REAL LOVE IS ACTIVE
Christ showed his love for us by dying for sinners. He went all the way to the cross to give us opportunity for holiness and eternal life. Our love is real to the extent that we have imbibed this kind of Christ-like love. A love that makes eternal life present in us. Our actions edifies our neighbours and treats them as co heirs of eternal life by enabling their material welfare and spiritual good (1 John 3:14-18). Jesus teaches also that our love must not be reactionary but consistent with God’s who allows the sun to shine on the good and bad alike. Thus, “love your enemy and pray for them” (Luke 6:27-38). Hard as it may seem, we must strive to love them as Jesus did (John 13:34). The more we are united with Jesus through his word and the indwelling holy spirit, the more capable we are of his kind of love that manifests itself in action. Our blessing lies much in our reverence for this command of God (Psalms 33:2-11).May we all make our love real especially, in this season of giving by striving to live out our love like Jesus did. Amen!
