TOPIC: Live a Life of Love.
Memorise: Ephesians 5:1-2 (KJV)
“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”
Beloved, it is clear that God expects us as His children to live a life of love, just as Christ has loved us. Maybe you are wondering about how Christ expressed His love to us. He did so by giving. The Bible states clearly in John 3:16 that God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that we may live eternally. The love of Christ gives. So as a believer, God expects you to live your life as a blessing to your world. Until your life becomes a blessing, you are not fully maximizing the reason for which God put you here on earth.
Who is your life impacting? Who are you being a blessing to? And don’t be so quick to think in monetary terms only because there are several ways you can be a blessing. When last did you call a brother or sister to just check up on them? When last did you spend time in prayer for your brother or sister? When last did you go into your closet and give out the clothes and shoes that are still good, but you haven’t worn in a while, to the person that doesn’t have as much? When last did you bless someone with a smile and some words of encouragement, to let them know that God loves them and is mindful of them?
This is how God expects us to live. He expects us to be a blessing to others wherever we find ourselves. You should live in such a way that when you are not around, people notice and miss you. The way you live will determine if people will glorify God over you or not. Your life should be so full of good works that men will see it and glorify your Father in heaven. People around you should be grateful to God simply because you are in their lives.
