“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”
1 John 3:16-18 NLT
Christ sacrificial love showed us what love should look like. This love is agape love. Believers should take this command to love and show it to others not just merely say it and not mean it as John talks about. At that point what are you doing? Why lie about love? Are we afraid to show this type of sacrificial love? Love is a complex thing. We should show love by actions, be consistent in love and love those who even hate you. All humans struggle to show this towards others, but we believers have God. We have Christ. So apply these aspects to your life’s, meditate and pray about them. Don’t be afraid, be In truth, love others as Christ did and obey Gods commands.
