I hope you all had a great Monday! Today I am going to be talking about how Christians are called to love one another. I want to talk about this because I feel like so often, Christians can be super judgement and rude to other people, especially towards non-Christians.
When I went to Saint Louis last summer, my perspective on love totally changed. Everyone in Saint Louis was so open and welcome to every type of person who walked in the church doors. No matter what sexuality, race, or type of person you are; God loves you. We are all sinners. No one is better than anyone else. We are all loved by God, and that is one of the most amazing concepts I can comprehend.
Jesus used those who had sin filled lives. He used the prostitutes. He used a murderer. He used cheaters. And He uses us. I feel like as Christians, we think that if we make one mistake, Jesus won’t use us or love us anymore. This is totally not true.
We shouldn’t try to live sinful lives, but we all mess up. His grace covers us. So, no matter what we did, God will still use us for His good and perfect plan. Just realize what you did wrong and ask for forgiveness. He will always forgive us, and then we can try again to do better next time! Isn’t it fascinating that we serve such a merciful God?
He will use the person you see partying on the weekends. He will use the girl you see gossiping everyday. He will use someone who has a different sexuality than you’re used to. And that’s okay. He has a way of bringing even the most lost person to Him, because he has a father’s heart. He wants a relationship with us, we just have to want a relationship with Him, too.
All sin is the same in God’s eyes. I seriously just want to stress that He loves all of us soooo much. He will use each and every one of us as long as we let him. If you feel unaccepted by other Christians, find ones that will accept you with open arms. Christians are supposed to love EVERYONE, not just those that have the same beliefs as them.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
So, let’s make sure to love each other a little more everyday. – Cami 🤗
