Luke 10:27 “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.'”
The word of the day is Love. With love all things can be accomplished. Jesus has asked us to love our God with everything we have, but not with words alone. Action establishes how much we truly love. If our love is empty then are actions wont be far behind. But if we love with everything we have then our actions will prove that. We cant just love someone who loves us like Jesus says in Matthew 5:46 “If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?” Loving someone who we know loves us back is easy because we know there will be no rejection. Loving someone who might not be fond of us on the other hand can be tough at first but if we continue to love and show that through action we can allow some people to see that we love everyone as our amazing God loves everyone. If we start to truly prove through our actions that no matter who it is we can love them as God loves us then we can start to give glory to God through our actions. People with hate for us that see us hold back no love will continue to wonder why someone they hate can still show so much love. Eventually they will see the work of God through us and be as amazed as we were the first time we realized how much God loves us. Today I want to challenge everyone to not only love the people who love you back but to love the people who don’t love you back and to pray that they feel the love through our actions. If God is our guide then we are on a path of love and love is what will flow through us. In normal daily situations where we used to be stressed and grow anger lets pray, worship, and most of all LOVE.
