Love Aggressively

Love Aggressively

This is My  commandment: that you love one another [just] as I have loved you. No one has  greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up)  his own life for his friends. —John  15:12-13

As the children of  God, we must love others as God loves us. And that means aggressively—and  sacrificially.

Love is an effort.  We will never love anybody if we are not willing to pay the price. One time I gave a  woman a nice pair of earrings. My flesh wanted to keep them for myself, but my  spirit said to be obedient to the Lord and give them away.

Later that woman  stood up in a meeting and told how she had been given the earrings she was  wearing as “a free gift.”

The Lord spoke to  me and said, “Yes, it was a free gift to her, but it cost you, just as  salvation is a free gift to you but it cost Jesus His life.”

Love is the  greatest gift of all. When you show forth the love of God, do it freely,  sacrificially—and aggressively!
