God’s Children Should Live Loving Lives
Construction Zone 10: God's Purpose for His Children
What does it mean to 'love God and others'?
To love God and others means to treat them with real care, humility, and loyal kindness. Philippians 2:3b – In lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
This Truth Makes
When God is working to make us more holy and more like Christ, He to love what He loves. We love Him. We love others. We love good works. We love holiness. We love everything that Jesus loves!
The opposite of love is selfishness. True love gives selflessly to God and others. Jesus Christ was the ultimate example of love. He lived His life selflessly – serving His Father and helping others. He gave His life on the cross, proving that He loved His Father and us more than Himself.
John 15:13 – “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
