Christ’s love as an example to us

“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19, NIV

 

Note here, that the verse instructs us to love.  Not “love specific people who have been good to you” or “love those who are convenient to love”. The verse says be loving, for He loves us.

Christ’s love is sacrificial and unconditional. Our love should be the same, but as loving as we can be, many of us don’t live up to these expectations most of the time. Our love is conditional, and not always sacrificial.

Keeping with this month’s theme of loving thy neighbour, look at those around you, your church, class, CG or MG. Is there someone you haven’t spoken to or caught up with for a while? Start by striking up a conversation with them, ask them how you can pray for them, and do so.

Be loving, because he first loved us.
