I have heard people say, " I love Jesus, but I have a hard time loving people. "
We love or don't love much more because of who we are,
than the worthiness of who we are loving.
If my first and greatest love is Christ, then I am becoming:
Slower to anger,
Quicker to forgive,
Celebrating the Good, finding joy in truth,
Less easily discouraged,
More than a conqueror through Christ.
Does that sound like a person who would struggle to love people? I think not.
The King of love my Saviour is!!!!!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude,
it is not self- seeking,
It is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
Love never fails.
In Christ's Love
