Christian Love


“Through Christ we have been empowered to love even the worst of sinners in the society, because by faith we are made to understand and experience the eternal love of God and therefore it humbles us and enables us to pass it on to our enemies. As a believer, love is our nature, because of this; our faith becomes a surety to access the promises of God in our lives for “faith works through love” Galatians 5 v 6. Through God’s love for us, we learn (1 Corinthians 13:7) that love never gives up and that its faith, hope and patience that never fails.


Love your enemies” is a phrase that we often use without full understanding as children of God. In Matthew 5:44 Jesus said “But I say love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you”. God has poured out so much love for us that through Christ he has made it possible for us to love.


Therefore, because we already know that God carries so much love and we are partners of it, we should therefore be willing to pass it to the souls in need of it. This love expressed to the needy through patience, Imparts hope.


The secret to fully receiving this love is Christ (John 3:16) “for God so loved the world that he gave his one and only begotten son that who ever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”. When we are in full union with Christ, It’s our duty to spread this overflow of love without fail that people may fulfil their God given purposes in this world.
