God Loves You Series: Part 7 – Loving Others.

Love came down….why because God loves you sooo much. He wants you to be free and to be with Him!! Won’t you let Him in!! And He wants you to show others His love for them.

This can be difficult in this lost and dying world. But they need us, but most importanty they need Jesus. And sometimes we may be the only reflection of Jesus that they may ever come in contact with. We want our first impression of Jesus to be lasting!! We want to leave that sweet smelling aroma on others. We want them to see Jesus and not us. I was so blessed the other day when a friend at work told me this sweet comment that just blessed my heart.  I was already feeling discouraged and wondering why the Lord had me where he had me. But she told me, when you first came in for the first time there was something about you, I felt as if I knew you forever. She then called me an Angel {I chuckled because I so don’t think of myself that way–I’m a wretched soul.}And that blew me away! But that was Jesus….He knew you before the foundations of the earth. It was Jesus she was seeing, not me. I was just, at the time, being His vessel. People do see Jesus in you, they are watching us. So we need to represnt Him in a Godly fashion. We are soliders, we are ambassadors, we are His representation. Let us reflect His light, We are the light of the World, we are that city on a Hill!!

Go out today and share Jesus’ love with Others!! Share His J-O-Y!!

Jesus {first}
Others {next}
You {last}

God’s Love and Ours

7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.13 We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.15 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.17 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 19 We love because he first loved us.20 If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.21 And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother
