“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.” 1 Corinthians 13:1

 

Beloved, do you know the true meaning of love? Christianity is meant to be a life of love, displaying a character of love with actions of love. That was the kind of life Jesus lived when He walked on earth. He was a man who was full of love for the lost or better put; for humanity and that was why He left His throne in Heaven to come down to bring salvation to all who would believe in Him. While on earth, He performed miracles numerous times. He healed the sick, raised the dead and delivered the bound. He did all these, not to grow the church or to seek the glory of men but out of the pure love that He had for mankind.

Jesus’ lifestyle is what Christianity is meant to be; one of kindness to others, unselfishness, forgiveness, companionship, sacrifice, honoring others above ourselves, and truly caring for each other. Look at your Christian life today. Do you live a love life? Are your words and actions out of pure love? Some people actually mistake ‘lust’ for ‘love’ but they are different. Most believers today prefer lust (‘Eros’) to ‘Agape’ love which is the true, God kind of love. Jesus exhibited ‘agape’ love and that is why He helped people without extorting money from them, sleeping with them, and looking for anything extra from them. His actions were motivated by pure and true love. If you are a child of God, then you must look like your Heavenly Father. God is love and so from today, let it be said of you that you too are love because you’ve learnt to love indeed.
