It is frustrating to see people you know that call themselves followers of Christ spit venom at their brothers, sisters, and people around them because they don’t support the president that was inaugurated today in the USA. Life long learners, and proclaimers that never apply the words of Jesus in their life. We serve the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. There is no thing ever created that can separate us from Him and His love. He is our source, the current president is not our source. Do we really believe God works everything for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose? Do we really believe there will be no end to the increase of His government or of His peace? Or, are these just things we say to look, and sound the part? Some people are acting as if a person can change these things, people do not over rule our Lord.
So today I want to provide a list of a few scriptures that remind us all how to treat one another if we are going to call ourselves Christ like.
Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. 2 Corinthians 13:11
So encourage each other and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. Galatians 5:13
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
This is just a small sample out of the word that tells us these same things repeatedly. Let me reiterate with the words of Jesus himself, the one we say we are following.
So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. John 13:34
This is My commandment, that you love one another as I loved you. John 15:12
This is My command to you: Love one another. John 15:17
Let us follow the ONE commandment of our Jesus. Even if I get frustrated sometimes, I still love you all.
Live your life Kingdom first!
