Don’t Say “Jesus Loves You”

 

(1 Corinthians 13:1) “If I speak in the languages of humans and angels but have no love, I have become a reverberating gong or a clashing cymbal.”

(vs 3) “Even if I give away everything that I have and sacrifice myself, but have no love, I gain nothing,”

(Matthew 22:37) “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”

(1 Corinthians 4:20) “for the kingdom of God isn’t just talk, but also power.”

 



The love of God is more than words, it’s action. He proved this to us by making a way for us to be set free from our sins, the dominion of Satan, and by giving us the opportunity to enjoy His presence while on earth. God became man and paid a ransom for us with His blood. He backed up what He said with action. When was the last time you gave to someone just because, first of all, God loves them, and second, you are supposed to love them as well?

I´m not talking about being nice or friendly because you want to get something out of them or make sure they like you. But simply showing the love that God has first shown towards you. Everyone is nice to you when you have something to offer. If you have not experienced God’s love in your life, or don’t really appreciate what He does on a daily basis for you, then you probably cannot easily love others or just be there for them without a hidden agenda.

Lately, there is a lot of talk about forced conversions in India, to the point where the government is trying to pass laws that will punish any conversion to Christianity with time in prison. This is simply ridiculous, as Christians are being penalized for showing charity and love to a group that is abused, rejected, and left to their own Karma by their own faith and people. 

Trust me, those that convert in order to receive favor in college admission, food on their plate, or a job, will un-convert once they run out of all these materialistic benefits. Christians around the world, give because it was first given to them. Love because they have first been loved. Sacrifice themselves and go where others don’t want to go to share the Gospel because it is a commandment given by Jesus. It’s that simple.

We cannot obey God’s most important commandment to love Him with all our hearts, soul, and mind, and ignore helping those that we know can benefit from our existence.


There is a song by Steve Camp that says, “Don’t tell them Jesus loves them till you’re ready to love them too. Till your heart breaks from the sorrow and the pain they’re going through. With a life full of compassion may we do what we must do. Don’t tell them Jesus loves them till you’re ready to love them too.” (look for it online, it will put some priorities straight in your life.)

 

 

People won’t care which faith you follow or how much you know, until they first know how much you care.
