Love Like Jesus

Love Like Jesus

In this week’s sermon, we delved into the profound message of love as illustrated in Romans 13. Just as the ancient Romans faced their unique challenges, we, too, navigate a world filled with complexities, conflicts, temptations, and daily decisions. However, amidst the chaos, Paul’s message about love serves as our guiding light, just as it did for them.
Love can sometimes take a backseat in today’s fast-paced and often self-centered world. However, our text reminds us that love is not merely a nice sentiment; it’s our North Star, guiding us through the maze of our lives.

Imagine starting your day with this thought: “I owe a debt of love to everyone I meet today.” Alongside your credit or debit card, consider carrying and using your ‘love card’ with as many people and situations as possible. Unlike your credit or debit card, your ‘love card’ is paid in full, and you do not have a limit. As you spend this ‘love card,’ you’ll find that the more love you give, the more you receive in return. By extending love to others, we can collectively amplify the love we see and experience in the world today.

Ultimately, as we consistently use our ‘love card,’ we resemble Jesus more and more. This transformation aligns us with His example, allowing us to demonstrate what it truly means to be a Christian—a little Christ.
Genuine love isn’t just about following a rule; it’s about fulfilling a divine purpose—to be the hands and feet of Christ in this world. While love may not always be easy, it is always worth it. Just consider the example of Oskar Schindler, who showed us that love demands courage, sacrifice, and putting others’ needs before our own.

So, as you go about your day and week ahead, remember that love is not just something you feel; it’s something you do. It’s an action, a choice, and a way of life. Embrace the message of love, put on the armor of light and Christ, and use your ‘love card’ to make this world a better place, starting right where you are. Become a beacon of love and love like Jesus.

May your week be filled with love, compassion, and a deep sense of purpose.
