“I want to know Christ”. – Philippians 3:10.
To be a Christian means knowing Christ and loving Him dearly. Jesus often taught that it is difficult to live isolated from love.
Love, because of its intrinsic nature, rises above all differences of race, colour and denomination. Because love is the determining factor in life, it cannot be confined to the limitations of the human mind and experience. It must flow from the Christian in order to be seen, to inspire, to heal and to encourage. Our desire must be to know Christ better and to serve Him better in love.
Such a love cannot be created by human emotion and desire because God is its origin and source.
Lord, teach me to be strong and faithful in my love for You and also to love my neighbour as myself. Amen.
