It’s a tough call to walk in the way of love, but this is what God expects of us. Love is a hard thing. I’m not just talking romantic love. Love for God is tough sometimes too! Some of you will be reading this post and you will have never loved God at all. You don’t know Jesus for yourself, and today and every day he asks you to accept his love so that you can be free, have relationship with him, have eternal life from him, and in turn go out to love others and make a difference in the world. For those of us who do love Christ, the call to walk in the way of love is hard because things get us down. Sometimes we feel like God isn’t near. We don’t feel like loving our boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives in the way we should. We don’t feel like doing everything to God’s glory. We don’t always love his church. We don’t always love those who don’t know Jesus yet.
I reckon that if I loved more, then I would see God moving a lot more in my life. Therefore, my prayer today is that I walk in the way of love.
Ephesians 5:1-2 ~ Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children 2 and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
