Loving One Another

27th Aug 07

John 15:12-13
NKJV "This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends".

That we love one another, as Christ have loved us.

WOW! That's a whole lot of love. For us human beings who on many occasions prefer to speak ill mannered about one another, as opposed to edifying each other; lie to each other, instead of being bare naked; being in fear of another, along with the many other fears that sniffles our growth spiritually. Thus stopping each one from loving one another as Christ loves u,s which is unconditionally and filled with truth and the edification, along with always keeping His eye on His Father's business.

When I think of Christ loving us, I think of holy love, because He never sat around talking in negativity to Peter about Matthew being a tax collector. Nor did he in secret speak behind someone's back to the Father and I know for sure He was not afraid of who was white, or black, Greek or gentile. 

No! He just loved us for who we are. And if we are to love as He, then it would take us laying down our own lives, which in essence is not allowing our pride to get in the way of things; arrogance to control our state of mind; judgement to be the blockage to our loving one another in truth or other negative attributes that boxes us in.

Loving one another provides a way for a man and wife to be an exchange of positive energy. For each will want to lead the other to the truth, as opposed to who may be right or wrong. Which can cause the other to want more of what the other has to offer on a spiritual level. This will ignite the two emotionally, intellectually, and physically, thus causing each to be together in longevity. And because attitudes didn't play major roles in their lives, along with when one slips, the other may become the iron to sharpen the other.

That's why it's so important to understand the walk with Christ, for then our arms would reached out more often, for when our love ones ask, "How much do you love me?"  You can do as Jesus did. Resembling Him as on the cross: John 13 ,"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends".

Laying down our worldly lives for our friends and family, will lead to the possibility of understanding how a Man could lay down His for us. And if you're like me, didn't even know about Him, other than a name spoken out in vain, when in pain, of some sort.

You want real love? Love in truth, not in vain which may cause some pain. For as time goes on, and at all times you do this, you will be like Him, who loves you more than any other.
