How to love others with the love of Christ
September 27, 2012
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:7
I’ll never forget one time when our church in Dallas was looking for more ways to reach out to the local community—to the poor, the needy, and the hurting. So we came up with the idea of an event called, “To Dallas with Love,” where we would give away clothing, money, and food to those in need.
Now it was one thing to hear about loving others. But it was a whole other thing to see that love put into action. People were so grateful to be blessed at their point of need. Tears flowed from the eyes of our volunteers as they were able to give in the name of Jesus Christ and love tangibly with the love of the Gospel.
I know so many Christians today who talk and talk about love, but never do anything to show it. They know the doctrines of love and sing songs about it, but they fail to add actions to their words. That’s not biblical love.
Real love doesn’t just sit on a church pew. Real love has hands. Real love has feet. It hugs the widow and comforts the orphan. It gives to the poor and defends the downtrodden. Real love moves you to action. That’s the love Jesus showed you, and it’s the love you can show others!
LOVE OTHERS NOT JUST WITH YOUR WORDS, BUT WITH A BIBLICAL LOVE THAT MOVES YOU TO ACTION!

A lot of people doubt the Bible has anything good to say – much less relevant answers to questions about things like same-sex marriage and abortion. But the truth is, the Bible contains the very words of God about these subjects and so much more.
