Loving well

As history wraps up each of us will get to stand before the Lord, some will face judgement, but for those who have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Saviour there will be no judgement.

What will happen to those who have accepted Jesus? I have wondered what He will say in those moments as we stand before him. I know we have to give an answer for the deeds done in the body but what will He ask us?

I think there could be a few things but one of them will be ‘how well did you love?’

He won’t ask about how gifted we were, or how successful we were, but He will ask, did you love? Did you love the people I put around you? Did you look beyond the outside appearance to the heart?

Pause and think for a moment, how well am I pursuing being a good lover of the people in my life? Are there any people that I hold at arms length?

As you think about that, ask the Lord for grace to embrace those who are around you and to love them.
