Show Love

Love each other with a warm love that comes from the heart. After all, you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth. As a result you have a sincere love for each other.

1 Peter 1:22 GW

We understand what love is when we realize that Christ gave his life for us. That means we must give our lives for other believers.

Now, suppose a person has enough to live on and notices another believer in need. How can God’s love be in that person if he doesn’t bother to help the other believer?

Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words.

1 John 3:16‭-‬18 GW

Above all, love each other warmly, because love covers many sins.

Welcome each other as guests without complaining.

Each of you as a good manager must use the gift that God has given you to serve others.

1 Peter 4:8‭-‬10 GW

I know I’m not crazy when I read the Bible.

It confirms what the Lord has taught me.

He’s taught me to love others as myself.

We are all members of one body.

We should live in harmony with each other and share everything that we have with those in need.

Believers don’t consider any possession as their own.

Now, in today’s corrupt world, greed, worldliness and selfishness have corrupted the Church.

That’s why we must lead by example.

When a believer in need comes my way, I help them to the best of my ability.

After all, that’s what I’d want someone else to do for me.

I believe that’s called the Golden rule.

As in, if you can’t remember anything else, just treat people the way you want to be treated.

I treat friends, acquaintances and strangers alike.

I believe that’s how Jesus conducted Himself.

Now, the level of trust and confidence in those people is different, but my love doesn’t change.

All of my friends used to be strangers.

I like talking to strangers, you can always learn something new.

Jesus commanded us to stop collecting worldly treasures and to do good things.

Our Western culture is the antithesis of how believers should live.

We should have all things in common.

We should be meeting in each other’s houses daily.

We are all one family.

I consider our culture to be toxic to humanity, civilization and the environment.

That’s why we’re called out from the world to live lives of faith.

We’re in the world, but not of the world.

Anyone who is a friend of the world is an enemy of God.

I’ve been to some megachurches that encourage people to conform to the pattern of this world.

That’s the doctrine of demons.

I know I’m different from most people and that’s perfectly okay with me.

As long as I’m pleasing my Lord, I know I’m storing up treasures in Heaven.

I also know I’m not alone.

There are others out there with the same conviction to live lives that conform to Scriptural truth.

The world is going to hell.

People that love the things of this world are also going to hell.

To hell with worrying about what they think.

They are deceived and the truth does not live in them.

There are dark days ahead.

The light will shine even brighter as the darkness increases.

It’s going to get so bad that if God doesn’t burn it all up, none of us would endure until the end.

Show love.

Do it in practical, tangible ways.

There will come a time when people won’t listen to Christ’s teachings.

Has that time already come?
