Relationships matter, People matter to God. When you read through the Bible you will see time after time God bringing people together, God redeeming people, God healing people, God loving people. You will see God’s people forgiving one another, helping one another, encouraging one another. There is no doubt that God loves His people. There is no doubt that God commands us to love one another. There is no doubt that God brings His children together for His great purpose.
Sometimes we find ourselves looking around at our society, looking around our community, looking around God’s people in judgement and with condemnation. Remember that our God has called us to love one another. Maybe that means today that you seek forgiveness from someone you have wronged, maybe you need to let go of a grudge you have been holding onto, maybe you need to confess your judgement or gossip, maybe you just need to try better to see the world thru the eyes of Jesus. Be encouraged today that whatever He is calling you to do…itÂ must be fulfilled. All things are possible with His help!
“Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.” Romans 12:9-13
