Simple and Powerful Love

March 22, 2015

Summary

In Christ, you were given a new heart, not a sledgehammer. Our call is to love, not to beat others over the head with truth, even if it is true. As we come near to Christ and truly know him, the love we encounter is simple and very powerful. This same selfless, sacrificial love that changes our hearts is the love we are meant to have for others. Instead of focusing on being right, or on having the right stance on an issue, we should focus on being loving and really knowing others. As we do this, we will be near to the hearts of others, and we can love them and minister the gospel to them in a way unlike any other.
