1 John 3:11
For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Love one another! It is no new thing. There are no qualifying here, just simply, “love one another.” The reason we have issues doing that sometimes is because we forget how the Lord loved us and how He does love us. He loves us unconditionally. Likewise we are to love each other unconditionally. It doesn’t mean that I’m going to agree with everything you do, say or think. It just means that no matter what I am going to choose to love you unconditionally. I’m not perfect and you’re not perfect but we can share the perfect unconditional love of god between us.
One meaning of the word love is to give and to bring near. Two imperfect human beings can be near each other in a marriage, on a job or in a church if the love of God is in each one of them. When I think of the shape I was in when the love of God filled my life it is not hard to love someone else. Yes we can love the unlovable when we allow the love of God to fill our lives. Where were you and what was your life like when the love of God found you? Yes I can love the unlovable.
Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
Remember where you’ve been and what the love of God saved you from and then share that same unconditional love with someone else.
