LOVING LIKE GOD

NOTE: This is a reprint of a post from the Kris Vallotton's website. Kris is a member on staff at Bethel Church in Redding, California. I share his posts here because I am always amazed at the insights the Lord gives him.

Only love can bring transformation! In this podcast, I explain how love expressed, person to person, is the key for transformation. As the body of Christ, it is our responsibility and privilege to extend love to one another!

I want the world to have an experience with God! Jesus in and through me may be the only Jesus someone knows. I am to be His hands extended to the world. How I feel about me has everything to do with how they experience Him through me. 

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:14
The law said to love your neighbor as yourself. Loving people isn’t the new commend Jesus is giving His disciples. It’s loving people the way He has loved us. There’s something powerful about people experiencing God’s love that they don’t deserve and can’t explain. 
“Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 3:3
What if we exuded kindness everywhere we go? I personally was never transformed until I experienced the love of God. 
The only ones who can love people
are God and you. If we want people to experience love, we have to individually love others.

I love strategic planning and the institution of the church doing good things. But if you want to change the world, you have to do it through people loving people and people experiencing the love of God for themselves. 

Scripture:

Matthew 22:39, 1 John 1:9-2:2, Romans 5:8, 1 John 3:9, John 13:34-35, Luke 6:28-36, Proverbs 3:3, 1 Corinthians 13:1-7, Nehemiah.
