Love is Important

1 John 3:14-18

14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16 Hereby perceive we the love of god, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
(King James version)

We need to love others as Christ loved us. We cannot love God if we do not love our brothers and sisters. We need to show our love in actions not just words. As the saying goes 'actions speak louder than words'. How can we say we love someone and yet turn him away when he is in need? We should let the love we have for God, and the love God has, pour through our actions.

Christ is Risen
