1 John 4:17
Herein in our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as he is, so are we in this world.
“And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.”(New Living Translation)
How can one live in the Lord? Many times we respond to such questions either practically or emotionally, depending on our experience with the Lord. Or more better to say our Journey. It’s the starting point, which was so rightly pointed out by Pastor Johnson.
The starting point!
Everything in life boils down to the starting point. Everything in the world needs love and care. Without love death is permissible. We as human beings need love all the time. We need to give love and know even when to receive it. Living in the love of the Lord will help each one of us to overcome and stand strong in the face of challenges. When the world will grow weak in times of despair and struggle, the love of the Lord will help us walk ahead and beyond.
When we walk in the love of the Lord we will know how to walk in love with the people who he has put around us. His love sweeps away every form of a human trait known to man. It becomes the simplicity of the cross. And only then we will know to live in the Lord.
“Many waters cannot quench love, Nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love All the wealth of his house, It would be utterly despised”. (Songs of Solomon 8:7)
