We do need each other if we are going to survive as Christians, as brothers and sisters in Christ. We need to love one another like Jesus loved us.
John 15:13 (paraphrased)
What greater love than this that a man lay down his life for another.
This is love, to love someone who persecuted you or inflicts harm upon you. How many of us can love like this? It would be hard but if we are going to make it we need to know that we need to love each other with an agape love which is unconditional.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (paraphrased)
Love suffers long, and is kind; love does not envy, love vaunts not itself, it is not puffed up, love does not behave unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked,thinks no evil, It does not rejoice in iniquity, but in the truth, bears all things,believes all things, endures all things and love never fails.
Love no matter what the color of our skin, whether black, white, or Hispanic. We are all one people, we have the same blood, the same history and the same origin. Love our enemies, love those who persecute you. Love, the very first commandment that we should love one another.
So many of us do not believe that we have to love.
We need each other, we need to forgive one another if we want God to forgive us.
We need each other, we need to pray for one another.
We need each other, we need to love if we are going to make it in this world, love without hatred, love without jealousy, love without strife, love without division and love without slandering our neighbor's. All I ask is that we show our brothers and sisters in Christ the agape love of God. If we can do this one thing we will close a lot of doorways for Satan to enter into. Where there is hatred, jealousy, strife, division, and slandering tongues there is Satan. Where he is there is a pathway to sin. Where sin is there their is a doorway to hell. That is why we must remember, we need to love each other because a lack of love will lead to a life without God, and how can we love God if we do not love each other?
We need to love each other !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
