It’s A Love Test

With Jesus I think it’s all about love. Everything is a love test. He demonstrated it and He challenges us to love the same way…

  • Love for one another.
  • Love those who hurt you.
  • Love for your enemies.
  • Love for those in need.
  • Love the lost.
  • Love drove Jesus to be moved with compassion.
  • Love to help others.
  • Love to reveal the Kingdom of God.
  • Love for you & me.
  • Love that took Him to the cross.

Maybe everything about Jesus can be summed up in these 3 verses…

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind [intellect]. This is the great [most important, principal] and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as [you do] yourself. [Matthew 22:37-39]

Do I pass the love test?

Truth – some days better than others. Thankful that God doesn’t give up on me, His love never fails, even when I miss the mark. It’s not my get out clause, the test is to get back up and put every effort into making sure that I am making progress in my love for the people in my world.
