I’m Christian. I believe that our Lord and Saviour died for our sins and rose again. I believe that there will be a second coming of Jesus Christ. It took me a while to become a believer – though I never doubted; I just questioned. Is that the same thing? I never tried to disprove. I just tried to learn more. What I did learn is simple. Apply the teachings of Jesus Christ to your life – NOW. It’s never too late.
I receive a verse of the day from www.biblegateway.com everyday and there are times that the verse of the day really speaks to me. Or I take time to analyse it and apply it to my day. I might be going through something at that moment, experiencing something that week. Whatever it is, God does speak to me. Here is the verse from today:
Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
I’ve bolded and underlined what I believe is the application of today’s verse. We love God, we love our brothers and sisters. If we love God, we should love all of his creations – our brothers and sisters. This is so important in today’s world as we STILL struggle with racism, hatred, jealousy of others. Just because we look different, talk different, eat different – we should NOT HATE. And then when this turns to violence, this is NOT LOVING GOD. We can forgive – but we can never forget.
Have an awesome and blessed weekend!
