When I discover a new (or new to me) art product I love, come upon an artist that blows me away, or adore an art museum/gallery....YOU'LL KNOW! I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut when it comes to things I love or am excited about. I want others to love them & experience them too! I want people to know why they should try these products, check out the artists, or go to these venues. Aren't we like this with most areas of our life. When something impacts us in such a profound way, it seems only natural to want to share it with others! We don't want to force it upon them, but our excitement just can't be contained.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:11-12
There are people in this world who seem to bubble over with excitement about almost anything & everything! Restaurants, sales, clothing, tv, music, books..you name it...if they're excited about it...YOU'LL KNOW! They just can't help but share with you what they are excited about & why.
God loves us. GOD loves us. GOD LOVES US!!! Shouldn't that make us excited? Shouldn't that be something we want to share with those around us? I know many of you are not extroverted, talkative, never meet a stranger type of people like myself, but you can still share God's love through your life...through your actions...through your attitudes. God's love for us should so profoundly change us that it is only natural for it to be displayed in & through our lives. It is not displayed through finger pointing/wagging, rules enforcing, or making others look & act just like you.....it is displayed through LOVE!
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so also you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35
Have you experienced God's love in such a profound way that it impacts how you relate to others? Does God's love show through you in word, attitude, and actions?
