Loving other people is not an option. Jesus said, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:39) It’s right up there next to loving God with all your heart. It’s a huge deal. And notice, He didn’t say you should love your neighbor as yourself, He said you shall. In other words, if you’re going to live in His kingdom, you will do this.
Loving other people is not always easy. But when God says you shall love them, He gives you the means to do it. He’s not telling you to do something impossible. When He puts His Spirit in you, you are filled with the capacity to love other people the way He wants you to.
If you have the Holy Spirit in you, you’re good to go. Just ask Him to help you love. If you don’t have Him, ask, right now. Ask God to fill you with His Spirit. You get everything you need for light and life. (Galatians 5:22)
Loving people gets easier when you remember that you are not perfect. It’s only the grace of God that covers your own sin. Look past the problems and see into the person that God sees. Then love. Just love.
