Encouragement Nugget - Always Make Love a Priority!
Chosen by God!
"Don’t be angrily offended over evildoers or be agitated by them for the wicked have no life and no future—their light of life will die out." (Proverbs 24:19-20 TPT)
And this is why we must:
"Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. " (Matthew 5:44-45 NKJV)
Bottom line - Love changes everything while identifying who we really are.
"I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves]." (John 13:34-35 AMPC)
We are commanded to love our enemies - this identifies us as sons and daughters of God.
We are commanded to love one another, believers, - this identifies us to the world as Jesus' disciples.
Until we can love one another the world is not going to want to hear a word we have to say. Love opens the door to God's amazing grace and His gift of salvation. The world needs to hear this message so let's start really walking in love. As believers there is more that keeps binds us together than tears us apart. We just have to choose to walk in it!
Remember, the world is watching!
