Jacob loved Rachel and gave seven years for her. But as we will see, he was willing to give seven more for her after he was deceived by Laban. The question for you is, do you love? We are not talking about eros or romantic love. The love that serves, sacrifices, and endures is agape love, the love that God shows to his children, and the love that his children are to show toward each other. Do you have a love that serves, sacrifices, and endures? John 1:3-16-18, 23-24. “By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. 17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? 18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 24 Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. For those who do not believe, what you think is love is not real love. The only way to know real love is to experience the love of God. Jesus, God the Son, gave his life for his people. Are you on of his people? He is calling you to repent, to turn from your sin, cry out to him for mercy, and you will experience his love today. For the believers, you are commanded to love. You are to love your brothers and sisters in Christ. There are many ways to do that. But one suggestion I have is that you choose to be present. Make up your mind to be involved in the activities and life of the church. Use the gifts that God has given you and use those for the people sitting in these pews. You are also to love your enemies. There are many ways to do that as well. One way we show love to our enemies is to not allow them to destroy themselves. We stand up and shout out the truth. Do you use social media? Then lovingly show people the truth. But don’t just use your opinions or recite conspiracy theories. Share the word of God. They may say that their not Christians and therefore it doesn’t apply, but according to God, that’s not true. So share it anyway and keep on sharing. And may God bless the work of your hands.
