Several years ago, Life Action Ministries developed what is now known as the “Put Off…Put On” list. Today I want to share the first one from the list.
Put Off: Lack of Love (1 John 4:7-8, 20)
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:7-8 ESV)
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. (1 John 4:20 ESV)
Put On: Love (John 15:12)
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12 ESV)
Remember we are to love others as the Lord Jesus Christ has loved us. Don’t let any worldly standard come between you and the command to love others.
