True Christians Must Practice God’s Love
(Passage: 1 Corinthians 13)
Christianity is rooted in God’s love, and every Christian must demonstrate sincere love. Paul explained the necessity of love to the Corinthian brethren and said,
“If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud” (1 Corinthians 13:3-4 NLT).
Christians Should Exercise True Love Like Christ
Christ’s love must be found among all Christians. Nothing is remotely significant as true love. Christ came to love, he preached love, and he died and resurrected for love’s sake! Christ’s love is selfless, pure, and positive. It was meant for everyone to prosper and benefit from God’s kingdom. Hence, everyone who claims to be followers of Jesus Christ must prove his or her faith with sincere love. If we claim to believe Christ, we must truly love other people; we must seek their welfare, and we must pray for their salvation. God’s blessings are bound to follow people that genuinely love others.
As Christians, the best thing we can give to the world is God’s love. You might not understand this, but love is the ultimate gift. Love has changed a lot of people’s lives. What’s really great is the fact that you don’t have to do much. Just be genuine and express love and compassion.Click to tweet
