12/28/2012 Matt. 5:23,24 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
God loves us all so much and wants us to love one another. The first and greatest commandment is that thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, with all thy mind and with all thy strength. The second is like unto it that thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. When we love each other, we are to forgive each other if offenses come. Seeing God has forgiven us so much, we can forgive the small things here on earth. Such a small thing can become such a big wall between Brothers in Christ if we don't make it right with one another by forgiving and walking in love with one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, because you have love one for another. God also has gone so far as to tell us we should love our enemies. By doing this Jesus said we would be casting burning coals upon their head. In the Bible days that Jesus walked upon earth, if a mans fire, in his house had gone out, and he and his family were without heat, he would go to another's home, and ask for some hot coals, so that he could get a fire going, to keep his family warm. Then in love, the visited one would cast hot coals upon the head of the one in need(the man carried a bucket upon his head). Jesus so desires us to love others that He gave us the Holy Spirit to cause the love of God to flow through us to others. God's love will seek to help others know the love that God has for them. The precious gift of God's love is Jesus, who redeemed all mankind to God, and now all they need do is accept the free gift of Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Fellowship with Jesus now and Eternal life with Him in Heaven await.
Father we pray by the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives, to be flowing in love to all people., and that all people will know that we are your Disciples because we have love one for another, and we pray for the Salvation of the lost. In Jesus name we pray.
