Caring Others As Jesus Loves United States (Gospel Snapshots).
Sometimes my spirit sinks when I hear certain things taught. When you genuinely connect with the truth and the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ, you understand that so many things that are taught are nothing more than humanistic religious beliefs. It is with the topic, ‘caring others,’– or also much better, ‘loving others as Jesus loves us.’ A preacher can go anywhere with the subject of loving others.
They can build a fantastic judicial lecture that can bury people under stacks of spiritual rules! As well as have you seriously contemplated ‘caring others as Jesus likes us’? That was Eve’s lure in the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God.” Thinking the preaching that we can love like God loves, comes close to spiritual absurdness!
Jesus does SAY we must like others the means he enjoys us (John 15:12). There is a sense in which we can at the very least BEGIN caring others the method Jesus enjoys us.
HOW does Jesus enjoy us? Jesus approves us as we are– no issue exactly how negative we are. Jesus doesn’t require that we ‘tidy up our act’ before he enjoys us.
If you question whether you need to alter or not, just ask a person close to you. It is not needs, expectancies or stricture that transforms us. God’s love modifications us– by NOT enforcing needs as well as expectations upon us!
If we do not experience God’s love and approval, we feel he is requiring and important. Frequently we live by a sort of ‘reverse golden rule’– we do unto others as we view God does it unto us. We feel he is demanding if we don’t know his love. We are demanding if we feel HE is demanding. Isn’t it true that “Children live what they discover”?
Are you ready to accept those close to you the method Jesus accepts us– without strings affixed? It’s hard to allow go of our needs as well as expectations, but this IS what God provides for us. This IS caring others as Jesus enjoys us.
And have you seriously considered ‘loving others as Jesus enjoys us’? Jesus does SAY we ought to like others the means he loves us (John 15:12). There is a feeling in which we can at least BEGIN caring others the way Jesus likes us. Jesus doesn’t demand that we ‘tidy up our act’ before he loves us. God’s love modifications us– by NOT imposing needs and also spans upon us! Source – Parable of Sower
