Do You Belong To Christ?
Love is at the center of the Gospel of Christ. It is the heartbeat of the message of salvation. Jesus said it Himself, John 13:34-35 - "I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." Jesus says it again in John 15:12 - "This is my command: Love one another as I have loved you." This same command, He repeats in verse 17 of that same chapter.
The Apostle Paul picked up on this as well and he wrote the same commands in his letters. Romans 12:10 - "Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Outdo one another in showing honor." In Romans 13:8, Paul wrote "Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, Do not commit adultery, do not murder; do not steal; do not covet and any other commandment, are summed up by this commandment: Love your neighbour as yourself."
As God's children, this is what we do. We love one another. Love in action has to be seen in us, more so as a church, as the body of Christ. John wrote this over and over again. This, my brothers and sisters is very important, for us to obey. We are to love one another. We are to attend to the needs of one another.
Why Christ Had To Come
"Behold what manner of love, that the Father has given to us." Try to feel John's excitement! He's calling your attention with such excitement! Something that the world would not even admire. What was John so excited about? John is telling his readers that God, in His immeasurable love for us, has adopted us as His children, thus proving that He chose to save us by His grace. We may not look like we are and yet we are indeed God's children. And when Jesus finally comes back, we will all be like Him, pure as He is pure. And we are called to practice righteousness as this is the evidence that we are indeed God's children. John tells us to live a life that righteous and is pleasing to God. We are to live a pure life, devoid of sin, grounded in the promise that Jesus is coming back and He is coming back soon! This is His second coming that we all are eagerly waiting.
The Blessings of Abiding In Christ
True believers will remains in fellowship with Christ and experience the blessings that come through communion with Him.
There have always been those, and more will come, who actively oppose Christ and the gospel; We must resist such error and cling to the truth of God as revealed by the Spirit in the Scriptures
