Love One Another

All of us were created with love by God & all of us - every single person on the face of this earth - is loved by Him. That's whey it's imperative to love everybody we meet everyday. By loving your fellow man unconditionally, it strengthens our love & relationship with our Heavenly Father. And it does open doors to future ministry in the lives of others. What an amazing thing it is to feel loved! God wants us to love & beloved. And isn't it great to feel God's love?! That's what he wants us to share with others.
"A new command I give to you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
John 13:34-35 (NIV)
Loving others seems easy enough to a Christian. But sometimes showing that love can be difficult. When we are hurt by the actions or words of another, we don't really want to love that person. But God tells us that we must. The key is to ask God to help us forgive that person & give us His love to feel for that person. Because when we hang on to resentment &/or anger, we end up grieving the Holy Spirit.
When we love in the face of adversity, we show the world that our love for God is real. His love keeps us going whether we are faced with set backs & feel discouraged, or whether we've been hurt by words &/or actions. We need to value all of our trials, person & physical, & show God's love through it all.
