A COMMITMENT TO LOVE
MAIN TEXT: I JOHN 3:16
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Matthew 22:37-Jesus said unto him, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart with all thy soul and with all thy mind.
One may ask the essence of the repeated use of heart, soul and mind by Jesus Christ in the commandment to love God. Well He was trying to explain this commitment of our love for God in a way that we must stick to it so that nothing will change it. Our love for God should reflect in our thinking, actions and communications. Jesus Christ is committed in loving us and we have to show that we are interested in this wonderful love relationship by expressing our love without being selfish.
John wrote that they perceived the love of God, beloved at this point, let us pause and think back concerning our lives to see whether we can actually perceive the love of God working in your life.
The writer encouraged us to show commitment in our love towards one another. We must not stop from loving a brother or sister in the Lord. We should lay down our lives for them in the following ways: to care for them and give love to them like we should give ourselves no matter the mistakes.
