1 Corinthians 16.14 NIV “Do everything in love.”
In his first letter to the church in Corinth, the Apostle Paul gives instructions on how to live as Christians and the way to deal with various issues. His charge to “let all you do be done in love” is still as relevant today as it was then.
Jesus commands us to love God and all others and this love is at the heart of what it means to be a Christian. The Holy Spirit enables us to do this as we love with the unconditional love we receive from God thus glorifying Him.
Our love can be demonstrated in practical ways as each day we make choices like accepting one another, being kind, patient and forgiving. We can do good deeds showing that we care for others.
We can pray for others who are struggling with health, finance and the numerous issues that are faced today. Jesus teaches us to love our enemies and to pray for them also.
When we seek God we will be shown how to love more. In our busy stressful times we can find God's love and comfort through prayer which we can share with others.
So as Paul writes do everything in love.
That is not some things or a few things but all things!
We cannot however be selfish, hate and take revenge in love for love is not self seeking. Mother Teresa has said “We cannot all do great things But we can do small things with great love.”
Whatever we do may it be done in the love of God.
Heavenly Father, we praise You for Your Wondrous Love. Thank You for Your Love and Grace shown to us through Jesus Christ. May Your Holy Spirit enable us to love others in every circumstance of our lives.
