Outrageous love. That’s what Christians are known for, right? Well, Jesus said:
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples (my true followers), if you love one another.” John 13:35 NIV
Of course this is what Jesus is known for. How could anyone not be attracted to Jesus perfect love? How could anyone be unwilling to fully surrender to his perfect love? Why would anyone resist it? Yet so many continue to do this very thing.
Instead of receiving Christ’s love ourselves we often choose to judge all the others who fail to receive and walk in the love of God. Don’t we? Isn’t that exactly what my opening statement caused us to do? To judge all the Christians who fail to show love instead of looking at our own hearts and doing something about it?
May we receive God’s love in this very moment. It is the only way anything will change. Judging others won’t help. It just makes everything worse! Let’s open our hearts to the love of God and let him make us the change we want to see in the world!
Watch this following clip from the film Furious Love and let it move your life:
Our power comes from the love of Christ. The Bible says in the last days there will be those who have a form of godliness but deny it’s power. The power is in his love!
Let’s go after the love of Jesus and pray that our loving heavenly Papa will fill us with God’s love.
“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:5 NLT
Will you spend some time talking with God asking him to fill you with his love? Ask him to reveal His love for you. He will not disappoint.
