JESUS CHRIST’S LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL!
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35).
Love is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit and it is unconditional. It is the supreme test to identify a genuine Christian. In the opening text, Jesus Christ said that by this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another. Love has no pretense and it is never judgmental. No wonder Apostle Paul says that love does not behave rudely, nor seek its own; it does not provoke nor think evil (1Corinthians 13:5). Genuine love is perfect and unedified devoid of hypocrisy.
Love inspires and compels one to show compassion to the sick, bereaved and the less privilege in the society. Of course, love is the nature of God that makes Him Supreme and Omnipotent. That is why the Bible says in Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Love is the ultimate and it has the potency to conquer all evil. Christianity devoid of love is incomplete and faked because God Himself is love (1 John 4:8).
A Christian is expected to have the fruit of love. Any Christian who wants to function effectively by faith should walk in love (Galatians 5:6). A Christian’s character and language should be expressed in love. That is the reason why Jesus Christ told Peter if you truly love Me, then feed My lambs (John 21:15). Again, Apostle Paul says that love is patient, kind, does not envy, arrogant and proud (1 Corinthians 13:4). Love is the ultimate because it is nature of God that saves and redeems the worst of all sinners. That makes love to be the greatest of all fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Daily Tip: The true identity and trade mark of a Christian is love. Without the fruit of love, you are no where to be found. Shalom!
Golden Text: Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him (John 14:23).
