Ephesians 5:2 – Walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us.
Many people are self-centred and they don’t care about others or their feelings. They love themselves and their possessions more than the concern for even their close ones. Do you love others? Do you love others as you love yourself? If so, you are undoubtedly in a right relationship with God. But if you find yourself focussing all of your attention on your own life exclusive of others, you can know for a fact that you haven’t loved yourself the way you need to.
Jesus is the perfect example of one who loves others. In fact, the Bible says that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us because He loved us (Rom. 5:8). Love couldn’t be demonstrated in a more vivid manner than that. Phil. 2:5 says, “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” If so, let us also love others the way God loves us. Let us be concerned about the feelings of others and extend God’s love to them. All the love you need is totally available to you right now. God is ready to love you so powerfully that your love for others will become automatic and natural.
