Reflections; Love and Loving

Hey Readers,
This is one that really hits home :-), Hope you all enjoy it
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you" John 15:12 
Loving one another? I wonder what the world would be like if more people loved as Christ does. I think the world would be a better place to live if more people loved like Christ did. I have often said my ministry motto is simply "Love them crazy just like Jesus" This concept has been burning in my heart more and more with every day I am blessed with.

As I write this I am reminded of several scripture verses that speak of loving others, this tells me that loving others is quite important to our walk in Christ. In fact I feel that it is one of the most important actions we are blessed with the ability to do. I believe that we are all called to love one another as Christ has loved us. It can be hard sometimes, but with the strength of the Lord guiding our every step it is always possible.

Our relationship with Christ is not based off of taking the easy way out. We are told in the scriptures that we will face trials. There will always be twists and turns we have to go through in our lives, it can be submitting to authority, working though our problems, meeting the challenges placed before us, facing our past, embracing our future, or even finding the strength to live in the present.
It is what we do when we are faced with those situations that matter most. With all my heart I believe that IN ALL THINGS GOD HAS CALLED US TO LOVE AS WE ARE LOVED.

We need to be faithful to loving one another in every aspect of our lives. Our motivation in life must follow these four steps.

LOVING OUR SPOUSE (if you have one of course)

Thanks again for visiting "The Gathering Room"
Stand Strong and continue to believe the teachings given to you
