think Love is a doing/action word more than a feeling word, proof, John 3:16.
Love is when you see someone hungry and you feed that person and not just saying God will provide Or uttering words of encouragement and after pass by to enjoy that delicious meal you bought on the way alone.
We cannot claim to love God so much yet we are at loggerheads with our next door neighbors.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
If you treat others less than yourself then the message below is for you…
Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them.
Treat others well, let your words of love match your thoughts and action and by that others will see and give glory to your father in heaven.
1. Thank God for today, your life and this message.
2. Ask for forgiveness of sins.
3. It is only God who can teach you how to love right because He is Love, Ask that He helps you with that.
4. Thank Him for an answered prayer in Jesus name, amen.
