A Life of Love: Love One Another

by David Chadwick We have spent the past three weeks learning how to live a life of faith, hope, and love. “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13). They are the three qualities of this life that will exist forever in heaven. Love is our theme this week and we are wrapping it up today. I pray we all pass the agape test in 1 Corinthians 13. We must know God is love. We must look at the cross and see the Father’s love for us in Jesus. We must understand the power of love. And today’s tip: love one another. Dear friends, go love someone who is worse off than you. Quit feeling sorry for yourself. Quit living as a victim. It does not matter how bad your situation might be, there is always someone worse off than you. Go visit them. Try to love them like Jesus would. Practice agape love. Find someone in a desperate situation, and go give your life away. If you are suffering from depression, this might be a cure. As you choose to give your life away, taking the focus off yourself, watch as your own depression might lift. It’s a spiritual principle and it’s personified in Isaiah 58:10. “If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.” I would encourage you to memorize this verse and put it into practice. Remember that at the end of the apostle John's life, at the ripe old age of 95, he gathered his congregation together and just before he died he purportedly said, “Little children, love one another.” It was true back then and it’s true for us now. May we all seek to cultivate a life of love. After all, it’s one of only three things that remains forever!
