The Love Of A Brother/Sister

Updated on November 29, 2011
  1. Romans 15:30
    I urge you, brothers and sisters, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me.

  2. 2 Corinthians 13:11
    [ Final Greetings ] Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.

  3. Galatians 5:13
    [ Life by the Spirit ] You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

How do we hear God?

We hear Him through His Word and through other Christian's love for Him and us.

How do you treat your brothers and sisters in the Lord?

Are you more involved in one or two's life
or do you just single out one or do you love all?

Some can tell how some of us single out one or two and leave the rest, the Lord says all of us are to love every single brother and sister in the Lord and do what we can for them in prayer and in all area's.

Have you felt left out lately?

Philippians 4:1

  1. [ Closing Appeal for Steadfastness and Unity ] Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!

The verse above is showing how Paul tells his brothers and sisters how he loves them and longs for them, he says they are his joy and crown..

How do you feel about your brothers and sisters in the Lord?

Do we long for each others well being do we love them with our hearts?

Do we keep them longing for a word or do we keep them waiting and wondering?

In Galatians it says to serve one another humbly in love.

To be served humble in love would be wonderful wouldn't it..

I know I would love to be served in love ..for someone to love me just the way I am..

I love to write to inspire others..lately there has been so much going on in my life and in my health.

A lot of times I feel left out yes, but I'm out there to inspire and to please God.

Sometimes do you feel left out?

Everyone at times I'm sure feels left alone.

I see things coming into my email box from newsletters to prayer needs.
Some don't even mention my need or they have something to say that hurts our hearts and makes us stumble, isn't there somewhere in the Word that says do not make your brother stumble?

Let's see..
know that I'm just using me as a example
I don't want to use someone else and hurt them.

1 Corinthians 10:32
Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God—

1 John 2:10
Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.

I say we search our hearts and before we speak we pray
words may come out that we didn't want to say and we hurt our brothers and sisters in Christ.

So let's listen to the hurting christian's and let's be humble in our words that we speak.

      Jesus Christ is the perfect example of everything, and we can readily see His perfect example of love and humility in every act act of obedience to His Father, our God. He came to Earth to live out of love and obedience to His Father, and perfectly demonstrated God's love to us. Whether Jesus was healing the sick or scolding the Pharisees, He still did so in love, always giving everyone the opportunity to forsake their former behavior, follow Him, and do what is right.

      Jesus was never unclear about perfect love. When He criticized wrong, it was not to condemn, but to correct. Jesus Himself took the punishment for sin upon Himself, and if that isn't perfect love, then we do not understand real love.

      Jesus is perfect humility as well. Being in very nature God, He has all power and all authority, yet He stooped to our weakness, even in His Mighty Power.

      I like the Apostle Paul because he shows us that a mere mortal can also exhibit the characteristics found in Jesus Christ. So Paul, as he models Christ in his life, is also an excellent example of love and humility.

      Very sincere and so true. To grow closer to the Lord we have to seek, live and give love. Prayer is so important and praying the right way will lift us up in time of need.

      We also need prayer for our needs and this message you have written is something for everyone to appreciate and learn from. Voted up!
