God loves us so much. In life, we all make mistakes and sin. It is simply sinful
human nature. However, no matter how much we sin, it is important to know that
He still loves us and won’t stop loving us just because we did something that
doesn’t please Him. ‘Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.’ (Hebrews
13:8). If we come before God, pray and ask God to forgive us of all our sins, and
He will forgive us and give us a second chance. Instead of making excuses for
our sin, we must instead ask God to forgive us. The reason why this is possible is
because God loved us so much that He gave His only Son to die for us on the
cross so our sins could be forgiven and rose again so that we could have eternal
life(John 3:16), spending eternity with God in heaven. Because God loves us so
much, we should show that same love to others. We shouldn’t treat others
differently just because they’re different. We are to show love and care to others,
as God also loves them and by showing them love and sharing your faith with
them, you can help them know how much God loves them. To help us know how
much God loves us, we can pray this simple prayer:
God, please show me how much you love me; that no matter what you do wrong,
as long as I say I’m sorry and ask for forgiveness, you will forgive and still love
me as much as you ever did. Help me to show that same love to others.
How can we show love to others?
- Be respectful
Something as simple as being kind and respectful to others can be a way
of showing God’s love to others. Open a door for a teacher. Help your mum
and dad around the house. There are many more simple acts of kindness
that can be ways of showing love.
- Speak to people who may be feeling down
If someone may be feeling down, whether it may be one of your friends or
someone you don’t really speak to, talk to them. Pray for them. Let them
know that you care. You can even use it as an opportunity to tell them
about God’s love for them.
- Treat others how you would want to be treated, and how God would treat
We can also show love to others by treating others how you would want to
be treated. Don’t treat people unfairly just because they are different.
Remember that God wants us to “love your neighbour as
yourself”(Matthew 22:39). So before you want to treat others differently,
think about how God would treat them, so instead, treat them like how God
