The church folks were giving testimonies of the good they had received from the recent revival. A dear lady member rose up to tell of the great blessings she had received. She testified thusly, “Before this revival meeting I hated my brother-in-law so much that I would not even go to his funeral. But since this revival I feel so different toward him— in fact, I would now be glad to go to his funeral any old day.”
Love for others is a proof of loving Jesus and obeying His Word! Jesus said in John 13:35, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” Some folks are easy to love but some are not! Jesus has the power to enable us to love the unlovely! One thing that helps us to love people is to remember how much God loves us! God loved us so much that He gave His Son to die on a cross so we could be saved and go to Heaven. All we have to do is believe in Christ and He will save us!
