WALK IN LOVE

 
2 John 1:6


"And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love." NIV


"And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it." KJV


How can we stand firm and walk at the same time? We stand firm in our faith not allowing anything to take us from our knowledge of the truth. We walk, or rather we live out our faith in love as Christ taught us to love. We are taught this love from the very beginning, when we are but children, singing 'Jesus loves me.' As we grow in Christian faith and maturity we learn to show that same love to others we meet as we walk along the path of this life. Our Lord commands us to walk in love, showing grace and mercy to everyone, the loving and the evil. Yes, this is His command to us. How well do we walk in love?


Heavenly Father, just as it can be difficult to stand firm with all the distractions around us, it can also be difficult to walk in love when there are so many ungodly people around. Help us to remember that You love them and died for them just as you did for us. Fill us with Your love, so that others will be drawn to you. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
