It’s Friday and time for another link up with The Gypsy Mama! Five Minute Friday is “a time when we just write for 5 minutes on a specific topic not worrying whether everything is just right.” If you would like to join in CLICK HERE.
For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love. Galatians 5:6 Message (emphasis mine)
The most relevant aspect, the most crucial part of our Christian walk, Paul tells us, can be summed up in one word: LOVE
Why then do we attempt to turn it into something else? Why then do we sometimes make it more confusing than it needs to be?
Faith expressed in love.
Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22: 37-39 NLT
We love God by trusting him, serving him, obeying him and following him.
We love people by serving them, feeding them, doing life with them, forgiving them.
Love God. Love People.
This is relevant. Focus on this.
