This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 1 John 3:16
My dear, dear friends, if God loved us like this, we certainly ought to love each other. No one has seen God, ever. But if we love one another, God dwells deeply within us, and his love becomes complete in us - perfect love! 1 John 4:11-12
One of a Christian's challenges may be to love others. People, after all, are so inconsistent. They cause pain, even when they don't mean to. Let's face it, loving others can be a real sacrifice. But it is a sacrifice we can't avoid if we want to follow Jesus.
Lord, your call to love others is so clear. When I struggle, bring your great love to my mind so I can love others as You would love them.
