You are My love letter to the world. They are reading you. When they open you up, what do they see? What do they feel? Do they sense acceptance? Do they feel warmth? Are they able to be themselves around you?
My Son, Jesus, chose his disciples from the least likely of people. He did not go to the well-educated or well-known. He went to those the religious community looked down upon. He went where they would not dare to go. For He knew He would take the sins of the whole world upon Himself and He was willing and obedient to the mission.
Jesus never wavered. His joy was in seeing your face. That is what kept Him focused—His great love for you. He had to make a way for you to come to Me and you were worth it. Now go and show this great love that I have put inside you to your world. All are welcome so do not discount anyone. My love can melt the hardest of hearts. Love well and thus fulfill the law of Christ, the law of love.
Matthew 5:44-45 Living Bible (TLB)
44 But I say: Love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In that way you will be acting as true sons of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust too.
1 John 4:7-8, 11-12 Living Bible (TLB)
7 Dear friends, let us practice loving each other, for love comes from God and those who are loving and kind show that they are the children of God, and that they are getting to know him better. 8 But if a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love.
11 Dear friends, since God loved us as much as that, we surely ought to love each other too. 12 For though we have never yet seen God, when we love each other God lives in us, and his love within us grows ever stronger.
