LOVE ONE ANOTHER

The only solution to the world’s  problem is to love one another. The bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son and whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” It was the love of God to humanity that brought God down to dwell among us  Jesus was quoted in John 15:12, “This is my commandment That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for. his friends. It was the love that Jesus Christ has for the world that made him to die for us. He died for the sins of the whole world in order to reconcile us back to the Father. Thus he gave us this commandment to love one another in order for the whole world to partake in the reconciliation exercise that Jesus death brought to us. Jesus walked on the surface of this earth forgiving sins. It is important to note that our sins was what separated us from the Father and now that our sins have been forgiven, we can now enjoy all the benefits that God has for us in this relationship.

Now the commandment that Christ gave to us is to love one another. If we do not commit ourselves to this commandment, we will be sinning again. Opposite of love is HATRED. Hatred means there are some sins he /she has committed and because of this we hold that person accountable and we do not want to have anything to do with the person.  Is this not for the same reason that Jesus went to the cross? He died for my sins and for the other person’s sins.  We should now remember that his/her sins have been nailed to the cross, totally forgiven, therefore what I need to do is to love this person as Christ has loved him/her. I should look beyond this person’s behavior, and focus on what Christ did on the cross,, and display the love that Christ has  for all of us.

Love one another because love covers multitude of sins, If we can love one another, the love will allow peace to reign in our midst, between husband and wife, between parents and children, between colleagues at work, and between neighbors. Christ is the Prince of Peace, and if you allow him to dwell in you,  you will be able to show love to every one. He once said “Love your enemy, and do good to those that hate you”  This commandment that our Lord Jesus gave to us is the commandment hat is next to “Love God with all your heart, soul and spirit, and this commandment fulfills all the other laws. The love of God in us should be shed abroad in us and bring more souks to Christ.  LOVE ONE ANOTHER. God be with you all.Amen.
