“And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us.” Ephesians 5:2
The love that God has for us is perfect. As humans, it’s difficult to understand what “perfect” love looks like. But, His love covers a multitude of the wrong things we do each day. Just like a natural father here on earth, He loves us as His children and will love us through anything that we may do, whether it be good or bad. Since we have been shown so much love from God, He wants us to show love to others here on earth. Paul writes to the Corinthians about this exact topic. It’s obvious that he is trying to relay to them the very important message about the importance of us showing God’s love to others.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1. So, Paul is telling us that if we don’t have love, it doesn’t matter how great of a person we think we are, being a “great person” without love just doesn’t cut it. Let the love of God infiltrate your life, and you will see results!
