Love Brings Us Together
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another,God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. ” (1 John 4:12)
Its one of those days again when I find myself in the middle of refereeing a squabble between my children. One will always say the other sibling started it and he only retaliated. The other one would say that sibling was provoking by making jokes that led him to do such an act. As a parent, I get tired being in the crossfire. Both have a point but, ultimately, both are still wrong therefore none of them win the argument. There is no win when one loses. I always tell my children we are just one team. If our team is united, we all win. As the saying goes “United we stand, divided we fall”. The best way we can show that God is in our family is if we love one another. Love always brings people together and not apart.
This is the same concept in the Kingdom of God. God loves His church. He doesn’t play favorites. He doesn’t bless one church over the other. He sees us as one team. His goal for us is to finish the race set before us and win the crown of life. No one should get left behind. If we want to stand on victory ground, we must learn to love one another. We show this love to the world through our harmonious relationship with each other. If God truly lives in us, we must show our love for His body.
Lord, teach us to love one another. Help us see each one as part of the winning team.
Be part of Team Jesus. Show love to a brother and sister in Christ today.
