Commanded to Love

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

John 15:17 This I command you-to love one another.

Love as a command is not an emotion. The command of love as a verb – an action word. Action takes a decision and commitment. This type of love we are commanded to have is a desire for God’s best for each person. This type of love means we will not criticize, negate, or in any way hurt or demean any persons. This means we must guard our mouths. We are so quick to allow negatives and criticism out without regard for what harm they cause. When we harm a person our sin is against God. He loves each person. Who are we to hurt someone God loves. Let us learn to be slower in speech and pray before we speak.
