"Beloved, let us love one another"

<3 LOVE <3
~*~1st John 4:7-8, we say this verse, we know, and love this verse. but how real is it in our life? i have noticed that in my own life, i love but it at times is a surface love. when i see brothers and sisters in the Lord, i ask "hey how are you?" they reply " im great" i end up walking away after say thing "thats good, me too." does that show my love? why dont i ask why? or maybe just really invest. God does not show us a surface kind of love but a deep and unfathomable love. i know i cant love like he can but i can try my best to truly love on people. to see where they are, if there in need, and i cant stop being fake! every time i say hi to someone but in my heart i cant careless how they r doing thats just being fake. and i need to do a heart check. we are love our neighbor as our self. if i were in need or hurting, i would want my "friends" to show they care, or the church to show they care and they truly love.

last night i heard about a movie that is showing what people think of Christians and what people thing about Jesus. the thing missing in there def of us as believers is love. the love we should have for each other but mostly fo r this world is not there. we look down on people without even noticing, we hate and dont see its wrong. we would rather argue then love. man did this convict me. we are suppose to hate the sin and love the sinner, why then is it the other way around? check out this video. it really made me think.

Josh said something that really God me thinking. the way to win San Fran for Jesus is not with protests and outreaches but with opening the church like its a hospital and love on people and meet their needs.


  1. I've read half of this book, it was very interesting. Demonstrations aren't going to bring people to Jesus, its going to have to be every individual loving on the people like Christ did for us.

  2. exactly. for me that really clicked cuz so many times i think i dont know enough when its really i dont love enough.
