Care About What God Cares About
By Rick Warren

“Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did” (1 John 2:6 NIV).

The starting point for developing the character of Jesus is to care about what God cares about.

For instance, God cares about the world, so we should care about the world. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son” (John 3:16 KJV). That little word “so” adds an extra dimension to the verse’s meaning. God doesn’t just love the world; he so loves the world!

And God didn’t just say he loves us. He acted upon his love. He said, in effect, “I’ll do anything I can to bring you home to heaven, even if it means my only Son dying on the cross.”

God also cares about the church, so we should care about the church. Why? The church is God’s family, and he loves his family. God created everything because he wanted a family. Without that desire, there would be no universe, solar system, earth, or human race.

One day everything else in the universe will be destroyed. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. But God’s family will last forever. It’s more important than anything else on the planet because it’s going to outlast everything else 

To become more like Jesus, ask him to help you love the world and its people—and ask him to help you love God’s family, the church.
