Love Your Neighbor

Is anything too hard for the Lord our God? If we can give of ourselves fully to our neighbor, how much more has God given of Himself fully to us by sacrificing His Son Jesus for the remission of our sins?

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”

(Galatians 5:14)

Jesus said that no greater love could someone have for another than to lay down one’s life for a friend. As God had done with Christ, so ought we to do for our neighbor. For there is no injury when we love; God makes all things work together for good.

How should we show our love toward our neighbor? We show them love by being patient and kind. We do not envy or boast. We are not arrogant or rude. We do not insist on our own way. We are not irritable or resentful. We do not rejoice in evil.

If we have God’s love living inside us then we will bear all things, believe all things, hope all things and endure all things, for love is ceaseless. In the same way that nothing is too hard for the Lord, love your neighbor.

    1. By what we do and do not do is how we show our love toward our neighbor. As difficult as it is, God will give us the strength we need to be an example to others and love them with all our heart. Great is our God for his love endures forever!
