THIS YEAR WE NEED TO LOVE MORE

Love is a skill. If we struggle to love, here is some good news: Love is learned! That means the more we practice, the better we will become at it. No matter how we’ve loved or been loved in the past, we can become exceptional at loving others.

“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:11-12)

God wants us to become a master of this skill. He would not tell us to love others if he was not going to help us to do just that.

Many people never learn how to love.

When people speak of how we love others, do we want them to say, “We love them regardless of where they have been?” 

God’s Word and the Holy Spirit will teach us to love others. We need to practice it over and over again. It may feel awkward at first as we learn to love with a greater capacity than is humanly possible, relying on the love of God to work through us. The more we love like this, the better we will become at loving unconditionally.

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” (1 John 4:7) 

Our love comes from God, and when we practice and commit to loving others as Jesus loves us, people will take notice, and will be drawn to God.

Do you want to be known as a person of extraordinary love?
