Do you remember the song that says, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love”? Secular songs are usually way off base, but this one was nearly right.
What the world needs now is God's love. Actually the world is starving for the love of God. They search for it in countless ways, but there is only one way they’ll ever be fulfilled.
As followers of Christ we are an open door into the love of God for the people with whom we come in contact. We have the privilege to love them with the God kind of love. This is not always easy. It takes practice! It takes a cultivating of the fruit of the Spirit inside us.
When we are patient, kind, not rude, not envious, not boastful, and we forgive quickly and don’t gossip, we stand out! That how we demonstrate the love of God to those around you.
We can love so deeply and so well, people will know just by watching us that we’re are followers of Christ. They will literally find His love in us. And that’s what they’ve been looking for all along.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
Enjoy a day giving His love away to all those you come in contact with.
