Walking With Jesus-Like People
I want to love God and not like the people I see every day. The people I differ with politically, culturally, and with matters of taste. But I can't love God if I do not like people.
The test of love of God is love of neighbor.
Well what is the test of love of neighbor? Love of enemy.
I love people who are like me, but people who do not know God do that. I am called as a Christ follower not to just love those who are like me(I am finding there are not to many of those) but to love those who are nothing like me(There are a lot of those types of people).
Not easy, but I must walk with Jesus. I want to walk with Jesus. He was truly human, and I want to be.
So love your neighbor and love your enemies.
