Walk in Love as Christ loved us

Study these passages with me:

Jesus abounded in grace.  1 Timothy 1:14, "The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus."

Jesus shows us compassion.  Mark 6:34, "When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, He had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.  So He began teaching them many things."

Jesus demonstrated love to us Ephesians 5:1-2, "Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.  And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."

Jesus is the picture of humility.  Read Philippians 2.  Here are verses 5-8:

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:   

Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

The challenge at hand is to demonstrate Christ in all we do.

  • In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul encouraged the readers to "be like me, as I am in Christ."
  • Philippians 1:9, "And this is my prayer that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight."
  • 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."

Today, let's demonstrate Christ's love to a lost world.

God bless.
