Hey everyone! Welcome back to TGWAM this week! Today I’m gonna talk about a particular Bible verse. This verse is Romans 5:8 and it says, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This verse is SO amazing to me. Even with ALL of our sin God still loved us enough to send His own son to die on the cross for us. God could’ve decided not to send Jesus… But He did! He decided to send His perfect son to our world. Now, I’m not a parent, but I do know that somehow a parent has an unconditional love for their children. I don’t think I’ll get it until I become a mother, but that love exists. Being God’s children means that He has that unconditional love for US times, like, a million. He could’ve kept His ONLY son in heaven with Him and just stared at us in disgrace and anger. But WE are HIS children and He loves us so much that He couldn’t bear the thought of eternity without us.
Now, I don’t know about you, but there are some people in my life that I just not stand to be around. They either talk too much, or they’re annoying, or they are just plain rude. The thing with that is, what if you’re that person to someone else and you found out about it? I know, if you’re like me, up front to kind of defend yourself you would say something along the lines of, “Well, I don’t care. They don’t like me, I don’t like them.” But then when you get to really thinking about it, it starts to set in. You get into your own mind. You start thinking things like, “Am I really a “worthless loser”?”, or “Am I really that rude to them?”, “Am I really that selfish?”, the list goes on and on. We start to doubt ourselves and think poorly of ourselves and sometimes we forget that we are children of the One true King. That what those people think of us doesn’t matter because we know who we really are. Well then all of that starts to get to our heads and maybe we become arrogant and boastful. It’s good to be boastful about our faith so we can share it with other people, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
I’m talking about when we become arrogant about it to the point of having the holier-than-thou attitude. Where we put people beneath us because they don’t have the same faith as us or they just don’t believe in the living God. Well, those tend to be the people who we start to not like. The people we become not so fond of. Those are the people who we need to love the most and preach to the most. They’re the ones who need to hear God’s word. They may shoot you down at first, but the people we don’t like are the ones we need to show the most love to. Matthew 5:44 says, “But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you;” This isn’t my favorite verse of all time and I’m sure you know why. Loving our enemies isn’t the easiest thing to do and it’s definitely one of the hardest things to do.
We need to love everyone like Jesus loved us. And yes, people may be different from you, they may be “annoying” sometimes, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t supposed to share the most important news on this Earth with them. That’s actually exactly what we’re supposed to do. Share the good news with EVERYONE we see. Whether that means paying someone a compliment when they look like they’re having a bad day, praying for that person, or even something as simple as putting that smile on your face that shows that you have something special inside of you. That makes people interested to know how you can stay so positive, because they want that hope and positivity too. We all need to keep shining His light.
Thank you for reading what I had to say this week! I hope you’ll pray that God can help you love those people you don’t like too much because those people are the ones that probably need Him the most! ❤ Don’t forget to stay tuned to TGWAM because in the next few weeks Bryanna and I are starting a cool series! Thank you once again for reading what I had to say! It means a lot!
