Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I John 4:11
24 hours a day and we get to make a thousand choices from the time we get up, till we retire to bed and one of the choices we must all make, is to love. As a part of our routines in today’s world with all its challenges, walking in love may seem like a noble ideal that is hard to achieve.
However, let us not forget that our foundations of love come from God. The recurring theme of the Bible is love, for GOD IS LOVE and being made in His image we must remind ourselves that we were made by love, from love, for love and most importantly to love. To love is not just an option but a commandment in the Bible. Wondering why it is so important and how our choices on earth can determine our eternity?
There several verses in the Bible that reminds us how important the commandments are and how keeping the commandments pleases God. The easiest way to keep all the 10 commandments is to live Luke 10:27 (“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”) We can see how it all boils down to one choice, a choice to love.
This one choice we make to love, will change our destiny. So let us spread love because we were, we are and we will always be loved by a God who gave His only begotten son away because He so loved the world that whomsoever believes in Him shall not perish but will live
