LOVE IS THE SUPREME TEST!
By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:35).
Love is the most excellent way and the higher kind of life that is supreme. It is the supreme test to identify the disciples of Jesus Christ. 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. When a Christian lives in love, he experiences the divine and awesome presence of God. You can never live in love and be defeated nor forsaken in life. Love is the supreme test to identify the genuine Christians in the Lord.
Love is a fruit and also a gift of the Holy Spirit. God is love and love is of God (1 John 4:7-8). It is love that makes a Christian. A Christian without love is a counterfeit. No wonder the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:2, “And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” Gifts devoid of love amount to naught and hypocrisy in life.
God expects us as Christians to live, relate and pray in love. When we fail as Christians to show love even to the unbelievers; therefore, we are mocking ourselves and God is not glorified. The world wants to see the love of Jesus Christ in us. In fact, we are little Christs; and we are supposed to show the love of Jesus Christ for the world to see and emulate. The love of Jesus Christ should be seen in our lives daily. Agape love is the trademark of a Christian’s attribute in life.
Daily Tip: Love is the supreme test and the trademark of a Christian in Christ Jesus. Shalom!
Golden Text: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another (John 13:34).
