Love is a Commandment

The distinguishing mark of Christians is the love we have for others. When we love our brothers and sisters, we demonstrate the true character of God. Love is unconditional. It is choosing to see someone the way God sees them regardless of your personal feelings, treating them with respect.  God sees every person as His children whom he loves that are lost and in need of a savior.

It is especially important to remember this as we are in such a divided time in our country with the election coming up. We all have the right to our own opinions, but God’s opinion and His Word should be the final say in how we vote.  Even when we are dealing with those against us, we still have to see them as God does, love them and pray for them. We should not stoop to their level with name calling and disrespect.

This of course does not mean that you back down on your stance or God’s Word, but it does mean that you treat ALL people with respect and see them through God’s eyes.  Remember that Jesus loved the very people that crucified Him. He died for them just as much as He died for you. By showing them the Love that God showed you, you will be opening up a door for them to come to know Jesus which is most important.

1 John 3:14

“We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.”

Declaration of Faith

My character represents God, therefore I choose to walk in love in every situation. I love my brothers and sisters regardless of how they are towards me. I choose to live my daily life imitating God and showing unconditional love towards others.
