“For when you demonstrate the same love I have for you by loving one another, everyone will know that you’re my true followers.””
John 13:35 TPT
It’s not always easy loving people. Some are easy to love, but as we know, there are some people in our lives where it is incredibly difficult to love. Whenever I come across one of these prickly people, I find myself asking Jesus to help me love the person in question. Challenge accepted!!
Sometimes I need all the help in the world to love some people.
Loving people is an important part of our Christian walk. If we want to bring Jesus into the world of the people around us – we must show ourselves to be loving and kind. This doesn’t mean we allow ourselves to be treated badly. It means that we become like Jesus. How would Jesus love these people?
There will always be people who reject us, but we need to let offence slip off us like the water on a ducks back. Keep moving forward. Don’t get caught up in the nonsense or the politics of the day. Be smart, keep it simple and just love people for where they are at.
Keep in mind, we are the only bible some of these people we come in contact with might ever read. Jesus first. Me second.
