True Love Must Reign In Christian Fold
(Passage: James 5)
Christianity was established to demonstrate God’s love. Therefore, Christians must love God and love each other dearly. Any exercise that is demonstrated in the absence of love will not be acceptable to God.
The scripture emphasized the importance of love when it stated,
“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:14-16).
Lesson on True Love
True love is essential for all Christians to demonstrate. Believers must love each other to demonstrate the true love of God. Christians must not prejudice; we must not segregate people, and we must not offer preferential treatment. Believers must also exercise forgiveness and pray for other people. We must confess our sins to one another and make a significant effort to restore people who have backslided from faith. The demonstration of our true love will bind brethren together; it will glorify God, and it will lead to an expansion of his kingdom.
Pray For Grace To Practice True Love
Dear Jesus Christ, please help Christians to operate in true love to honor your name. Help us to love each other genuinely! Let brethren minister to the needs of our fellows in prayers and encouragements. Empower us to provide welfare for people with food, clothes, money, and others. Let the brethren visit and pray for those who are sick. Please let your genuine love revolve around Christian community so that your name can be glorified at all times! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
