The most important, vital and blessed attribute of Christianity is love, for without the true love of the Lord God all is futile and meaningless.
"He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes." 1 John 2:9-11 (NKJV)
We can either love or hate a person, there is no third category,
for often we try to excuse ourselves saying that we really do not hate but we also do not really love a person and we try to tell others, ' I have nothing to do with him/her'.
The true Christian love is what was the foundation of the early church and that is what held it together and the Lord was pleased with them.
What we see, observe and feel today is that true love is vanishing from even amongst the believers, the church which was 'the house of God' is becoming like a corporate worship place.
What Jesus said stands true for all times....
"By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35 (NKJV)
If we do not have the love of Christ, we are not His disciples.
The only way to receive a loving heart is by transformation and to become like Jesus, for when we will be like Him, we will love like Him.
Dear Ones!!! Many hearts are broken for want of true love, it could be that you also are seeking for friends and relatives who would truly love you.
May the dear Lord bless us and make us to be like Him, to be filled with His unconditional love.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
