May 18 – Love Is Essential To Christianity

Daily Bible Life

Every Christian is expected to promote true love that honors God. Believers must love each other dearly as Christ loved the Church and died for it. The scripture emphasized, “Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:5-6).

 

Lesson:

Believers in Christ are called to operate in the spirit of unity to promote God’s name. We must be honest with one another and promote unity. God expects us to be our brothers’ keepers. We must seek the welfare of other brethren. Indeed, no Christian is expected to be self-centered; we must not focus on ourselves only, but also, be mindful of the needs of other people.

How can someone refer to himself as a good Christian, when he has neglected his fellow believer who is in need? Should a person who seeks the downfall of other believers expect God to applaud him? Will God be contented with any acclaimed Christian who abuses other believers?

Jesus Christ is consistent in his teaching to support the unity of brethren. Christ rejects hypocritical behaviors. The Son of God does not play games. He has promised to shut the gate of his kingdom against people who fail to practice unselfish and unbiased love. (Matthew 25:41-46).

Anyone who claims to be a child of God must be honest in his practices. He must meet God’s standard of holiness – at all costs!

A Christian who is in love with God must share the news of his faith with other people, so that they can have an opportunity of salvation. A true Christian is expected to understand that Christ came to save the whole world; he/she must spread the gospel ceaselessly to help others escape punishment from hellfire.

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord, please help me to demonstrate true love towards other people, especially towards my fellow Christians. Also, please help the church to practice your true love. Let the brethren shun segregation and self-righteousness; let believers operate in righteousness, and empower believers throughout the world to share their faith with others. This way, they can have exposure to the light of the gospel and be saved. Please do these things and many more! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
