Summary: Christian maturity is measured by the love of God that you express to others
Christian maturity is measured by the love of God that you express to others. God loves the whole world, he desires to save and help all man. To be identified with him means to love what he loves and to desire what he desires. The biggest problem in the world is not the Devil, the reason we have so much problems in our society is because of selfishness. Whatever evil a man could ever do stems from selfishness, the only reason somebody would kill, steal, or do any kind wickedness is because of selfishness. Selfishness is a spirit of the world, it rules the hearts of men and women in the world. It is manifested through pride, self-worship, boasting, jealousy, witchcraft, selfish ambition, hatred and anger. This spirit makes people think everything is always about them.
Thank God for Jesus Christ, who brought us this message of love. Love is the greatest power that can change the world, it is only through this message that we can have world peace. Jesus speaking to his disciples said “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you…...” (John 13:33). The entire message of Christianity is encapsulated in this one Word “LOVE”. The entire Bible is summed up in one Word “LOVE’, Galatians 5:14 says; For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” The day the world understands that “God is love”, and that he did not send his Son into the world to judge them, but to save them through him, is the day they will wonder; why have we rejected the one who has always loved us so dearly.
