Love Others More

by Dean Rerekura

He is thinking about his relationship with God. He is dwelling on the price that Christ paid, the grace by which he is saved, the forgiveness for his sin, and the open invitation to come in.

He is contemplating eternity and the gift of a worldwide family.

He is thanking Jesus for being the Word, but loving him enough to not just stay being the Word, but also taking on flesh and living with us – forever, together, wherever.

But his thinking about God does not just end there. Contemplating God means for him, also thanking God for His people. Compelling him to love them more, and not just them more, but all people more.

His love for God produced concern, compassion, and care for all others. That was the same for his Saviour Jesus, who looked out to the multitude with compassion because they were like sheep without a shepherd – lost, lonely, and looking for love.

Please Jesus, let me be like that too.

Today, wherever you go, let the Lord lead you to love others more.

1 Thessalonians 3:12

May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
