Love the Lord they God with all they heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind, and with all thy strength–so how does that include loving others? Pastor Jim Fryer answers this in the following:
Greet others indiscriminitively. This means greeting, fellowshipping, and not showing favortism to some and not others. Jesus approached all people, from those who had a lot of possessions to those who were demon possessed. Our society today has convinced us that we can pick and choose to whom we are to be friendly. Unfortunately, this had bled over into the Christian realm of our relationship between brothers and sisters in Christ. Of course, we are going to have those to whom we relate easier than others, but to love others as we love ourselves, not only do we need to follow the Golden Rule, but we need to put Proverbs 18:24 into practice: “A man that hath friends must show himself friendly and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”
Jesus certainly was friendly and kind to others who did not deserve it, and yet we tend to hold grudges and want to get revenge, be demanding, and criticize others for their work for others.
“To be like Jesus, to be like Jesus, All I ask is to be like Him–on this journey from earth to glory, all I ask is to be like Him.”
Who will you reach, Christian?
