As Christians we were not asked to love. To choose who to extend our borders of kindness and care to. We were charged, commanded to love. Irrespective of the individual’s class, colour, creed or personality. We must love, as in loving them we prove that we are disciples of our King. The one who first loved us, Christ Jesus.
For those struggling to love another, this book will set you in the right direction. Providing for you a comprehensive guide. In it you will find a collection of scriptures that will illuminate your path as a believer. Not only believers, but those who have heard the Word of God and are seeking to draw closer to Him should have a read.
I enjoyed the fact that it was concise and after the scriptures the author ensured that readers understood its context. This was achieved through the power of explanation and the use of examples. It opened my eyes to see the flaws I still battle with as a follower of Christ. The judgmental eye, the mouth quick to offer condemnation and the heart puffed up with pride.
In my opinion, it is impossible to read this book from cover to cover and not question yourself. Am I being the light I was called to be? Am I truly using the Word as my guide? Am I loving without favour? It is important to remain truthful to yourself, using the Word of God as the basis of your truth.
The Jesus Command, reminds us that of our own we can do nothing, which includes saving ourselves. But thank God for Jesus, who took on the sins of the world, in love. Our faith in Christ is our ticket into eternal life.
After reading I found the need to repent. For I have not loved as I ought to. I have not extended myself to my brothers and sisters when they needed me too. But I intend to do better, leaning on the power and Spirit of God that stirs change. In Christ we are new creatures, without obligation to sin. Happy Reading!
