“And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgement, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.” – 1 John 4:17
“…because we live like Jesus here in this world.” A good reminder for today to live our lives the way Jesus did. He loved the people in the world differently because He was not trying to be like those here in this world. I am confident that with His power, we can love others like this. But if we immerse ourselves in the ways of the world instead of the things of God, we won’t be able to. Our jealousy, anger, greed, bitterness, entitlement, hurt and selfishness are too strong when we don’t put Christ first in our lives. So while others may hurt, slander, persecute or treat others unfairly…let’s learn to live like Jesus and love as He loves.
