February 1st is tomorrow!! I’ve always loved this second month of the year. Maybe it’s Valentine’s Day and the pink, and flowers and romance, or maybe it’s just that spring is a month closer!
The theme of this month is what? I’d say LOVE and you might agree.
Sunday night a wonderful message was preached at my church regarding the command for believers to show LOVE. It’s in the Scriptures over and over again. Love one another. Do all things in love. Serve one another in love.
By this shall all men know
that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another.
The congregation of my church was reminded of the truth that it’s not necessary for us to die for others. No, we are to live for them and we do that by loving them. “What would that look like?”
- Taking a meal to someone
- Letting someone sleep on your sofa until they could get back on their feet.
- Helping someone financially.
- Inviting someone for a cup of coffee.
- Listening to a heavy heart about a burden they’re bearing.
- Cleaning someone’s house.
- Making a visit.
None of us can do all of that, but we can do something. Something that would show Christ’s love. What will you do to show others you love Christ? I’m asking myself the same question even as I write this post.
We must do it. There’s enough of the enemy’s ugly tactics of division and sinfulness – let’s reach out with hands of compassion and the love of our Savior to show the world what LOVE REALLY looks like.
Has someone reached out to you in a loving gesture recently? Have YOU reached out to show love? What other ideas do you have as to how we can do this?
