True Love

💕share if you know someone who needs to hear this today!💕

If you have someone in your life today who is encouraging you to follow God’s word, realize that they are saying “I love you” in the most absolute terms! You know that romantic idea we have that if someone loves us, they want to be together forever? Well, the person who encourages you in God’s word is literally saying, “I know about this place where we get to live for eternity. I’m not trying to keep you out or keep it to myself – I’d really like you to be there, too.” 

And if you are that person today who is encouraging someone to follow God’s word, be steadfast. Because when you go to someone who says they love God, and you show them that they are disobeying God’s word, and they hate you for it, they have only proven one thing. They haven’t proven that you don’t love them. They have proven that they don’t love God. Keep loving others the way God commands – and pray that, if at all possible and according to God’s will, they may yet see the truth and be saved!

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. (Ephesians 5:11, ESV)

But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. (1 Corinthians 5:11, ESV)

Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. (John 14:21, NLT)
