For many years I told people that God loved them. Now instead, I love them. This is being Jesus.
Loving people is the key to showing people the nature of God. Not loving with motive, just loving. Jesus isn’t asking us to do something that He didn’t do. His love was attractive. His love was confusing. His love was real. His love was tangible. His love was pervasive. His love was communal. His love was personal.
Everyone will know you as My followers if you demonstrate your love to others.
John 13:35 Voice
His command for us to love one another comes from His love. The ability to complete His command is empowered by His love.
“Being Jesus” to people around us looks like love in action. In the end, love with movement is all that matters. Love doesn’t have to be forced. We must let our compulsion simply be Spirit within us longing to reach everyone.
