By our love

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

There are so many people in this world who have never been loved, never heard of God, and don’t know that God loves them.

In these days where there is so much uncertainty because of Coronavirus, everyone needs to be reminded more than ever, that God loves them.

For those who have never known God’s love for them, we can show them God, by showing them love.

It’s easy to love someone who loves us in return. But it’s a whole different story to show love to someone who treats us badly, shows hatred towards us, or holds views which are in conflict with those we believe – but that’s exactly what Jesus did! What’s more, he instructed us, his followers, to do the same.

Jesus said ‘My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you’

John 15:12

If we can show unconditional love to others, regardless of how they treat us, and without wanting or expecting anything in return, others will see Christ in us. Now is definitely a great time for us to show the world just how much God loves them!

The time is now, come church arise
Love with His hands, see with His eyes
Bind it around you, let it never leave you
And they will know us by our love
