Love is the greatest commandment, but what does it look like? The greatest example, of course, is the love shown to us and the world through the sacrificial love Jesus showed by giving up everything – even His life for us! He tells us to act in the the same way.
Love isn’t just a word or concept, it is played out in action!
That God would call us His children is evidence of His highest love! It is truly amazing!!
Now, what do we do, now that we are His children? Do we do our best to live as members of His family, or pretend that we aren’t even a part of it?
Of course, we will sin, but have we resigned ourselves to it and given up, or do we allow for the struggle and strive toward the ways of our Father in our daily walk? This will show who our “father” is!
#TruthMatters! That is to be realized most within Scripture and theology itself. If we get that wrong, it leads to heresy and even antichrists! It leads to eternal death. Why do we take such care of our doctrine? Because #TruthMatters! Big time!
The world is corrupt. We know that. But that doesn’t keep us from desiring much of it – a lot! We spend so much time fulfilling our worldly desires – and to what end? What is the end of that pursuit and why is it futile – and even harmful? Finally, what are we to do about it?
The Word of God and His commandment of Love is for young and old and everything in between. But it plays out slightly differently within our different stages of life. Same message. Increasing understanding.
