Loving Like Jesus


Even the unbeliever loves when all is going well. In growth and maturity, unconditional love is the test.

2 Corinthians 10:5

"casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ," NKJV

Unconditional love is not easy. Loving another person even when there is a mess in his or her life can be difficult, but that doesn't mean we don't love.

2 John 1:5-6: "I am writing to remind you, dear friends, that we should love one another. This is not a new commandment, but one we have had from the beginning. Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning." NLT

Within each relationship, we come to realize that it's after the argument that our true love for one another shows. It's in that moment of tension where the power of Christ comes to life in our hearts and actions. In that moment, the battle rages in our minds, and we have the choice to allow it to overtake us or to take it before Christ. Who are you struggling to love? Take the situation to the Lord and then look for an opportunity to show God's love to that person. You'll be amazed at what God will do!

Life Lesson: In growth and maturity, unconditional love is the test. Even the unbeliever loves when all is going well.

Dear God, 
Thank You for the love You have shown me. I know there have been times I have not loved others like I should, and I ask for Your forgiveness. Help me to show the same kind of unconditional love You have shown me because I desire to love You and to love others. In Jesus' name, Amen.
