Jesus is our example

God is love–1 John 4:8

Love is something that can be seen. It is seen in the fruit of the Spirit working in our lives, in our behavior and how we treat people. Love has many facets, or different ways we can see it. For example, when a diamond ring is held up to the light, it can sparkle in various ways depending on which way it is turned. I believe  love also sparkles in different ways depending on how we look at it.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 gives us examples of the man facets of love:

  • Love endures long–it has the ability to put up with stuff for a long time.
  • Love is never envious–it doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
  • Love is not boastful or vainglorious– it doesn’t call attention to itself.
  • Love is not conceited or rude.
  • Love doesn’t insist on its own way.
  • Love pays no attention to a suffered wrong.
  • Love never gives up!

These are just a few ways we’re supposed to love others.. and it’s also the way God loves us. First John 4:8 says that God is love. He loves us and has saved us, so now we can share His love in 1 Corinthians 13. He always acted in love in every situation, even when people came against Him.

Colossians 3:12-14 says to clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones.. And above all these[put on] love… Like Jesus, let’s clothe ourselves in love and choose to follow Hi example, bringing honor and glory to God.
