HOW MUCH LOVE?
2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. 4 You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5 For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
5:6 We are saved by faith, not by deeds. But love for others and for God is the response of those whom God has forgiven. God’s forgiveness is complete, and Jesus said that those who are forgiven much, love much (Luke 7:47). Because faith expresses itself through love, you can check your love for others as a way to monitor your faith. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV. Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
Love is a true sign of Christianity! I know it’s not easy to like everything or everyone but Christ commands us to love one another, even your enemies. You can still show Christ’s love by praying for them. When we show love, we show Jesus how much faith we have that His blood was shed for all of us and that He is the true savior of the world. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let Jesus and others see how much love you have.
