Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, bids us to love all, bringing joy wherever we can. Romans 12:9 puts it this way: Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.
We’re told that we can’t fail to love someone, once we understand them. We’re also told to look for Jesus in everyone. When we do this, we are more apt to be reminded that everyone is created in His image and after His likeness. This makes me think of the word, “Namaste.” Literally, it means, “bowing to you.”
Something I learned some time ago, is that God loves because He is love. That means it makes no difference whether or not I like you, or even whether or not I understand you. It means I love you because I am called to love you. We are called to be like our Master, Jesus, and our Heavenly Father. “Be perfect, therefore, as your Father in Heaven is perfect.” Perfect love casts out fear; which all too often is the wedge driven between us as humans. Here, again, the key is understanding all of God’s ways with us, and growing in them. God is love perfected. We learn what we live, and we live what we learn. So, let’s learn from the Master!
