Luke 6 : 32 “If you love those who love you what credit is that to you?”
JESUS is not saying do not love those who love you, but, rather where does your love end? Is your love limited to a tight inner circle of close family, or is there space in your heart to reach out and love others? Do we feel that others must show their love first ….and then we give love in return? – A conditional love. Are our external displays of love a learned technique done in order to gain recognition? Or do we give love freely in action from the heart? We are reminded in 1 Corinthians 13 : 2 ‘…if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing’
Prayer. Holy LORD our one true king and GOD, we pray that there may be a mighty movement commencing of spiritual momentum in the churches of Johannesburg, a great awakening, that church members can move into being church disciples, with you first in our lives. Amen.
