FYI: DEMONSTRATING Your Love For God

FYI: DEMONSTRATING Your Love For God

God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” So if Jesus, being perfect and without sin didn’t come to this earth on a mission to condemn, then neither should I.

John 3:17

There are four areas in our lives and relationships in which we can live out our Christ-given love:

1. We can show our love for God (Mark 12:30). As we show our love for God, those around us will see we serve a loving God who also loves them.

2. We can show our love for each other (John 13:35). If we can’t even show those around us that we love other Christians, then why would they think we would love them?

3. We can show our love for our enemies (Matthew 5:43-46). This can be the hardest, but the most rewarding for us. If we can love those who don’t love us, we show the opposite of their condemnation.

4. We can show our love for the needy (Galatians 2:10). Giving and showing love to the needy is doing it without expecting anything in return. Instead of condemning them and telling them they are in need because of their own actions, we demonstrate our love by meeting their physical needs and clearly communicating the Gospel of grace.
