Matthew 5:46 “If you love them which love you, what reward have you?” We can’t just love those that love us. We have to love those that don’t love us. The Bible says we have to love our enemies. Wouldn’t it be terrible if one day some man lifted his eyes from hell and said, “I didn’t know about this place. Why didn’t they tell me?” What if no one had witnessed to you? We need to share the word of God and let people know that Heaven and hell is real. Eternity is real.
Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirreth up strife but love covereth all sins.” We need to love our Savior. We need to love the Saints and we need to love sinners.
1 John 4:8 “He that loveth not, knoweth not God for God is love.” If we don’t know how to love it’s just like saying we don’t know God.
We’re going to be heading toward our homes or out to eat and we get in that rut of living our lifestyles. We do the same things every week. How often do we need to change that? We need to be rooted and grounded in love. We isolate ourselves and forget about those that are dying and going to hell. You purpose is not to get saved and wait on the Lord to call you home. Your purpose is to live his Salvation and share it with somebody. So when you leave today, stop off somewhere and tell someone about Jesus. Call someone and tell then you love them and that you’re praying for them.
May God Bless you
