Getting Real About Life, about Love, and about God
Wednesday, April 6, 2011
We love God by loving others. Our Love of God is an action and is shown in our willingness to love others like he loves them and he loves us. John 3:16 tells us the action that God takes because he loves us. 1 John 3;16 tells us the action that we must take because love God.
We ought to do what God does because he loves. We ought to lay down our lives for each other. Love puts others first. Love puts God first. Love lays down I for we. Love lays down mine for yours. Love lays down self for someone else. Love doesn't forget about self or loath self, but it does put others first. We show God how much we love him by how much we love the people that we are in contact with everyday.
In Christ's love and mine,
