Love One Another

John 15:17
These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Romans 12:10
Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Sounds simple enough. But boy, that is one hard thing to do in the flesh. Even our very own families can try the best of us.

So how can we love one another?

Look at others through the eyes of Jesus. Honor others, thinking not of yourself but of them and their needs.

Basically - have the mind of Christ.

How can we do this? By knowing that our heavenly Father loves us. Loves us completely. When we understand this, we no longer have to scramble for our needs and desires. We no longer have to put others down in order for us to feel valued.

When you understand the God of the universe loves you nothing else really mattes.

Walk in the knowledge that the Father loves you. Walk in the Spirit sharing that love with others.
