Let us Love. Love as One Greater.

Let us love. Let us love unconditionally and fully. Let us love with our whole hearts, to the point where our hearts break and our souls are pained. Let us love in weakness. Let us love in strength. Let us love our brothers and sisters when joy overflows and laughter abounds. Let us love our enemies when the road is bumpy and the path seems unclear. Let others know us by our love. May those around us look into our eyes and see the eyes of Christ, touch our hands and feel the warmth of His skin, hear our voice and be calmed by His words, sit next to us broken hearted and know that they have been in the presence of one greater than ourselves. May they leave our presence knowing they have come in contact with more than broken people, although that is what we are, but may they leave us knowing that they have come in contact with a Creator, a Father, a Savior. May they do so because we are so in step with the Spirit that we lose track of ourselves in light of those around us. Let us love.

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:1-4
