July 17 , 2008 - Devotional: Love One Another

"A new commandment (Jesus) give unto you, that ye love one another, as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. "
(John 13:34)


I've recently found out, or should I say, the Lord has brought to my attention that in my fervor for the faith and hope in Christ Jesus and the salvation found in His name alone, I have been very judgmental in my perceptions of those who do not conform to what I believe is God's will.

What I failed to remember (or acting under my own wisdom) was that Jesus commands me to love others, period! He set no conditions of when to love, but He did set a standard, and that standard was in the way He demonstrated His love to us.

The New Testament is chocked full of examples of how and whom Jesus loved. He chose prostitutes, tax collectors, and fishermen.

He ministered to the poor, the crippled, the hungry, the young, the blind, and lepers. He gave of Himself to the so-called sinners of this world, and I failed to recognize that I fall into this same category.

I was a drunk, a bum, mean spirited and unlovable. Yet my Lord and Savior reached down to me and lifted me up with His nail scarred hands, cleansing and redeeming me, making me a co-heir to His kingdom. Not by anything I ever did or earned, but by His grace and His grace alone.

I realize in humility that I need my Lord to help me love the way He loves. I thank Him for revealing my error and I look forward to demonstrating what He has taught me.

God be praised!.

Rejoice in the Lord Always!
