Loving like Jesus


1 John 4:9 - By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.

I was studying this for my sermon this weekend and this verse hit me in a new, fresh way. As we learn and experience the Love of God, we are sent to live out that Love to others. God's love is manifested by his son for the purpose that we live his love through us to the world. We are his agents of love, that instead of of living through our pride, inadequacies, insecurities, prejudices, laziness and favoritism, we would exhibit Jesus Christ who is humble, adequate to love every person wholly, secure in my relationship with Christ, lovers of all races , hard working and loving everyone equally. We are his flesh, his bones, his face, his hands, his smile to a world that is void of love. We are called to love, unconditionally and continually...

Just a thought to encourage you today...
