Do You Really Love God?

There is a lot of talk about love. The word love, itself, has trouble in it's definition.. We can love our Moms, wives, baseball, God, apple pie, and books all with the same word. Hopefully we don't love objects more than people but we say we love them both.

Jesus thought love was really important. His love for us is supreme. He tells us the greatest commandment is to love God with all your mind, body, and soul. Then He says in John 13:34-35 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

How we love others is a sign of loving Jesus. Today consider how you love those around you, and far away.

Do they see Jesus in you or just you?

With Christ we can do all things. Even love the unlovely, or do things we never dreamed of. You’re a lot bigger on the inside than the outside if Christ is in you. And if He is in you then He should be coming out of you, and if He’s not coming out of you is He really in you?

Be wise today and always - love God by loving others.
