A Short Thought

If the only reason you make friends with someone is because you're trying to convert them to your point of view, instead of a genuine love for them, then no matter how much you "proclaim" Jesus, you're not Lifting Him up and you basically fulfill the prophecy of "They profess me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me."

Jesus said, "If I be lifted up, I will draw men unto me." Is Jesus God in the Flesh?
Is God Love? Then, doesn't it follow that If Jesus is God and God is Love, then Jesus is the embodiment of Love. So, are we not lifting up Christ when we lift up Love...(Do not get me wrong...I will not separate Jesus and true Love...not this fuzzy wuzzy emotional thing called love.)

Which all gets me back to my original thought. If you refuse to love someone because they don't agree with you, you are not lifting up Christ.

Feel free to comment.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

If you really love someone you love them faults and all regardless how annoying they can be,

For God so loved the world.
While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

You said that well.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Sorry for not commenting on a while... Been busy.
But you bring up an excellent point. :)
You should love a person for who they are.

No worries Wolfie.
I've not been making the rounds of the blogs myself and haven't comments much lately either. Life has a way of crowding out the fun stuff...Unless of course your life is fun, then it is fun stuff, but sometimes we just need to step away from the computers and enjoy those around us...

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
